My family and I recently adopted a stray standard dachshund, Adolphus. He just got fixed right before we adopted him. He is a good boy except he is in need of basic obedence. And he likes to "dominate" my daughter, Zoey. Adolphus will lay on Zoey, chew her toys when his are present, not let her play with him and his toys, and he has even snaped at her a couple of times when Zoey and I are palying and she is laughing. I need this "dominating" behavior to stop soon or I will be obligated to give him back to the pound.(Which I don't want to do, he has a heart condition so he will be put to sleep).
Laura, Zoey and Adolphus
If anyone can shed some light on this behavior it would be appreciated, even tips on basic obedence for such a stubborn breed.
