9 Things Appreciated Only By Dachshund Owners

Are you a proud parent of a dachshund? Then chances are you have experienced all or at least most of the below mentioned 9 things. Every dachshund owner is aware of the many delights in having a cute wiener dog.

#1: Tolerate nicknames like “Wiener Dog”

Sometimes it’s really hard to keep your cool when some punk kids holler out nicknames or even when your friends come up with “cool” jokes in the “Wiener Dog” category. The best way to handle is to keep your lips turned upwards, or better yet is to come up with a few jokes of your own and join the fun.

#2: Maintain your lawn regularly to keep it short

If you don’t want your adorable pet to trip or get lost in your overgrown lawn, or you don’t want to carry your dog every time it wants to make a trip to the backyard then it’s best to mow your lawn regularly.

#3: Relentless comparison of your dog to a hot dog

If you are lucky then this is likely to happen at least once a day, and if you’re out of luck then be prepared to put up a brave front. Think up some inventive comparisons (veiled insults!) for your friend’s dog and deliver it with a smile!

#4: Dachshunds like to sit just like humans

This is because they believe that they are humans. Dachshunds are very bossy and think they are the head of the household. Keep your doxie under a tight leash otherwise you will be dancing to your dog’s tune in no time!

#5: Dachshunds love to eat anything and everything!

‘The puppy dog look’ truly must have originated from this breed as it’s very hard to resist “that look” they give when they beg for food. It’s very easy to over-feed your dachshund, so keep a close watch on your pet’s diet.

    Sadie loves to bury her toys in the yard and check on them every day to make sure they are still there. She does not like to see any of the color showing It is fun watching her.

    Mine loves the water…we literally have to close the bathroom door when we take a shower because she will get in with us…she is truly a bed hog and has a special toy that has to stay in the bed or she will whine until it is on the bed…washing it is almost impossible but manage to get it in there with the sheets…she is my sweet Kayleigh Boo

    Mine bites. Got the drunk neighbor, she wandered over to thank us for something, surprized us and dogs, pug was barking at her and doxie thought she was trying to hurt him so he got her behind her knee. Not his first time.

    Our doxie, named Oscar Meyer, is 15 years old and full of kisses. He is very protective of me and my husband, and Loyal. Don’t dare make a child cry. I can’t imagine life without him

    They love to tunnel….under the blankets, under the furniture covers, under pillows. You either see only the nose or the back end sticking out!!!
    Anything that is on the floor or falls on the floor is automatically claimed as their’s!!

    We have 6 minis, they all have different personalities. My dog is a springer and he digs. Frank Sr. digs right along with him.
