If you want to look at some adorable Dachshund photos, here they are!
The Dachshund is a very famous dog with a very cute distinctive look. It has a sausage-shaped body, floppy ears, and typically has a brown and black coat. This coat is usually short, but can be long, and this will influence their grooming needs. Short coats need a lot less brushing than long coats. Either way, they do shed, so allergic dog owners should be aware of this before purchasing one.
They are playful and can be courageous to a fault. That means they tend to run into situations without thinking, so they need to be taught good verbal cues. You should teach them a reliable recall cue, as well as how to “leave it” so you have full control of your dog in potentially dangerous situations. It can be months of consistent work before these cues are reliable though.
A Devoted Dog
Otherwise, Dachshunds are very devoted and loyal, so no need to worry about having a dog that will love to cuddle on the couch with you! If you train them well and take care of them, you’ll have the perfect companion who loves to be by your side.
Dachshunds can be prone to back problems and hip dysplasia, so make sure you keep up with their vet visits. Preventative visits every year will help, as your vet can keep an eye on their condition.
