    Hello all,

    I am new to this site but just wanted to ask a question.

    Does anyone have any experience with miniature dachshund puppies? We have just got ourselves two, one when he was ten weeks (got him 7 weeks ago now) and one when he was nine weeks (we've had him just over a week). One is red and the other is black and tan and they are absolutely gorgeous! Obviously as they are both males they are mouthing each other a lot and I do worry that they are going to continue this forever - does anyone know if it will stop? Angus (the older one) is a very submissive dog but he will go for Archie (gently though) and Archie likes to growl a lot when he's playing with Angus.

    Any ideas??

    Thanks!

    thy just playing and r pups , one of the most distinctive characteristics on dachs. is stubbornness .... break them apart if they get to boisterous and cheeky but other then that they behave like any other pup ...
    piccies plz plz plz and welcome on board

    It's lovely that they get on so well, lets hope it continues.

    Sounds like their having a great time playing with each other.
    I have 2 little crosses and the way they played when they were pups was quite frightening at first - lots of growls, pouncing and biting - but never any blood and if it got a bit much for one they'd soon warn the other off.
    Just supervise and enjoy.
    Always good to teach them tolisten to you and stop play if you ask.

    Aww, cute!! I have a mini daxie cross(and a chihuahua with only 2mths between them). They play very rough with each other. Siblings can really go for it and daxie ears are great for grabbing and hanging off, or so my other dogs believe!!:rolleyes:
    Hopefully if one is already submissive then you shouldnt have too many problems, just make sure that they are both enjoying the playfights.:)

    I have a youngster who gets to play with his brother and sister nearly every day, it sounds so violent sometimes but it's all good fun and part of how they learn to interact with other dogs I think. Mine is a star with other dogs and would never attempt to play with a strange dog like he does with his siblings. I'm sure it will stop eventually.... but they are now 18 months old!
