A research with short clips of 37 pet dogs recorded by their owners in daily activities shows their 19 most common expressions to express what they want.
Dachshunds are dominating the Internet, you can watch these 10 puppies right away if you don’t believe!
The habit of using smartphones is making dachshunds “crazy” and harder to teach than ever.
This “love action” might hurt your dachshunds.
According to The Sun reports, researchers at Salford University (UK) have found “clear evidence” that our “four-legged friends” have been using four-leg gestures and body to “request” human to give them food or scratch their stomach.
The team found out the common point of 37 dachshunds in those selected videos, which are 19 gestures – including rolling or jumping up and down – carrying a clear message.
Scientists have shown that many times these dachshunds have asked their owners to open doors, express their will to be fed or hope their owners will give them some toys.
When a doxie dog upturns his head and show us his rounded watering eyes, he wants the owner to understand what he is looking for – usually is food!
There are some requests, for example, the demand for food is expressed by many different gestures – because sausage dogs are always interested in eating but there are other special gestures.
If the dog keeps lying on the floor, he may want you to scratch his belly.
If the dog grabs something in his mouth as if he has found it, it is telling you he wants you to play with it.
If the dog licks on his owner’s face it often means that he wants to scratch his belly.
When the dachshund stands on the hind legs, it usually means he wants to join the game with the owner.
When the dachshund rolls over and over, it is not a surprise if he wants his owner to scratch his belly.
When the four-legged friend raises his front legs, it means that he wants the owners to give him something (which they are holding) or wants them to get him a toy.

Animal Cognition published these findings, scientists think that when dachshunds pull the toys out in front of everyone to show that he is hungry.
Owners of sausage dogs believe that when dogs keep their feet on the floor means they want their owners to scratch their fur. Furthermore, when they bite toys or slightly bite into the owner’s hands shows that they want the owners to play with them.
In some cases, scientists find that the dachshunds will give the next different signal if the first signal they give to the owner has not achieved the desired success.
What is the dachshund trying to tell you?
Rolling – “Please tickle me!”
Biting toys – “I’m hungry!”
Putting his head down – “Give me toys!”
Jumping up – “I’m hungry!”
Touching things – “Give me this!”
Standing on his hid legs – “Please play with me!”
Rubbing his nose – “Scratch my hair!”
Licking – “Scratch my hair!”
Scratching his feet on the floor – “Scratch my hair!”
Putting his front legs onto something – “Open this thing!”
Rasing his hid legs – “Scratch my fur!”
Raising one leg and put on something – “Give me a toy!”
Rasing 2 front legs – “Give me a toy!”
Rubbing his head – “Give me a toy!”
Slightly biting – “Play with me!”
Turning his head – “Give me that!”
The most common gestures of dachshunds are “turning heads” – when they look at their owners and turn their heads to the object to show that they are interested in that. Not surprisingly, this gesture is very popular, and the object here is their food bowl.
Last year, researchers found that dachshunds raised their eyebrows in front of things which appeared to be exciting and could make their eyes bigger.
Experts from the University of Portsmouth (UK) also found that dogs create more movement on their faces when they are watched and observed by humans than when no one noticed them. They increase the frequency of gestures as a way to communicate with people.
It seems that people have been able to find out what their four-legged friend is trying to say when they bark and growl. If you want to refer to these 19 signs, please refer to the research results here.
