Technically speaking, the answer is yes. You can leave your dachshund alone at home all day.
However, it will not be easy for you or the little pooch.
These doggies are not particularly independent. They require a lot of attention which makes leaving them alone brutal for the little love bugs.
When dachshunds are left alone all day without proper training, they tend to get into a lot of mischief and trouble. From peeing everywhere to whining all day, you will have a lot to deal with when you come back home.
Fortunately, there is a lot you can do to make things easier for them and by extension for yourself. Here are a few ideas.
Get them some company
It could be a pet sitter, another dog or any other dog in general. Much as it is not the same as hanging out with their beloved human, it is better than being all alone.
Leave them with enough food and water
Dachshunds love to eat. Without enough food, water and treats, their time alone will be harder for them than it needs to be. So find ways to ensure they are satisfied all day until you return.
Get them some toys
Doxies love to stay active. So if you want their time alone to be bearable then invest in engaging toys to keep them busy.
Spend time with the dog before leaving
A little extra cuddle in the morning before you leave will do wonders for the pooch. It lets them know that they are cared for which is perfect for the sensitive little buddies.
