Finally after years of wanted a dog I am finally gonna get one in the second week of August. Its a mini dachshund from an animal shelter. I will be the dogs main care taker and I know the big responsibility in owning a dog. Any tips to make it easier. Thanks :)

Thanks guys haha I know not to get mad at it because it doesn't really know. But this dog is in the process of being "potty" trained. What is your guys opinion in where the dog sleeps. Obvisouly when we brin it home for the first few days its gonna be scared. I don't want it to sleep in someones bed because i knwo that dogs can get very territorial about that. i was thinking maybe at the foot of my bed or next to my bed in a cadge with a doggie bed in it

I just got a yellow lab. But take her out after she eats every single time, when she comes out of her crate/cage thing/where ever she sleeps take her out. It helps to avoid accidents if you take her out before she is about to shit on the floor.

i have a chocolate lab and hes a great dog, but make sure you train them when theyre young, i only trained him to go to the bathroom and hes great in terms of that but hell eat anything he finds and when you call him he completely ignores you so i recommend training your dog to just obey you and do basic things.

take your dog out about every 10 minutes and then work your way up to longer periods of time. What i did for my dog was that i would leave her out on my deck for extended periods of time so that way the mess could be taken care of easily. My house is right next to a steep decent into a river so i could not let her go walk around on my yard.

Walk the dog. Spend time with the dog aside from walking. Get a few small toys and a little bag of treats. The treats make training a little easier because they soon realize when they do something good they get a treat. I taught my dog to sit like this > Sitting in 2 weeks.

Don't hit it on the head with a hard object. Let it sleep in your bead with it.

Is it a puppy or an Adult dog you're getting from the shelter?

Puppy's can just be treated as normal, but with the fully grown dogs that have been abandoned, you need to give them as much love as possible, and just make sure they know you won't do the same. Abused dogs dont have much trust with people most of the time, so just go with the flow for a little while until the dog gets used to you :)

If it is a puppy, get ready for your house to smell like crap for the next couple months :lol:

it seems like the more you take a dog outside for nice long walks, the friendlier it is.

I own a Daschund, He is very close to the family, he only likes us or other people he knows REALLY! well. So i advice you to train your dog to respect people. My dog is an ass and he bit my friends lip. Was a bad cut but i understand he invaded his space. But i look back and my parents treated him to softly. So train the little pup and make him understand respect. Take the time trust me he will love everyone and youll be happy with you dog. Other than that love it and have fun with it. Mine loves to play outside. When he goes out in the backyard he gets a old tuque i gave him and runs for the longest time lol.

Hang a bell by the bottom of the door to get out side. Every time you take him (or her) out, ring the bell. Eventually (s)he will learn to ring the bell when (s)he wants to go out. Your friends will then be impressed with how smart your dog is. It worked with my Lab and then later with my Olde English Bulldog.
