History

  • He was bred for hunting badgers
  • He can be traced back to dogs of the 15th century who were used for hunting badgers in Germany
  • In the 17th century he got the name "Dachshund" which means "Badger Dog"

Personality and Behavior

  • He tends to be snappy towards children
  • He tends to growl or bark at strangers
  • He tends to be aggressive toward strange dogs
  • He loves digging holes
  • He likes barking
  • He loves to chase things due to his hunting instinct
  • He doesn't like to be alone and needs to be around you!
  • He's difficult to housebreak

Training

  • He's not easy to train. You will need patience as he is slower than most to learn obedience commands.

Shedding

  • He sheds quite a bit of hair. You'll find some hair stuck to your clothes, couch and carpets.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His medium-length coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds you may find yourself brushing it once a week, or more, to minimize the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).

Other varieties

  • Dachshund (Smooth), Dachshund (Wirehaired)
