A club for Basenji fanciers in Northwestern Oregon
About our club
Established in 1989 the Willamette Valley Basenji Club is a small group of local basenji owners with similar interests. As a club, we have grown both in scope and activities. The clubs activities include conformation, lure coursing, obedience, rally and rescue.
We are here to help the person interested in acquiring a basenji with helpful advise on what basenjis are really like, how they will fit into your home environment as well as your lifestyle. Basenjis are not the right dog for everyone. They are unique and have a personality all their own, very different from other breeds of dogs.
Please contact a club member for more information on basenjis. These people have years of experience and can offer you sound advice as well as a visit with adults &/or puppies in a home environment.
As members of the Willamette Valley Basenji Club and the Basenji Club of America, we have a personal lifetime concern for each dog we breed or own. Our goal is to create, foster, protect and promote interest in basenjis by keeping the good of the breed foremost in our actions to the best of our knowledge and ability and to educate in order to preserve the basenji's unique characteristics. We will educate potential buyers regarding their future responsibilities as dog owners and conduct ourselves in a sportsmanlike manner and maintain a high spirit of cooperation at any dog related activity we attend. We will also promote the well being of the Willamette Valley Basenji Club by conducting ourselves in a professional manner. Above all, we will always act in accordance with the American Kennel Club's rules & regulations.
The members of the Willamette Valley Basenji Club are located throughout the Willamette Valley in Oregon; we have formed a community that encourages each other as we grow in knowledge, in service and in love of our basenjis. We believe all basenjis are equal and entitled to a good life through guide of their owners.
