Dachshund Training - Tips to Remember

Imagine what it would be like if you could actually see your Dachshund running and jumping just like a normal dog. Until they were bred to look obedient, many people enjoyed the company of these little dogs. They are fun to have around and their big personalities make them wonderful watchdogs. Unfortunately, these little guys have a tendency to be hard to train. They tend to just want to have fun, and without someone to bend to their will, they tend to be Snoopy-like in their stubbornness.


Obedience training is not necessarily for the dog, but for the owner. Often, this is the first training the owner will receive. It is important that they be consistent in their training, as the dog will have mainframes that are independent. Because of this, they may tend to ignore the owner's commands. If they get away with ignoring the commands, the owner may become frustrated and try and correct the dog's behavior with aggressive actions. The owner usually becomes more aggressive, and the dog may become even more stubborn. This is when it can get very hard to train the Dachshund properly. They are very independent, and tend to just do what they want to do. This means they will ignore the commands, and only do so when they want to. A dog that enjoys its owner's attention and is properly socialized will be able to just enjoy the time spent with their master. They will not become stressed or worried, and will instead be able to focus on having fun. energies will be able to be spent playing, rather than focusing on pleasing the owner.


Owners of these dogs should not be discouraged if the dog continues to display a stubborn attitude. They can be trained, and should be handled firmly and with consistency. When they are, however, it is important for owners to remember to take a break. They should be praised, and allowed to rest. It is perfectly fine for the dog to be lethargic for a few hours, but should not be allowed to carry on like this for too long.


If owners are firm and say "no," in response to the dog's disobedience, they should take the dog out of the situation. They should leave them in a different area of the house or yard, and try to explain why this is important. They should also be careful not to be too forceful with their commands, as this may frighten the dog.


When a dog is stubborn, it can be hard to correct their behaviors. There may be a particular reason for this, such as a physical problem. They should have an owner who is dedicated to working with them, and who understands the special traits that their dog can possess. This will allow them to be obedient when they are needed, and build a strong bond with the dog. Dachshund training is not necessarily an easy process. The owner and dog will have to work together, and speak with� their minds. In other words, dogs can be stubborn, and this is a quite normal thing. What they need is someone who will listen to them, and display authority. If the dog senses a weak owner, they will become unresponsive to their commands.


When owners decide to go the route of Dachshund training, they not only want to make sure that their dog is obedient. They want a well behaved dog, and nothing comes easily. When starting their training, they should know that they are making a commitment to a solution that may or may not work. Their goal should be to find a way to make the relationship work, and make their dog happy.


Many dogs end up in shelters because of behavioral problems. This can happen for many reasons. Aggression is a big reason, often related to dog to dog aggression. This type of aggression is usually the result of poor breeding. Sincebred dogs are not allowed to breed, and because aggression is sometimes a result of fear, they are put up for adoption. Shelters are not places that want to see these dogs put up for adoption, as they will be difficult to place.


Once a Dachshund has been to a shelter, they will be evaluated, and any aggressive behavior will be considered, and could lead to the dog being put down. All dogs that have aggressive behaviors can be trained to behave, but when aggression becomes a habit, it may become harder to change.


Remember that any dog can be trained to be submissive. Their role within the hierarchy is important, and as long as they know there is a leader, they are less likely to engage in behaviors that can upset the balance.


As you have seen, positive reinforcement, punishment-free methods work well. Reward behaviors to encourage the dog, and punish them for behaviors you don't want to encourage. Avoid physical punishment, since often aggressive behavior is a result of fear.
