Training - Patience is definitely a virtue!
Dachshunds by their very nature are highly spirited,
are strong pack members and have a will of their own.
'Being the owner of dachshunds, to me a book on dog discipline becomes a volume of inspired humor. Every sentence is a riot. Someday, if I ever get a chance, I shall write a book, or warning, on the character and temperament of the dachshund and why he can't be trained and shouldn't be. I would rather train a striped zebra to balance an Indian club than induce a dachshund to heed my slightest command. When I address Fred I never have to raise either my voice or my hopes. He even disobeys me when I instruct him in something he wants to do.'
Despite the quote from E B White, take hope, because Dachshunds are trainable.
