While your puppy was with his mother and littermates, he was learning valuable lessons. A dachshund mom is very effective in teaching her pups that biting hurts, and she won't allow it. Littermates play together and teach each other the skills needed to get along with other dogs. As soon as you take your puppy away from this environment, all these helpful influences are gone, and the responsibility of continuing your puppy's socialization skills falls on you.
