10 Things Dachshunds Steal WHEN YOU ARE NOT HOME

Written by touatihabib22

Dachshunds are a comedic breed, and that’s one of the things we love most about them. They like to steal things – mostly in secret – and they’re good at it too! So here are the Top 10 Things Dachshunds Steal:

Even though this article is just meant as a bit of fun, there’s a serious side too. Be careful what your dachshund steals because he could seriously harm himself. I’m a dachshund owner of 10+ years, not a vet, qualified dog trainer or dog behaviourist.

1. Socks

Washing machines aren’t the only things that eat socks – dachshunds pinch them too! In fact, they’re chief sock stealers! Leave a sock on the floor and it’ll be gone in a matter of seconds. So, if you’re searching for a missing sock, the culprit could be closer than you think! Dachshunds will steal your socks! 😂

2. Food

Dachshunds are master food stealers that move at lightening fast speed! They’ll be ready to pounce from their favourite position under the dinner table. Any food that hits the floor will be swallowed before you have time to get to it. Given half a chance, dachshunds will steal your food – so keep that fridge door shut! 🙈

3. Sofa

Dachshunds will steal the best seat on the sofa! They love being cosied up under warm blankets right beside all the family. No more lounging and stretching your legs out. You’ll be perched on the edge of your seat trying your best not to move. Dachshunds may steal the best seat in the house, but you’ll be more than happy to let them! 🤗

4. Bed

Dachshunds will make their way into your bed within two days of being brought home. Forget 8 hours sleep a night. From now on, you’ll have a hot dog attached to your back and be woken by a dachshund licking your face! Not only will they steal your bed, but they’ll pinch all the bed covers too! 🙄

5. Underwear

Dachshunds love being with people so, if they’re not around, you know they’re up to something! 😂 Secret pant chewing is one of their favourite hobbies. If you leave dirty laundry on the floor, they’ll run off with it and hide. It won’t take a detective to work out what happened to the chewed up, soggy pants! Dachshunds will steal your underwear the minute you’re not looking! 😳

6. Handkerchiefs

Dachshunds steal dirty hankies and stinky socks because they like chewing on soft textures. To them, it’s a bit like munching on the fur or skin of their prey. They hide hankies in their bed and look at you with a face that says ‘it wasn’t me!’ 😆

7. Toilet roll

It’s not just the Dulux dog that runs off with the toilet roll – dachshunds do it too! They love the fun of thieving and turning it into a game. So, if you find loo roll strewn across the floor, you’ll know who’s to blame! Dachshunds will steal your toilet roll – and then pretend they didn’t! 🤣

8. Bottles

Watch out! Dachshunds will steal your water bottles. Plastic, crunchy, noisy and fun, they’ll pinch your bottle as soon as you’ve taken your last sip! It helps with the recycling, but does need to be stopped. Bottles are not dog toys and could hurt their teeth or cut into their gums!

9. Attention

Dachshunds love being the centre of attention. They want to be on your lap for a cuddle, and to follow you around like a shadow. Anywhere you go, they go! If you don’t give them the attention they want, they’ll be sure to let you know! Dachshunds are comedic clowns that use all their tricks to steal your attention. 🤗

10. Hearts

Dachshunds will steal your heart in a heartbeat. They’re the most loyal and loving breed. They’re funny, sweet, playful, smart dogs with so many adorable traits. Once you’ve had one, you’ll fall in love with the breed for life. Dachshunds will steal your heart forever! ❤️
