Do Dachshunds Ever Get Potty Trained?

Doxies are fantastic pets but training them can take some time.

Do Dachshunds ever get potty trained?

They should unless you want to have to wash the carpet every other day.

Dachshunds are notoriously stubborn when it comes to potty training but that doesn’t mean that you should skip that point. 

The alternative would be to train your dachshund to do its business indoors, in a specially designated area, usually on puppy pads in the bathroom.

How long can Dachshund puppies hold their pee?

Puppies can’t hold their pee for very long as they have pretty tiny bladders.

Depending on the age, you can expect to have to take your puppy out at least once every 2 or 3 hours to avoid getting a mess indoors. 

Why are Dachshunds hard to potty train?

Because they are a scent hound breed and all scent hounds are notoriously stubborn and willful.

This isn’t necessarily a “con” for the breed – scent hounds have been intentionally bred to have that temperament.

So, how long does it take to potty train a dachshund? Ideally, just two or three weeks – it all depends on your approach and persistence.
