Ford is my up-and-coming performance rock star! He is the fourth generation basenji I have bred and is my first, first generation African basenji – to mean his Ntomba father was imported in 2010 as a puppy direct from a native village in Congo. I am enjoying learning the training differences between a first generation African and those down from the 1987-1988 Avongara imports.

Ford earned his Coursing Ability title and got his QC. After he grew up a little bit, he earned his AKC Field Championship (FC) easily.
Ford got to play in FAST CATs one weekend and ended up with 124 points (150 is needed for title). He has the 3rd fastest lifetime score (out of 71 basenjis) in only three runs! Imagine where he would go if he could run more often.
Ford has flown through his first two NACSW NW levels, with several pronounced elements and a 3rd and 4th placement out of roughly 30 dogs each trial. We missed one hide and timed out in our first NW3 trial but ended up in third place (only two qualifiers) out of 28 entries. His second attempt was a heartbreaker, we were perfect through the last element where I screwed him up, earning our first ever “no!”. How many attempts will he need?
Fifth time was the charm, Ford finally gets his first NW3 pass and with a first place overall over 30-ish entries and 5 other qualifiers!
Ford gets another HIT at his very next NW3 trial over 15 qualifiers and 30-ish emtries. That’s crazy!
Ford earns his AKC Novice and Advanced titles and has a few legs in Excellent. We will work on Advance Elite when we can.
Ford has earned a HIT in both AKC Advance and Excellent scentwork trials
We also played at a recent NACSW Elment trial earing his L1I title.
Debuted with a bang in Novice B at the 2017 BCOA National Specialty where he earned a 196.5, 1st place and beat his mother Ph’nx and sister Tar out for High In Trial.
His second leg he did not finish on his recall portion and his score dropped from a 196 to 193; good for 2nd place out of 18 entries.
His third and titling leg was a dream come true. He earned a 198.5 to not only take the class, but he beat out 38 other entries (border collies, goldens, dobermans, obedience trial champions) for my first ever AKC All Breed High in Trial. His granddam Sage earned a UKC all Breed High in Trial back in her day.
Earned his BN title easily.
Ford is now in Masters and has multiple QQ’s under his belt as well as MACH points.
Debuted at the BCOA National Specialty in August 2016. Earned a perfect score of 100 and first place. Finished his RN title with a 98 and 99. Readily earned his RA and RE with placements.
