Most people are aware of the responsibilities of pet ownership: lots of love, sweat, patience, tears, and of course, expendable income. If you are considering adding a new member to your family, and you are considering adopting a Dachshund, there are few things you should know before bringing home your new buddy.

The Dachshund breed in particular is more prone to intervertebral disk disease than any other breed of dog, and unfortunately most Dachshunds will develop some kind of back problems as they age, which is simply the result of their long backs. There are things you can do to prolong the health of your Dachsie's back:

  1. Keep your Dachsie at a healthy weight.
  2. Make sure your Dachsie gets plenty of regular exercise.
  3. Discourage your Dachsie from jumping on and off of furniture.

While Dachshunds make great family pets, they are prone to becoming aggressive and territorial if not properly disciplined and socialized. But, with the proper structure and discipline you just might find that owning one of these spunky, brave, and always a little insane dogs was the best decision you've ever made.
