The Bo-Dach dog with its lively and affectionate nature is an extremely lovable family pet. It is truly a great companion as it bonds closely with its owner and pleases people of all ages with its appealing expression as well as amusing behaviors. Being an intelligent dog with a playful spirit, a Dachshund-Boston Terrier mix is expected to exhibit some mischief. While the Bo-Dach typically is even-tempered, it may show signs of aggression around other dogs if it feels that its territory is being trespassed. It can be suspicious of unfamiliar people by nature and is always watchful of anything that is out of the ordinary.
Your smart little Bo-Dach dog can learn quickly, but it needs short and motivational training sessions. Do not repeat the same set of instructions or make your pet overdo the same exercises, as this will induce boredom.
Canned foods have high amounts of protein, but few fillers and preservatives. On the other hand, dry kibbles are good for your dog since they satisfy its urge to chew. Therefore, you can provide a healthy mix of wet and dry foods, which offer the right nutritional balance. The Bo-Dach needs 3/4-1.5 cups of dry kibble on a regular basis.
