So you have seen those adorable Sausage Dogs invading our TV screens recently – seems everywhere you look you see these funny little chaps trotting about. Don’t be deceived into believing that these cute little Sausages are going to be an easy addition to family life. By their very nature dachshunds are stubborn and tenacious, incredibly loyal and loving, but they know their own mind. Training them is, in my experience, very much on their own terms! In all honesty you don’t own a dachshund, a dachshund owns you…

  1. This is so cute! I don’t have any dogs now but grew up with several in my parent’s house. And your list is so true. Especially about them wanting to sit wherever you are. Now that I think of it my cat was always the same way. Made it very hard to work on the computer. Thanks for sharing! #TribalLove

  2. I love this! Strangely it very much reminds me of my little girl, as she feels very put out when we have visitors haha. I chuckled along to not having to go for the walk if they don’t want to…gorgeous dogs, I want one ๐Ÿ™‚ #triballove

  3. As mom to a chocolate dapple smooth (short-haired), I can attest to truth of these rules. Every one of these could have been written by my dachshund, Trinket.

  4. I wish my pet refused to wake up before 7am! I have a cat who thinks 5:30 is an acceptable wake-up time, and he goes around the bedroom stepping on my face and knocking things over. Even the baby isn’t up that early! #bigpinklink

  5. Oh being a fellow daschund owner I can agree with so many of these – aren’t they one of a kind? So stubborn. And they have to sit on your lap at all times and main if I remotely move an inch! Such a fab post to read #BigPinkLink

  6. Hehe, this is brilliant!! I’ve never owned a dog, and these do sound particularly headstrong!! Does the dog really pee on unwanted visitors shoes??!! So cute though-looks are deceiving!! It’s nice that the dog at least would give you a lay in, even if the children don’t!! It does sound slightly like having an extra toddler in the house… But a gorgeous and super loved member of the family I’m sure!!

  7. We just recently adopted a rescue dog – his mom was a Pekinese Pug and His Dad was a Miniature Dachsund! You have described him to a tee! We love him dearly and he has stolen our hearts and rules our roost, for certain! What a joy! #bigpinklink

  8. Brilliant. Except in our case I would amend No.8 to:
    I get up when I want, That’s 5am if I need to pee, then 6am if my tummy is rumbling. If you feed me a nice breakfast, I will come back to bed for cuddles so you can get a bit more sleep.
