Acquired: Breeder (professional)
Posted March 7, 2015
I started to deal with Lica when I met my boyfriend (actually he’s her owner). She was 2 years old and was never trained. My boyfriend’s family bought Lica from a professional breeder practically when she had just born (her mother abandoned puppies), so she demanded a lot of attention and extra care, what turned she into a very lacking and jealous dog. My fist contact with Lica was failed (she tried to bit me), but now she loves me as a sister, hahaha. As a needy dog, she's a very amorous and companion dog, but she’s also a very scared and defensive dog, so she isn’t good to deal with other animals or unknown people.
I already met dogs of the same breed that have a completely different behavior especially when it was trained, because the dachshund/teckel are very intelligent and quick to learn. I think Lica is a case apart because their former owners (my in-laws) don’t gave her the attention she needed, so now it’s very difficult to change her behavior.
So, in short, daschund are a very sagacious dog, but it may need some training because they learn very fast, both goods things and bad things.
