Dachshunds are adorable, intelligent, and independent dogs, but sometimes, their owners can’t help but hover over them like helicopters. If you find yourself constantly fussing over your dachshund’s every move, you might just be a helicopter parent. Here are 14 signs to watch out for:
1. You Have a Dachshund Camera Feed
You’ve set up a camera feed to monitor your dachshund’s every move while you’re away, just in case they need you.
2. You Panic at Every Sneeze
The slightest sneeze or cough sends you into a frenzy, convinced that your dachshund is coming down with something serious.
3. You Carry Them Everywhere
Your dachshund has four legs, but you still find yourself carrying them around like a baby, especially when they give you those puppy-dog eyes.
4. You Have a Closet Full of Outfits
Your dachshund’s wardrobe rivals your own, complete with sweaters, jackets, and even matching accessories.
5. You Insist on Organic, Handmade Treats
You only feed your dachshund the finest, organic, handmade treats, because anything less just won’t do.
6. You’ve Installed a Doggy Seatbelt
Safety first! You’ve installed a doggy seatbelt in the car to keep your dachshund secure during road trips.
7. You Schedule Playdates with Other Dachshunds
Your dachshund’s social calendar is busier than your own, filled with playdates with other dachshunds in the neighborhood.
