The Australian Cattle Dog in the Show Ring

Training Issues of a 4000 Year Old Breed

Independence and a strong will are the common traits of a Basenji; however, they are not characteristics that can or even should be trained out of their personality. Being descendants of wild African dogs gives them unique qualities that are bred so deep there is no chance for changing them any more than there is chance for changing their eye color.

This does not mean there is no room for obedience training; however, those who assume they can simply dominate four thousand years worth of hardwiring may want to reconsider. [...]

Teaching a dog tricks should be done at an early age when they are still pretty receptive to learning.
