1. Getting On The Furniture
Jumping is one of the biggest causes of back injuries in dachshunds and a lot of doxies get injured jumping down from the couch or bed. Of course, they like to be on the furniture with their humans, but when it's time to get down, that's when things get dangerous.
When you think about it, most couches are 3-4 times a dachshund's height which makes it a pretty big distance to jump (can you imagine jumping down from something 3 times your height?) and as much as our daredevil dachshunds may seem ready to take on the challenge, it's our job as their guardians to teach them this is a no-no.
