My favorite breed of dog in the world is the Dachshund. God definitely showed a sense of humor when making that breed.
In spite of the Dachshund being an extremely stubborn breed, I have found that that stubbornness (transitioned into persistence) can be a plus once they have learned the rule. For instance, if potty time is every 2 hours, then once that roaring bark or jingle sound is at your back door, DON'T IGNORE IT! You have to attend to it. If feeding time is at 6 a.m. and 5 p.m., DON'T IGNORE the grumblings and howl-barks that are reminiscent of Wild Kingdom! Remember...they were trained to that schedule! If bedtime is set for them and they can't get to their bed to put themselves in for the night, then DON'T IGNORE the tugging at your hand, sleeve, ankle or pant leg or the "scared-cornered-feral cat" sounds that are produced. They were trained to that!
