Perhaps you are trying to hard for your new dachshund to like you....we can some times give off body language which a dog may feel threatened by...
-Try to get down to his level
-hold out your hand for him to sniff (have your hand fisted with palm down)
-do not try to pat the dogs head...always bring hand up from under the dog not down onto the dog...this can be a very threatening gesture to a new dog
-try turning your head slightly to the side so you are exposing your check to him...this is thought to be a calming signal

some body language that is meant to say, "look, I am not a threat to you." Some typical signs you may see include:

Sniffing the ground: This is thought to be a signal from a fearful dog to calm another creature (human or animal) that may frighten him.

Turning the head, head held to the side, or eyes flicking to the side for just an instant.
Your dog may even do this when a child runs up to give him a hug!
Sometimes, this takes place in such a short time you may not catch it.
You can use this signal to greet a new dog that may be fearful by coming up to the dog at an angle, or by looking away.


Remember to let children know never to approach a strange dog by staring at him. This indicates aggression in dog language. Better yet, never let a child approach any unknown dog without immediate adult supervision.


Licking his own nose: Quick or slow, this also is thought to be a signal to calm strangers. Interestingly, black dogs use this signal more often than other dogs. This may be because their features are more difficult to see and a pink tongue stands out.

Licking your face or another dog's face, although a typical canine greeting, may or may not also be a calming signal.

Yawning: This is a common stress signal. We have noticed this in dogs during obedience training when their owners are expecting a lot of them, at dog shows, at the veterinarian, or when their owners are disciplining them.

Try communicating with your dog in his own language. He may look at you strangely, but it may just work.

Make yourselv interesting. Play with things that dogs like, make gentle noises etc and the dog will pay attention to you. That helps!
