Basenji mixes do very well with children, especially when raised with them from puppyhood and properly trained and socialized.

Basenji mixes, like all breeds, should be trained and socialized with people and animals from an early age. Dogs that are not exposed to different situations, people, and experiences can become timid adults.

Basenji mixes have variable temperaments depending on the breed they are mixed with, but basenjis themselves are noted as intelligent, affectionate and highly alert.

Owners will enjoy their basenji mix best if they are able to meet the dog halfway and have a sense of humor about the mischief they can get into.
