We’ve identified some crucial points thanks to the good people at If you’re thinking whether or not you should get a pet Dachshund for your family, Read this article to decide if it’s a good fit for you.

Dachshunds are very playful. But they are a little stubborn. They need proper training or they can go out of control. You need to be persistent and provide the proper obedience training to them. All you need is good will to make the pet perfect for your family. You also need to be careful to maintain their health. Due to having a long body with short legs, they require some special care than other dogs. So you must make sure they do not jump much and hurt themselves. Also keep an eye on them when they play with kids, kids might accidentally hurt them, so keep a watch on their fragile spine and make the kids learn how to properly handle a Dachshund. If they become obese it may put pressure on their back too. So be CAREFUL.

They are very social and need to train everyday… so they need your company a lot! Ohh, this cute canine runs really fast. But they do not need high intensity exercises. If you want them to have a leash you must make it light. It can bark at almost everything happening around him. May be the footsteps of people or even the sound of leaves falling! Don’t worry, it’s their nature to be territorial.

Yes, they love being complemented. They love being pampered. They are not such dogs which can stay alone for a long time. This little cute dog is a great digger. They may dig fences, beds or even your carpets. So prepare for it!  When you will keep them with children, make sure your dog is well acquainted with them. They are also not aware of their size and can be very territorial around other dogs and try to take on bigger dogs to protect you or their territory, sometimes with tragic consequences. So you need to socialize them with other dogs from the beginning.
