Our older male dachshund has a problem with his bowels. If he gets excited or is even sleeping he just starts pooping. He is a active dog still so we want him to continue having a healthy life with the children. Is this a common problem in dachshunds? Any suggestions?

Hi JaCustomer,

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is Jane. I have been involved professionally with dogs in the healthcare and behavioral fields for over 20 years. I’ve worked as a Vet Assistant and Behaviorist and have extensive experience in dog reproduction, as a breeder, for even longer than that.. Canine behavioral issues and training are also my specialties. It will be my pleasure to work with you today. I'm so sorry that no other expert answered your question earlier. Your question just showed up on the list of unanswered questions that I have access to and I wanted to help. I hope you will rate my answer rather than the delay.

Do you still need help with this situation?

If so, It is necessary for me to get a little information from you before I can type up your reply. Your patience is appreciated.

How old is your dachshund?

Has he had anal gland problems in the past?

How do the family members pick him up?

Does he avoid stairs or jumping at all?
