Number 1- This is probably the most important so pay attention! these guys are stubborn you need lots of patience and tons of treats for a reward to be able to get a dachshund to do what you want. Repeat after me REWARD! REWARD! REWARD! AND PATIENCE PATIENCE PATIENCE.
Number 2- Dachshunds are one of the many breeds that suffer from allergic reactions because of certain vaccines normally their face will swell and a little benadryl will do the trick but sometimes it can be a case where they need to be taken into the animal hospital.
Number 3- Dachshunds love to burrow because they were bred to hunt badgers and other burrow dwelling animals. So be prepared when they want to snuggle up under your blankets and become your very own personal foot warmer.
Number 4- They are extremely loyal so don’t be surprised when you notice that you have a little wiener following your every move!
Number 5- This breed is to say the least SNEAKY … when they are silent suspect they are getting into something BECAUSE THEY ARE LOL.
Number 6- Dachshunds love other dachshunds they have what is called short leg syndrome it is a condition where they only like their own breed (LOL case by case scenario).
Number 7- Dachshunds are attention hogs they will do anything to get you to fulfill their every need.
Number 8- Dachshunds are prone to weight gain so be sure to measure their food and don’t give in when they act like they are starving. Instead just toss them a carrot or two.
