Stop Dachshund Barking


Stop Dachshund Barking

The key to stop your Dachshund barking is learning what triggers the dog's barking and then changing those triggers. It may be a piece of furniture, or an intruder, or even your own dog as well as other dogs.

One of the most common problem is that the owner has a hard time understanding the dachshund's behavior and often ends up yelling and screaming at the dog to stop.  The dog is just going to bark and the owner does not have the training in patience and knowing what their dachshund is trying to communicate.

You need to realize that all dog's, especially dachshunds are going to bark (fact)as it is in their genetic makeup.   What you are trying to do is eliminate excessive barking and not trying to stop them from all barking.

An example is the doorbell or door knock.   Your dachshund is on guard so he will start barking when the doorbell rings or a knock on the door.  In my free ebook I will show you how to control your dachshund's barking when the doorbell rings or the door knocks.

Stop Dachshund Barking - For Dogs That Bark at Things

Dachshunds bark at things mainly because they are either scared or they want whatever it is to leave their home turf.   Or could be both.  

Your dachshund's barking is trying to make the thing get away, as they are intruding on their terriroty or they are scared of it.

Now that you know,  you will be able to change their emotional response, so they will stop the excessive barking.

Some dachshunds will bark when they are left alone as they get separation anxiety, as this is like a panic attack. 

However, not all dachshunds bark because they are having separation anxiety attacks.  Many times they are either bored or hear movements outside your house. 

 In my free ebook, you will learn how you can stop your Dachshund barking excessively and get them to calm down after they hear the door knock or doorbell ring.

You will learn what makes your dachshund bark, so you can now begin training to get him to stop barking for you. When you learn about their behavior, you will know what responses you need to train them.

You will get your Dachshund to stop barking uncontrollably in the yard or when other dogs walk by.  You will working to teach him that he has to listen to what you want him to do instead of how he wants to do it. This can be a very successful method.

About the Author

I have owned dachshunds for the past 15 years and have been part of my family and my life. I had my first dachshund develop a back issue, but by giving him natural joint supplements he was able to be pain free the rest of his life. He lived to be 17 years old. My goal is to show others what information I learned throughout the years for providing the best healthy dog food, supplements, and treats. ​ I continue to learn from other dog breeders, vets, and scientific research to help your dachshunds live a long and healthy life.
