In This Chapter
Sometimes, despite your best efforts, you'll wonder who's training whom when you get to the end of a long day of Dachshund disobedience. Training a Dachshund is indeed a challenge, and it helps to keep reminding yourself who's the boss — as well as how to be the boss. Nobody ever said training a Dachshund was easy — but it certainly isn't impossible.
Your Dachshund won't mind being the boss, but he'd really prefer that you do the job — and believe me, your life will be a lot easier if you do. You don't want to spend your days subject to the capricious nature of this tiny tyrant. You must take charge, and this chapter shows you the reasons.

Getting a new puppy is a fun and interesting time. You probably went to a breeder or pet store or maybe just saw an ad on the Internet or the newspaper, for puppies, and decided just to check it out. Before you knew it those little eyes and fluffy puppy fur had your heart melting and you were headed home with him or her in your arms. If you are like most new pet owners you had visions of playing fetch with your dog, of watching him frolic at the lake, and of cuddling up on cold nights.
