You might want to have her anal glands checked. It is common for them to back up and/or get infected. The tail chasing is common with dachshunds. If it gets excessive they consider it a sign of doggie OCD.

It is highly likely he has an infection or parasite in his rear end - irritating him so much that he tries to grab his tail - this would be distressing him so it is important to get him treated by a vet. A simple cream may fix this or an anal gland extraction , but frankly get him checked as it's obviously driving him crazy.
