Hi there! I have a mini daschund. I got her when she was a year and half. She came from the country and lived with other daschunds.she had no training at all when i got her. She is fully crate trained now and house trained now. She’s a wonderful dog but still having a few issues. She does not like some men but is okay with others and is constantly at my side all the time ( she has been like this since i got her). If I get up she follows and if my husband near our bathroom and hes there she runs the other way. But if anyone has any advice they can offer me that would help me. Thanks.

I’m not really sure what you’re asking. Do you want him to be less attached to you or be more friendly with men like your husband?

It will definitely take time. I had a dog like this at one point too. My advice for at home is make your husband the good guy. Have him feed her, give her treats,ect. Help her see that he gives her good things. During this time though you have to not be the one doing these things. If she knows she can get these ‘good things’ from you she will just come to you. Obviously once she gets more comfortable you can share those rsponsibilitues, but at this point this is what my advice would be. I hope she gets more comfortable soon!

LauraR: yes I want her to be less attached , and more comfortable with my hudband. I want her to be more comfortable in our home. She has made a lot of progress already and I know it will take a lot of time to do.

DiamondnLovey: Rescues can take awhile to become “normal”. None of my dogs are “normal” and I have just learned to accept that. I don’t know what you do at home, but if you need the dog to be less attached to you and moreso to your husband have him feed her all her meals, take her for the walks, play with her, give her all the treats. I’ll bet she’ll come around, she’s a rescue and they have backgrounds. We have a small dog that is more attached to hubby. He HAS to sit in hubby’s lap. He HAS to sleep squished up next to hubby every.single.night. I’m just thankful it’s not me, I couldn’t sleep like that lol! Hopefully your husband is being patient. Some people don’t understand a dog that isn’t super waggy tailed and running up to them for attention.

RedHeadKel: I feed both my dogs and walk them as well as im home most of the day. My husband works full time in a kitchen and then watches our daughter while I work the evenings.he only gets Mondays and every other Tuesday off. So I will have to get him to feed her and give her treats or just accept her as she is.
