I love Dachshunds and support Dachshund Rescue. I created my How To Potty Train A Dachshund ebook when I found out some dachshunds ended up being surrendered simply because they were not house broken.
Dachshund Luke travelled with us from Florida to Spain where we stayed in the mountains for 4 years. During that time I started this website and my husband wrote a book! We returned to Florida with a rescue Podenco dog called Puppy and a cat called Kitty Kat. I currently live in Florida with my wonderful husband.
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
I rescued a 6 year old miniature dashound female dapple dog, she dribbles pee when you pet her. How do you stop her from doing this?
I had Doxies that were so happy to see someone that they peed. You do not have a medical history on your little one or you did not mention it. Call the Vets office and make an appointment. They will ask for a urine sample. They first send that out to check for an infection. My Senior Doxie Gretchen has wet my bed beyond repair and I tried doggie diapers. The diapers work. I also have pills to give to her to control her bladder. I take her outside like I did when she was a puppy. Sometimes you have to retrain an older dog. To keep her from just sleeping all day we are working again on her fun skills like roll over, shake and down. Treats reinforce the behavior.
