Dachshund Puppies Near Children and other
Smooth haired Dachshund Puppies are known to be good around children especially if they have grown up together. However just like any other breed any interaction between the kids and dog has to be supervised by an adult to make sure play time does not get too boisterous.
Generally they get on with other dogs and they rarely show any sort of aggressive behaviour towards them. However when it comes to smaller animals and pets care needs to be taken when a Dachshund comes into contact with them and this includes cats. With this said if they have grown up with a cat they are generally more tolerant of them.

Jumping up on furniture or running up and down stairs can cause damage to a growing Dachshund’s spine so must be avoided at all costs.
Things you’ll need for your Dachshund puppy
Getting the house ready for a new Dachshund puppy arrival is only part of the process because there are certain items which should be purchased well in advance and this includes the following:
- Food and water bowls making sure they are not too deep and ideally they should be ceramic rather than metal or plastic

- Child gates to fit on doors
- Dog specific toothpaste and tooth brush
- Grooming tools which includes shampoo specifically formulated for use on dogs
