Dachshunds are playful, fun dogs, known for their propensity
to chase small animals, birds and tennis balls with great determination

them a challenge to train. Dachshunds may dig holes in the garden.
They have a particularly loud bark, making dachshunds good watchdogs.

many dachshunds will whine until they have companionship. Some dachshunds
are prone to separation anxiety and may chew objects in the house
to relieve stress.
