I have a dachshund that’s 3 years old that loves to run she will run after the ball for hours keep it up doesn’t want to stop when I take the ball away she gets mad but she listens. My question is it bad for her to run so much her weight is 4.7 pounds she eats over a cup a day . I had a few dachshunds’ before they never really liked running so kind of new to this.

Exercise is good. And 4.7 pounds is a good weight. If your Dachshund is 14.7 pounds the exercise is going to keep her healthy. My puppy at 12 weeks is 4 pounds. I would just keep an eye on her and if she starts limping or having a sore back I would limit or remove the running. Just keep an eye on her and if she isnt having any issues i would say its fine.
