Potty training was a pain. A pain means real pain. Dachshund class of 2020 #quarantined shirt Had to take hours and hours and hours of training; weeks wherein I was on the verge of crying; and the dachshund was happily pooping and peeing everywhere in my large 3-bedroom flat with 10 rooms in it. Which meant; end of every single day, I was cleaning the floors of the entire flat including carpets. Finally, I bought a pen and play area; and taught him to be confined to an area whenever he wishes to pee or poop. Again, thanks to God, since dachshunds are notoriously difficult to train; Mr. Peanut decided enough is enough – and decided pooping and peeing in the designated potty tray in the bathroom which is kept open at all times for him to access. Having said that – the training does not end here; though he never poops and pees anymore anywhere in the apartment; but at times, if his mood is not well, he may decide to pee or poop in the bathroom but not on the tray.
Anyways, I do clean it up. Mr. Peanut simply Dachshund class of 2020 #quarantined shirt loves chasing big dogs. Which means, when I take him for a 10-min walk outside which he absolutely loves; he has no fear whatsoever of larger dogs which are roaming around. I have neighbors with large Dobermans, Labradors and Alsatians; and my 50-day puppy chases them, bites their tails and what not. My first day experience was so exhausting chasing him around and ensuring he doesn’t start fighting with anyone and everyone; I had to buy a harness which he absolutely abhors but I need to put it on whilst going out. Dachshunds were bred as badger hunters; and in its DNA it is still a hunting dog with the ferocity of fighting to the death and never back down when cornered; this is what makes them very stubborn and difficult to train.
