In the pictures you can see both sausage dogs running around the house. They are stopped in their path by a barrier. The person filming will open it and ask the Dachshunds if they are ready to take a bath. No hesitation possible regarding the answer: Vienna and Merida rushes up the stairs. They are in such a hurry that their mistress struggles to follow them!
When the dogs pass the bathroom, they immediately try to jump into the water, not without difficulty for one of them. But the “short on legs” ends up joining his sidekick in the water, with a little push.
Here is the adorable video:
Internet users reacted by commenting and some wondered how alejandra554 made bathing so easy for his female dogs. This last response in a comment: when I gave them their first bath, the water was at their knees. For the first baths, I give them kibble in the water while praising them. Nothing motivates a dachshund more than dinnertime. Slowly I would raise the water level. Also, I’m sure the house and the water were a little warm. I think it’s the cold they’d hate the most “.
females Dachshunds were therefore gradually accustomed to going in the water, always being praised and rewarded.
Always in the water
Some people have worried about the health of the back of Vienna and Meridawho as we see in the video, jump to enter the rather high bathtub. alejandra554 reassured the most worried by writing that in normal times, she carried her female dogs up the stairs and to put them in the water.
She adds a few years later that the family has moved and the Dachshundsnow 9 years old, still love baths and swimming.
