About Jane

Barking: She barks when you leave and the garage door opens.
Breed: 11 month old - 1 year old Dachshund, Miniature Smooth Haired/Mix
Car: She is getting use to riding in the car. For now she needs someone to hold her or a car seat. She will

to help slow her down, because she gobbles her food down in seconds. Protective of her food. High food
motivated which will make her easy to train.
