Playing with a mini Dachshund. After lots of exercise he’ll enjoy is dog bed!

mini-dachshundA miniature Dachshund may be small but he has plenty of energy. Along with long walks, you can help train his energy with some lively games. There’s nothing more enjoyable for your mini dog than playing fetch. Retrieving balls and squeaky toys is his idea of nirvana. It is also a good opportunity for you to teach him the command “drop it.”  He also likes to play “tug” but make sure it’s not too rough and you are the one who starts and ends the game.  Playing hide and seek with him is also fun as long as he already knows how to sit.  Try teaching him a few new tricks like “hi five” or “take a bow.”  If you take the time to play with your mini Dachshund, he will have a fit mind and body. It will also keep him more relaxed and happier. He will really enjoy sleeping in his dog bed at the end of a long day of play!
