Dachshunds are intelligent dogs with an independent nature and playful spirit. Because of this, they can be mischievous. Be patient, firm, and consistent when training them. Because they were bred for hunting, they can exhibit some behaviors that are related to that. 

Dachshunds were bred to be hunting dogs, and like all hunting dogs, they tend to bark. Their bark can be loud, especially considering their small size. Many Dachshunds are sensitive to changes in their environments, which increases the likelihood of excessive barking.

How to Kill Fleas With Dawn & Vinegar

Posted on July 27, 2019 at 8:36 AM Comments comments (0)
Here at DTD Puppies we like to make sure that our customers know of different tips that can save you money and do the job.
Put a teaspoon of vinegar in your pet's water bowl to help prevent fleas. Some pets do not like the taste, so you may need to adjust the quantity of vinegar. You can use all-purpose vinegar or apple cider vinegar. If you have adjusted the amount and the pet still will not drink, then you can buy vinegar in capsule form. Fleas will be repelled by the smell radiating from your pet's skin. The remedy also acts as a natural deodorizer and boosts an animal's immune system.

Bathe your animals using Dawn dish soap of any scent. Fill the tub with warm water and pour in ½ to 1 cup of Dawn. Soak the animal in the soap and water for at least five minutes. Use the Dawn to lather and clean your animal, starting at the ears and working your way to the tail. After your animal is dry, use an inexpensive flea comb to groom it. Drown any fleas on the comb by placing it in a bowl with soapy water available.
Add ½ to 1 cup vinegar to the bath solution. The smell will wear off after awhile, but you can add scented oil to the bathwater to cover it up. Add vinegar to the bowl of soapy water, dip a flea comb in it, and comb your pet.
To see how bad the flea problem is, fill a shallow bowl with soapy water and vinegar and put it next to a light. Leave it out overnight, then check to see if there are any fleas that have drowned in the water.
Fleas live not only on your pets, but on your furniture as well. If you have furniture that can be cleaned, use a solution of Dawn dish soap and water to wipe off the upholstery. Use Dawn to clean all of your flooring. Put a drop or two in a steam cleaner to clean your carpet. Do not add more, as it will create too many suds. This will help to rid the carpets of flea debris.
Fill a spray bottle with a couple of tablespoons of vinegar and water. Use this on your pet between baths. This can also be misted on furniture, pillows, curtains and bedding. Adding different oils will make it a natural deodorizer.

Dachshund Tip of the Day !

Posted on April 12, 2014 at 1:11 PM Comments comments (4)
Dachshunds are genetically prone to various health problems, but not more so than other dog breeds.Generally, dachshunds have a normal life span, but being aware of the different health issues your dog is susceptible to can help with preventative measures, as well as detecting and treating diseases early on.

A dachshund’s small size also plays a role in the breed’s longevity; it is well known that smaller dog breeds live longer than larger dog breeds.Potential health problems and conditions

Some health problems dachshunds may develop include;

  • Back problems. Dachshunds have fragile backs and are prone to conditions such as; intervertebral disk degeneration, spinal trauma, and back pain.  Many times, back problems in dachshunds can be treated with physical therapy, medications, support (back brace), and rest; however,  back surgery may be required for more severe cases. Read more about Back problems
  • Paralysis. Back injury and IVDD are the two most common causes of paralysis in dachshunds.  Paralysis isn’t always permanent, as surgery, physical therapy, and other treatment options can sometimes correct the condition.  If your dog has been diagnosed with permanent paralysis there are a few things you can learn in order to improve his quality of life.  Read more about Paralysis
  • Leg problems. A dachshund’s short and crooked legs are also sensitive and prone to developing issues.  Patellar luxation is prevalent among the breed as well as many other small breeds.  Leg problems in dachshunds can also be a sign of an underlying issue such as paralysis and back problems. Read more on leg problems
  • Seizures. Seizures are one thing dachshunds may be genetically predisposed to.  That’s why it is extremely important to thoroughly research the parent’s health history before obtaining a puppy.  Seizures can be life-threatening if not controlled, but with the proper medical guidance dachshunds with seizures can live a normal life. Read more about Seizures
  • Skin issues. Allergies, acanthosis nigricans, and pattern baldness are some of the skin ailments that dachshunds can develop.  While skin problems in dogs are not typically life-threatening, they can lower your dachshund’s quality of life if not kept under control.  With the help of your veterinarian, you can create a treatment plan that relieves your dachshund from itchiness, irritation, inflammation, and other skin symptoms. Read more on Skin issues
  • Eye problems. Cataracts, glaucoma, progressive retinal atrophy, keratoconjuntivitis sicca, and corneal dystrophy are some of the eye problems commonly inherited in doxies.  PRA (progressive retinal atrophy) in particular, affects dachshunds.  It is not a curable disease, and rapidly progresses; that is why every breeder should get their dogs tested for it before commencing breeding.
  • Obesity. Obesity can be a major problem in dachshunds; and although they are predisposed to becoming overweight, exercise and diet play an important role in the development of the condition.  Addressing obesity in dachshunds early on can help prevent secondary health problems such as; heart disease, respiratory issues, and back problems.
  • Hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is one of the causes of obesity in dachshunds.  It can also be a cause of various other symptoms including; fatigue, inflammation, intolerance to cold temperatures, and skin problems.  This condition can be detected with a blood test and managed with medication.
  • Ear problems (hematoma, infection)*Your doxy’s long and floppy ears make him more prone to ear infections and hematomas than dog breeds with a smaller set of ears.  This is because bacteria and yeast grow best in warm and moist environments.
  • Anal gland problems. Infection, rupturing, blockage, and inflammation of the anal glands is common in small dogs including dachshunds.  Scooting, excessive licking of rear end, and a foul odor are all signs of anal gland problems.  Dachshunds with allergies are usually more likely to suffer from anal gland issues because of the inflammation, itchiness, and other skin problems that arise.
  • GDV (gastric dilation volvulus)GDV is an extremely dangerous health condition that dachshunds are prone to.  Dogs with GDV experience immense pain due to the extension and twisting of the stomach.  Learning the signs of gastric dilation volvulus in dogs is a good idea, as it may enable you to act quick and even save your dachshund’s life.
  • Hip dysplasia. Although hip dysplasia typically affects large breed dogs, dachshunds are an exception.  It is important that all dachshunds are tested with the OFA (orthopedic foundation for animals) before being bred, to minimize the chances of the puppies being born with the condition.
