The Dachshund is an affectionate and devoted family pet. However, they can be slightly difficult to train and housebreak. To prevent it from developing behavior problems, it needs a pack leader who will dominate the pack. If it fails to see an “Alpha” leader, it tends to suffer from separation anxiety, snapping, obsessive barking, and biting. They can also become extremely unpredictable and can become overprotective of certain objects and its territory. When living in apartments, a daily walk can greatly improve their temperaments.
