Frankly, this is far too soon ! It doesn't hurt a dog to fast for 24 - 36, even 48 hours. Just make sure cold fresh water is always available.

If there is a reluctance to drink, a tiny bit of honey in the water often helps - or get electrolytes (obtainable in concentrated bottle form) and mix that up.

I start mine back with a little chicken or fish and boiled white rice, using the water the meat or fish was cooked in to moisten the rice. Keep this up, small meals, more frequently than usual and then SLOWLY start to incorporate the normal diet with the rice / fish / chicken. Gradually lessen the 'diet' and increase the normal food until you are back to normal.

And name when you decide on it so I can add him to the on-line Basenji Pedigree database. Photo too - but to me as well as to the forum cos I can't 'lift' them from here'

Please don't breed from a crossbreed when there are so many pedigree dogs and puppies looking for a loving home.

You have no idea what scourges could be behind your mix and bringing more mixes into this already overcrowded world is just irresponsible.

Over here, even puppy farmers eschew breeding cross-breeds.

I never normally advocate spaying but in this instance it would be the responsible way to go.

This is perfectly normal Basenji behaviour ! They clean themselves (and each other). I have a photo somewhere of a line of five Basenjis in a conga-line, each cleaning the one in front. We've been for a particularly muddy walk as I recall.

Daily, I get two filthy dirty Basenjis into the car in the woods, sometimes they appear to be wearing Wellington boots. But the drive home takes only about 20 minutes and two beautifully clean Bs leap out.

Keep an eye out for inter-digital cysts - but feet cleaning is nothing to worry about.

@evillemon said in How to start showing:

Yes we figured we will wait until he is at least two before we make any decisions on neutering him.

Two is still far too young. He needs to have achieved structural and hormonal maturity. If you are adamant you are going to cut him, wait at least until he is three. Or four. Or five. And then maybe the need to do it will have disappeared.

@evillemon said in How to start showing:

He is intact (but we are soon clipping him I think)

Whatever for ??? Don't even think it - It serves no useful purpose.
