There are certain foods which are a big no-no for Dachshunds. Feeding, even a little amount of these foods can prove harmful to them. Below is the list of those food items:
Owing to their stubborn nature, Dachshunds can be quite irritated at times. They also tend to nip, which can be quite unsafe for the kids. With proper socialization and training, early from puppyhood, they can be made to get along well with kids. They don’t gel with strangers quickly, so be vigilant when your children’s friends are there in your house.
Yes, they do. Surprisingly, these dogs have a loud, sharp bark which is unusual for small breed dogs. This trait can be attributed to their hunting genes, as their ancestors helped hunters in hunting rabbits and badgers. For calming this behaviour, try not to isolate your Dachshunds, as doing it aggravates the barking tendency.
Dachshunds have a propensity for biting, often due to fear, anxiety or aggression. Unsocialized Dachshunds are the ones who bite out of fear and anxiety. Take them outside your house for regular walks and make them socialize with other people and pets. Gift them some wonderful chew toys to satisfy their natural chewing instincts.
Adopt a Dachshund puppy only when they are completely weaned off, usually around two months. One should not adopt puppies below this age as they need the mother’s love and care for proper health and behaviour as well
