They're smart, not necessarily obedient  !
And they will out smart and out-train you if you’re not careful. Enrollment in puppy kindergarten and basic household obedience is strongly encouraged. A good obedience class will help you learn to communicate with your Basenji and improve the quality of life for all. Basenjis have a reputation for being untrainable but they learn quickly using positive reinforcement techniques. Avoid trainers who use harsh techniques—there is never a reason to hit or harm a dog during training. Visit the link, Choosing a Trainer, for tips to help you find a trainer suited to you and your new pup.
