Facts - Overview

The Dachshund is one of the most popular dog breeds in the US, consistently landing among the top ten in American Kennel Club rankings. This should not be surprising since the Dachshund is one of the best dogs for city residents. His small stature makes him the ideal pet for those who live in smaller spaces such as apartments. This page provides an overview of the basic Dachshund breed info that you need to know before deciding if the breed is the best one for your family.

The Dachshund dog breed actually comes in a variety of sizes and coat types. The most popular variety of Dachshund is those who have smooth coats since they require minimal grooming, although there are also longhaired and wirehaired Dachshunds. They also come in miniature (weighing eleven pounds or less when fully grown) or standard (weighing between sixteen to thirty-six pounds as an adult), with those who fall in between these two weight classes (11 pounds to 16 pounds) known as ‘tweenies’.

Dachshunds also come in an assortment of colors with the most common ones being tan, cream and red as well as color combinations like black and cream and chocolate and tan. In addition, Dachshund coats can also come in a variety of patterns including piebald, dapple, sable and brindle.

One of the more notable aspects of the Dachshund is its intelligent eyes, and his facial expressions are considered some of the most complex among dog breeds. He also has a surprisingly big bark for a dog his size due to his barrel-like chest. But what endears him most to dog lovers is his lively and clever personality, which emerges during playtime. However, their independent nature can make them a little difficult to train so patience and consistency is necessary.

Socialization is also important for Dachshunds since they have a tendency to bond with only one person, making them potentially snappy with others. In addition, it is important that you not feed your Dachshund too much since he can easily become fat, which would put stress on his fragile back. You also need to support his back when you are holding him. 


Facts - Personality

The Dachshund personality is one of the things that most endears him to many people. Generally, the Dachshund is brave and lively, while having an independent streak that can make him a little difficult to train. However, he more than makes up for any perceived shortcomings by being affectionate, since he loves nothing more than to cuddle with his favorite family member.

There are also some slight differences in personality among the differently-coated Dachshunds. The wirehaired Dachshund can be mischievous, reflecting the terrier in his ancestry, while the long-haired variety is quiet and calm. The smooth-haired Dachshund has a personality that falls in between these two types. But you should keep in mind that it is not normal for the breed to be shy or nervous and you should not get puppies that display these characteristics.

However, these are just general guidelines and the actual Dachshund temperament can be affected by a lot of factors. If you would like to get an idea of what your dog’s personality would be like, when you meet with a breeder you are interested in getting a puppy from, ask to see one or both of the parents of the litter. This would give you an idea of the temperament of the puppies. Of course, temperament is also affected by factors like heredity, early socialization and training. When choosing a puppy from a litter, pick the one whose temperament falls in between the two extremes – not too timid and not too aggressive. A nice temperament for a puppy to have is one who approaches people readily and is not afraid to be held, and is playful and curious.


Facts - Care

One of the basic tenets of Dachshund care is that you should ensure that your dog gets enough physical activity. While the Dachshund is essentially an indoor dog, he still needs his daily exercise. You should walk him twice a day, around ten minutes per walk or approximately a half-mile. However, if you cannot spare the time, you can play a short game of fetch.

Another important part of basic Dachshund puppy care is ensuring that his back does not get injured. His long back makes him susceptible to spinal injuries that can leave him partially or fully paralyzed. Instead of letting him jump up and down furniture, install steps or a ramp and teach him how to use them. Also, when you are holding him, make sure to support his rump and chest.

Dachshund training can be a bit challenging due to his sometimes stubborn nature which results from his intelligence. He may feel that he knows better than you! But if you are patient, engage his attention and keep the training sessions at a reasonable length, you will be successful. Make training sessions varied and fun so your Dachshund won’t get bored. Crate training your Dachshund puppy may help as long as you don’t turn the crate into a cage and confine the puppy in there all day long.


Facts - Grooming

Dachshund grooming does not take a long time since the breed is a low-maintenance one, particularly the smooth-haired variety. Simply give him a bath when he needs it and wipe him down with a damp cloth in between to keep him clean. When the weather turns cold, however, you may need to provide him with a sweater since his coat is too short to keep him warm. However, this does not apply to the longer-haired varieties, since the wire-haired and long-haired varieties need to be brushed regularly. In addition, the wirehairs need to be ‘stripped’ twice or thrice a year while the long-haired Dachshund need to be bathed more frequently and blow-dried afterward.

Smooth Dachshunds have coats that can be one or two colors. The single-colored Dachshund has a cream or red coat while those that have two colors are generally chocolate, fawn, blue and grizzled with cream or tan marking. The wire-haired Dachshund has a two-tiered coat, with a topcoat of hard, thick hair over a softer undercoat. While the wirehair’s coat has the same colors as the smooth-haired Dachshund, they generally have a grizzled (wild boar) coat.

Knowing how to groom Dachshund is important to keep him looking at his best. Apart from taking care of his coat, another important part of your Dachshund’s regular grooming routine is oral and nail care. You should get your puppy used to getting his teeth brushed as early as possible, then brush him daily or at least twice or thrice a week for good oral health. You should also start cutting his nails when he is young and trim them two to three times a month. If you hear your puppy’s nails clicking on the floor as he walks, then they’re too long.

While you are grooming your dog, you can take the opportunity to examine him for signs of disease such as rashes, sores and signs of infection like skin inflammation, redness and tenderness. One particular area you should pay attention to is his droopy ears, which are prone to infection from bacteria and fungus. Keep his ears clean by moistening a cotton ball with an ear cleaner solution prescribed by your vet and wiping them out. Do this weekly and don’t put the cotton ball into the ear too deeply.


Facts - Health

To ensure good Dachshund nutrition, feed your puppy with a high-quality puppy food that is formulated to meet his nutritional requirements. You can ask your breeder about what type of food he was feeding the puppy and then continue giving him this. If you want to shift to another kind of food later, you should gradually make the shift by slowly reducing the amount of the old food and increasing that of the new food. This will help avoid intestinal problems caused by too-abrupt shifts in his food.

There are a number of Dachshund health problems that the breed is prone to. The most common of these are back problems like Intervertebral Disc Disease. The common signs of back problems include paralysis, being unable to lift himself up on his hind legs and occasionally loss of bladder and bowel control. You can help avoid these health issues by always supporting your Dachshund’s lower back and chest when you are carrying him as well as ensuring that he does not jump off or on furniture by providing aids such as stairs or ramps. You can also prevent back problems by consulting with rehabilitation specialists who work with dogs or chiropractors as well as consulting with your vet or breeder as to other preventive measures that you can take to ensure that your Dachshund stays healthy.


Facts - History

The history of Dachshund begins in Germany, where his name is derived from the German words “dachs” (badger) and “hund” (dog). Dogs resembling Dachshunds can be seen in pictures dating back to the fifteenth century where they were used to hunt not only badger but also other den animals like foxes. The breed was refined in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by foresters who wanted a brave dog with a body that could dig into badger burrows to root them out and even fight them to the death if needed. The smooth-haired Dachshund was the first to be developed, followed by the long-coated varieties through cross-breeding with spaniels and wire-haired ones through interbreeding with terriers.

By the nineteenth century, Dachshunds started being popular as pets, particularly in Great Britain where the breed was a favorite of royalty. To make them more appealing as pet dogs, the miniature Dachshund was bred. The breed standard was developed in 1879 and in 1888 the German Dachshund Club was founded.

In America, the Dachshund history started in 1885 when eleven dogs were registered with the American Kennel Club. The Dachshund Club of America was subsequently established in 1895. Although the popularity of the breed ebbed during the two world wars due to their association with Germany, by the 1950s the Dachshund regained its lost status, and the breed remains among the most popular in AKC rankings.
