Basenji Characteristics

Originally used to hunt and flush small game in the Congo, the Basenji is now an increasingly popular breed as a family pet.  They’re clever and independent, but deeply loyal to their families. If you can meet their needs, they can adapt to families, individuals, and even apartment living.

Fast Facts

  • Energy
  • Size
  • Trainability
With such a unique regal appearance and personality, the Basenji can be a challenge for some. But for people love a little attitude and intelligence, the Basenji can be the ideal companion. The Basenji stands about 16 inches at the shoulder and weighs between 22-24 pounds. These dogs come in a variety of colors including black, blue, brindle, and white. They also shed very little, which is appealing, but their temperament and personality are very unique.  
 
Similar to the Pekingese, these dogs have little desire to please their humans, and their extreme intelligence makes them difficult to train. Early socialization and obedience training can help here, but it is important to be a clear and consistent alpha leader in the house; otherwise, your basenji will assume the position and be very difficult to maintain.
 
Those who know the Basenji best say the breed is great at making you keep your house tidy, as nearly any object left on the floor will be chewed on. In many ways, this trait, plus the Basenji's low-shed coat makes the breed perfect for highly clean and organized individuals and families. Finally, similar to many Huskies, the Basenji is a known escape artist. It is not advised to leave these dogs unattended in your backyard for long, as they can scale many fences and are undeterred by electronic fences.
 
For owners looking for a poised, intelligent, independent dog that still has tons of affection, this is the dog for you.

Dog parks and activities 

As a large city, there are plenty of parks for you and your dog to enjoy. According to a study by the Trust for Public Land (TPL), Los Angeles has 13 dog parks, approximately 0.3 parks per 100,000 residents. Eight of the city’s dog parks are off-leash parks.


Some of the most popular dog parks in the city are Laurel Canyon Dog Park in the hills of Mulholland, Lake Hollywood Park by the famous Hollywood sign, and Alice’s Dog Park in Pasadena.

That said, there are plenty of dog-friendly beaches in the areas outside of the city. Some of the most popular beach spots to take your pup include Granada Beach in the Belmont Shore Beach and Huntington Dog Beach, a little further south, in Orange County.
