Dachshunds are life-long learners and carrying your training beyond basic obedience is important to keep your pup engaged and entertained while strengthening your relationship. Advanced tricks like shaking, begging, rolling over, or bowing are fun and challenging tasks your dog will enjoy learning. The best part will be showing off new tricks to friends and family who may not expect your cute little buddy to be so skilled.
Another important factor to consider when training your pup is that his long back and little legs that make him so cute also make him more susceptible to injury. Be gentle with your dog and thoughtful about the tricks you try to teach. Choose tasks that don't put too much pressure on his back or hips and never force him into a specific position. Your Dachshund is capable of learning dozens of tricks, so don't be afraid to be picky with your training.
Below you'll find three advanced tricks to try teaching your Dachshund. Read through them and try one or all three. With some consistency, your dog will be performing these new tricks in a few short weeks.
