2. Dachshund proof your home and garden
If you have a new Dachshund puppy, you will also need to adapt your home and garden to keep him safe. Dachshunds were originally bred as hunting dogs to dig up cats and dogs. Can also be taken out of the herds.
3. Start basic dog training right away
You can also start basic dog training with your Dachshund at 8 weeks of age. They learn most things in the first 16 weeks of their lives, so be sure to make time for training early on.
4. Put a garden table on your lawn
The vast majority of Dachshunds hate wind and rain. When they are little, it can be a little cold outside and they love to walk around indoors!
5. Know which foods are poisonous to Dachshunds
It is also important to be aware of human foods that are poisonous to Dachshunds as some may surprise you. Foods that Dachshunds should not eat include chocolate, garlic, onions, grapes, raisins, avocados, macadamia nuts, cooked bones, xylitol sweetener (found in many foods) and sweets.
So, before you feed any human food, just make sure you check whether it is safe for the Dachshund to eat.
