If your referring about sitting in a chair and starts shaking, get a blanket and let your dog hind under it. They will do that when they are excited but mainly when they are cold.

My mother has had many Dachsies that were female. But she also has had 1 male...Franklin. He always has shaked. Mom calls him a wuss. Becuz loud windy days, bacon frying, thunder. All cause him to come to one of us, give a "please protect me" glare, and whines till picked up. Once placed next to one of us in a chair and firmly sandwiched between leg and armrest. He lays his head down, and shakes like a Harley. We cover him up and pet him.Soon after that he slowly stops. So it's not a cold gesture. Cuz here in Phoenix AZ it doesn't cold much. But it is a nerves related reaction. If you put your dog close to you send make him feel safe. The shaking will stop. I suggest figuring out what noise is causing this. And maybe just be aware or find a way to make the noise stop. Worst case. Do nothing. Personally. I like the feeling of my own Mini close to or on top of me. Its like a long term hug.
