Temperament of the Breed

The Basenji is alert, proud, independent, affectionate, demanding, energetic, playful, intelligent, charming, eager to please and curious. They can be reserved with strangers but can also form strong bonds with people. It should not be trusted with non-canine pets. They are usually patient, but do best with older considerate children.

The Basenji dislikes wet weather. They like to chew, so giving them lots of toys of their own would be a good idea. The breed likes to climb and can easily get over chain wire fences. It does not bark and makes a low, liquid ululation instead. It can be described as speedy, frisky, tireless at play and teasing the owner into play.

Activity Level

Exercise Need

The Basenji needs vigorous daily exercise. They have a tendency to become fat and lazy unless the owner is consistent about it. This breed needs a long daily walk.

Basenjis are highly intelligent and learn quickly, but they also have a cat-like independence and "self-motivation" which can make them somewhat casual about obedience. They respond well to training but their strong desire to play can lead to behavior problems if left alone.

Living Conditions

The Basenji will do okay in an apartment if it gets enough exercise. It is very active indoors and a small yard will do. The Basenji is happiest when it is kept with two or three other Basenji.



The Basenji washes itself with its paws, sheds little to no hair and has no doggie smell, so very little grooming (minimal brushing and bathing) is needed. This is a good dog for people with allergies.


Health Problems

This breed is prone to Fanconi's syndrome (kidney problems), genetic Hemolytic Anemia, hip dysplasia, progressive retinal atrophy, malabsorption, anorexia, diarrhea, persistent pupillary membrane and eye problems.

Life Expectancy: About 10-12 years
