About Us At DachshundLuke.com – Everything Dachshunds

My name is Karen and I love Dachshunds!

My parents brought me a Dachshund when I was a child, and she became like my sister. I was hooked on Dachshunds! I have not only been a mummy to my own Dachshunds but also fostered many Dachshunds in my home for Dachshund rescue.

Being a Dachshund owner can bring its own challenges. Although Dachshunds are very loyal and loving, they do have a stubborn streak and training can be a battle of wills.

My experiences with Dachshunds included learning the correct way to potty train, dealing with over and under eaters, emergency operations, raising puppies, international travel with a Dachshund, and finding the correct Dachshund friendly toys and supplies.

Dachshund Luke is our little red mini who we love and cherish. He is a joy to be with and recently travelled with us from America to Spain.

    Thanks! Your blog post is certainly tremendously helpful to me. I have 2 little pooches of my own and, mainly because of my inexperience as a new pet owner, have made some mistakes in their training along the way. It is definitely true that it is the human that needs training more than the puppy! I definitely will return to your website for more useful advice.

    I just adopted a 2 y/o male stud from a breeder. He (Oscar) is neutered. The man I adopted him from said he was potty trained but…he had a fenced in yard with beautiful green grass, I live in the country with brown dried up grass & no fence. No matter how many times I take him outside on a leash & not on a leash, he will NOT pee. He does Poop outside though. The worst thing I could have done is when he peed on my carpet after being outside last night for 2+ hours is I yelled, spanked (not hard), & put him in his crate for 15 minutes :( I love him dearly but this is making me crazy. He has also stopped eating. I only adopted him 3 days ago…HELP thank you

    Hello Marie,
    Congratulations on getting Oscar and thanks for visiting Dachshund Luke! I am sure Oscar is going to be a darling for you. It will take him a little time to understand this is his new home – poor baby is probably scared and missing the other dogs at the breeders. As you are aware the spanking and yelling will only make him hide from you and still pee. Give him lots of love and time to get used to his new life – 3 days is a short time since his routine has completely changed.

    I am more concerned that he is not eating and hope that has now changed. Did the breeder tell you what food he was eating there? It is imperative that he stay on the same food – if you want to change it then it should be done gradually. If he is still not eating then you could tempt him with a very small piece of plain boiled chicken mixed in with his food. He may also need to visit a vet to make sure he is healthy.
    If you have to call the breeder to find out about the food then you might also want to ask about his normal routine and try to mimic it.

    Not sure if this is possible but is there and area that you could fence off for him – so that he can be outside off the leash?
    He may be trying to mark his territory with the peeing inside. Please work with him to show him where you want him to pee and praise him when he does. Follow a routine and keep to it. Have you read my ebook? It couldn’t hurt to start potty training all over again with him. It shouldn’t take long but does take some patience. I think once he has settled down and with some loving training he is going to be a perfect dachshund.

    Lots and love and hugs are needed to make him feel secure in his new home. Enjoy

    I have 3 male dachshunds and I can’t keep them from constantly marking their territory all over my house. What can I do?

    Hello Idk if you are still answering but I am in tears. I have a mini and we were buds for the last 13 year’s of her life. 2 years ago (she’s now almost 14) the alpha dog died, and we moved to a New house within 2 months of that dogs death. That’s when Missy started peing and pooping in the house. A little at first. Now she will pee right where she lays with her blanket, and only move to 8 inches from where it was. Once in awhile will lay on it anyway! She has anxiety non stop. Then we had to finally male her an outside dog. Sje does the something out there, resting in the pre and poop zone. The vet seems to think she’s fine physically and has no answers otherwise. Ive tried pads and she pees where ever. Ive tried diapers and she rips them off. Now she stays outside even during severe storms cause we cant hace here in the house. My hisband jas a really bad back and I slipped in her pee a few months ago and am still healing with messed up hip and dislocated tailbone. Can he training still work for my dog?
