The Dachshund Handbook
A-Z on caring for & training your Dachshund from the experts.
“This book is an excellent resource for anyone who is looking to purchase or rescue their first or fourth Dachshund. FIVE STARS,” DEIRDRE, AMAZON TOP CONTRIBUTOR: PETS
There’s no other dog quite like the Dachshund. They are clever, brave, curious, incredibly loyal, affectionate, lively, full of their own importance – & lots of FUN!
They are also typical hounds, so they can be a bit stubborn & slow to housetrain! If not properly socialized & trained, some can become too fond of the sound of their own bark.
The trick is to persuade them that what YOU want them to do is actually what THEY want to do!
This book, part of the Canine Handbooks, Amazon’s No.1 Dog Breed Series, guides you step-by-step to raise & train a happy Miniature or Standard Dachshund from Day 1 to old age, covering:
- Where Puppy Should Sleep
- Best Daxie Crate Training & Housetraining Methods
- Successful Training
- Controlling Barking
- Nipping & Jumping Up
- How Long Can I Leave My Puppy?
- Exercising Puppies
- Can I Stop My Dachshund Digging?
- How To Avoid Back Problems
- What Makes My Dachshund Tick?
- These & dozens of other questions are answered at length by canine author Linda Whitwam & 14 leading breeders with
- Miniature, Standard, Smooth, Wire & Long-Haired Dachshunds.
