I second Quercus, punishing a Basenji in a negative physical manner like squeezing her muzzle could make her even more aggressive and a real danger to your child. As Quercus asked.. what was the events leading up to the dog snapping at your daughter? Did you watch the whole thing? Was she sleeping, was she next to a toy or food she was trying to guard? Was she really tired and trying to tell your daughter she didn't want to play? Basenjis respond best with positive reinforcement training, lots of practice and treats every time someone picks her up would be a wise investment now.

I know they say dogs don't understand spite... but I swear Basenjis do.
