How do you get your dachshund to eat his puppy food?
It depends on how old you puppy is. If he is a newborn, you shouldn't be feeding him puppy food right away. If your puppy is a little older, I would begin by soaking it in lukewarm water. This will make it softer and easier to chew. If your Dachshund is older an should be at the hard kibble stage, I suggest putting treats or gravy in - this will tempt him to eat it.

How do you introduce a new puppy to an older dog?
Most older dogs are tired and worn out and sleep a great deal. If it's a female it is more than likely of a mothering nature or at least will put up with the puppies antics. Put your old dog on a leash first, then let the puppy explore the same room you are in and hold the leash tight on your older dog just in case. Praise the older dog and tell them what a great dog they are. Remember the PECKING ORDER! Your older dog comes first and you must be sure that the first attention when you come into the house is for your older dog, then the puppy. The older dog should be fed first. If one gets a treat it should be the older dog, then the pup. Love and cuddle the older dog and then the pup. Pet the puppy then rub the scent on the older dog. If you have a breed of older dog such as a Pitt Bull, Bull Mastiff or other types of dogs that have habits you may not be able to trust separate the puppy from the older dog. I had a Cairn Terrier that was 10 years old and brought in a puppy because she missed our other dog (who was almost 20 years old and we had to put her to sleep.) The female Cairn Daisy was so distressed we bought a puppy. Daisy was wonderful with the pup and mothered it. Be sure because your dog is much older that you don't let the pup antagonize the older dog too much. Things will work out, but keep a keen eye out re the pup as the puppy doesn't know it's boundaries yet.
