Signs Your Dachshund Is Bored
Many years ago when my kids and doxies were little, I thought it would be awesome to be able to work from home. I didn’t want to miss out on their precious years while they were still young.
Now that my family and I are all stuck at home for a while, it is getting harder to wait for this virus quarantine to be over. Not only are the kids at each other’s throats, our dachshunds are also acting out.
Here are some clear signs that your dachshund is bored:
When I sit at my computer, little doxie, Eko, will paw at my feet and let out a small “woof.” This isn’t a behavior that necessarily needs to be stopped. He is asking for my attention, so that’s reasonable.
Well, one day while I was working at the computer, Eko’s adorable attention seeking request turned into a spiteful mess making tantrum. I turned around to find Eko spreading bits of paper everywhere, right in front of me.
He had gotten up on a table, grabbed an envelope filled with papers (my son’s homemade paper puzzle), and spread them all over the floor. Here is the video of my Bored Puppy (from our YouTube Channel).
Although this video is cute, Eko was being very clear that he was bored and needed more attention.
