I do feel this topic is a little overlooked with Dachshund owners. I hear many of them discuss how to not let their dogs go up and downstairs, jumping on and off furniture, but not too much attention on how to hold their Dachshund.
Due to their long spines, it is important that you do not hold them from the centre of their spine but instead support from their chest and rear.
If you are holding them with one arm, you must support their chest with your hand as well as their rear between your elbow and side of your chest.
Some people may not be able to hold them like this due to strength or length of arm.
If this is the case, it’s best to hold your Dachshund in front of you with two arms. As before, supporting their entire body is important and not let their rear hang.
