I've watched shows about them and heard them yodel, It is pretty neat. My half border collie half who knows does it too though, she sounds just like a Basenji! But she will bark like a normal dog sometimes too! When are you getting you Basenji? When you get him/her you will have to let me know all the details! I have always loved the Basenji breed but never knew anyone that owned one to know what they are like.
