The "barkless dog of Africa," the Basenji comes to America via the jungles of the Congo. Unique not only for his yodel-like voice, this affectionate and aristocratic canine possesses the grace and cleanliness of a feline, the hunting instincts of a terrier, the speed of a greyhound and the smarts and naughtiness of a typical teenager. As a family dog, companion, weekend sports dog and show dog, the Basenji is a delightful choice for the experienced, patient owner, willing to devote the necessary time to raise and train this sensitive, independent canine.
Sighthound author, judge and breeder, Juliette Cunliffe provides an insightful retelling of the Basenji's origins and development in Africa as well as the breed's rise to fame in the US. The breed's characteristics and breed standard are presented in addition to excellent advice about selecting, raising and house-training a puppy. All Basenji owners will welcome the author's helpful chapters on everyday care, including feeding, grooming and exercise, and obedience training and problem-solving based on a positive training and commonsense approach. This book is the responsible first choice of every new owner of a Basenji.
