A nervous and anxious dog can be challenging to own. They are often very sensitive, stressed, or even shut down if the owner does not understand their fear. When a pet develops this kind of emotional behavior, they may become fearful of anything new in their environment, making it difficult to train. Every time an individual walks through the door or sits on the couch where your pet usually lies down. He becomes anxious and aggressive out of his fear that you will leave him again. Thus placing much strain, this places on both human-animal relationships. Why? Because it forces owners to limit what they do around their pets for safety reasons. Here are tips to help your nervous and anxious dog:
Most dogs are playful and active; they simply can’t help but chase after pretty much anything that moves, be it a small insect, a bus, or another dog. These chases, however, sometimes take them through tall grass, and they tend to get attacked by ticks as much as humans do, if not even more frequently.

Dachshunds are cute, loyal, loving and highly intelligent - but they can also be quite vocal! As a professional dog trainer, the #1 request Dachshund owners come to me with is to stop the incessant barking habits their dogs have. Once this behavior gets ingrained, it takes consistency and the right approach to teach your dog to quiet down. Today I will share my best tips for addressing excessive barking, so that you can get your Dachshund to stay calm.
Just like any other dog breed, Dachshunds are more prone to certain health issues and less prone to others. Some things are less preventable due to genetics, while others can be prevented (or at least reduced) with proper diet and lifestyle.
Educating yourself about how to recognise these health issues early can greatly improve your Dachshund’s prognosis and quality of life. And, even more importantly, being more aware will also equip you with the knowledge you need to help prevent these health issues or at least keep symptoms to a minimum.
