Sinbaje’s Africans Continue2Inspire

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. His first competition at the BCOA National Specialty in August did not go as well as expected. He had the second highest score going into the second run, when he goosed his competitor. We could have run him muzzled but I decided it was best to pull him as there was a lot of tension on the courses. We’ll be back
Ford has flown through his first two 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 only NW3 trial but ended up in third place (only two qualifiers) out of 28 entries.
Currently has one leg towards his BN title. Earned a 2nd place out of 15 all breed entries. I cost him 3 points, which dropped his score from a 199 to a 196
Ford is seemingly stuck in Open. We will keep working.
