We have a mini Dachshund and she will not listen We live VERY close to the road and my sis accidentally let go and she just about got hit we were calling pretty loud Come here but she just keeps on going ad she will go after anything. even a leaf. she will slip out the door and we will call her she`ll look at us and keep on going. What can I do to get her to listen Dachshund luvr
well now that you know she'll run off on you, make sure that everyone knows she needs watching. If you need to, put a leash on her every time someone is planning on going in and out. Start puppy classes with her, and start working right now with her on 'sit', 'stay' and 'come'. Practice all of them on her for 15 or 20 minutes a few times a day, always with the leash on. Take her out to the park, to Petsmart, to a neighbor's house, etc and work on the commands everywhere wtih her on the leash. You want her to learn that the commands are for being followed everywhere, not just at home.
have you ever taught her what the word come means? i saw in your other post she had no formal trainig with her previous owner so unless you have been doing obedience with her , ie: taking her to obedience classes, how would she know what the word means. at this point since you have been using the word come and not enforcing it you should choose another word such as " here" to use. she already knows she doesn't have to return to you when you use the word come so it may be harder to train her wiht that word.
Dachshunds are typically stubborn. I would put your dof on a long lead and make it come to you everytime you call it do this a many times (daily) for a month. I would be as causious as possible considering you have a breed not known to listen too well.
