Family Puppy’s Recommendation

Although Dachshunds are used for hunting in many countries even today, they are kept mainly as companions. If they are accustomed to living around children, they usually get along fine, but Dachshunds do not tolerate being treated as toys. Because it would be rather futile to expect very young children to take this into consideration, the Dachshund is a good choice primarily for those families in which the kids are older. This breed is ideal for single or retired people as well.

The Dachshund is a lively, famously smart, inventive and intelligent dog. It is not the most obedient breed, moreover, its stubbornness is sometimes almost comical. The Dachshund is full of contradictions. It is extremely brave, tough, and persistent in the field, at home, however, it enjoys the comfort it is accustomed to. This breed craves attention and may get conspicuously upset if they speak to it too strictly.  Its behaviour can be characterised by steadfast determination: once it decides something, it can manipulate its owner very shrewdly to reach its goal.

For a Dachshund it is always the family that comes first, so it does not waste too much time on strangers, it is rather reserved. It usually gets along peacefully with other dogs but, if necessary, it does not shy back from confrontation, either. Because of its strong hunting instinct, it is not advisable to keep it together with other small pets, like rabbits or rodents. With cats, however, it can live with, provided that it got accustomed to their presence from puppy age.

The coat of the short-haired Dachshund does not require any particular grooming routine. It is enough to brush it through from time to time with a bristle brush, which removes dead and loose hair equally well. The wire-haired Dachshund, on the other hand, is supposed to be trimmed by a professional dog groomer twice a year on average. The Dachshund loves to eat and, with its irresistible begging look, it often succeeds in swindling more food or treats from its owner than necessary. It should not be allowed to do so because overweight Dachshunds are more prone to get sick.

The Dachshund is a breed with a rather independent way of thinking and a stubborn mind. Due to its unique temperament, it requires consistent training. With a sufficient amount of patience and empathy, it can be taught many things, but it will never follow its owner’s orders in a subservient manner. It gets so stirred up when it feels that they punished him unjustly the it may sulk for a long period of time. The character of the Dachshund can be improved greatly if it is introduced as a puppy to as many people, pets and situations as possible.

Although it accompanies its owners on longer walks with pleasure, there are a few Dachshunds that prefer less exercise. It is advisable, though, to make sure that our Dachshund moves a lot because this is the best way to keep it in a good condition. In general, it is a strong and healthy breed that may live a very long life but, due to its long back, it should avoid walking up and down the stairs and getting overweight.
