Book | Dachshund: Your Happy Healthy Pet - Duration: 1:02.
Training a dachshund requires a fair bit of patience, firmness and consistency. There are exercises that will show you how to teach your dog what it should know to share your home and survive.
The biggest tip to remember is that your dachshund is an animal, not a little person. They only live in the present and what happened in the past in is long forgotten.
Dog Training – What Works, and What Doesn't
Some dog training methods are based on what makes the OWNER feel good, rather than what on actually makes sense to the dog. For example, "positive-only" dog training is a big fad right now. Now, treats can be great motivators for training Dachshunds, but if your dog will only obey for a treat, then HE is in charge of his obedience, not you. [read more]
Teach Your Dachshund To Respect You
"Respect Training" is the dog training method I use and recommend for training Dachshunds. I often get phone calls from distressed owners who are having trouble with their dog. Let's listen in on a phone conversation between myself and a typical dog owner (we'll call her Kathy Armstrong). Kathy: "Michele, my dog Jake is being difficult. I can't make him do anything. He only listens to me when he's in the mood." Me: "I see. Would you say Jake is behaving rudely?" Kathy (surprised): "What do you mean? How can a dog be rude?" [read more]
Dachshunds are somewhat notorious for being difficult to potty train. They are intelligent, but they generally have their own mind.  However, if you're persistent, you can generally convince your dachshund to use the bathroom where she's supposed to do so.
Training a dachshund requires patience and firmness. Repeat: it requires patience and firmness. Dachshunds were bred for their strong independence and to make decisions on their own. Those strong traits remain today and while admirable, make them a very difficult breed to train.
As you begin your training keep in mind that you should keep training sessions very sort, no more than 5 minutes at any one time. Repeat sessions 2 - 3 times a day. Small bits of food or treats are an excellent way to keep your independent dog interested in what's going on. By religiously practicing exercises with tasty rewards and lots of praise, your dachshund can learn to walk on a leash, at your side without pulling. Your dog can learn to sit by your side when you stop walking and wait for you to begin. I know this sounds crazy, but you can do it.

We really like the wire dog crates because it allows your Dachshund a full view of his surroundings. Although, you would want to cover the crate at night to encourage sleeping habits and a sense of security during their “alone time”. Check with friends and family, they may have one you could borrow or have. However, if you are looking for a place to buy a wire dog crate click on the button.
I know that most of you don’t have dachshunds, but I’m astounded by how many e-mails I get about crate training them. Because it’s hard. Crate training any dog is hard and I certainly remember my black Lab puppies crying their little eyes out in their new crates when I was growing up. But dachshunds are relentless in their barking, crying and howling and two or three months of sleeplessness is bound to drive any new dog owner into utter sadness or flat-out insanity.
When Mitch and I first got Noodle , things were disastrous on the sleeping front. We’d been told that crate training a dachshund was imperative to both the dog’s happiness as well as ours, since the breed tends to be stubborn, difficult to housebreak, and anxious when separated from their peeps. And so Noodle went in the crate, and we went crazy. She barked, and cried, and howled.
