Looking For A Long Haired Dachshund Breeder?
Dachshunds are curious, lively, charming, and brave. They are comical and love to play and they have a great sense of humor. They are very loyal and become very attached to their family, and they believe sleeping under the bed covers is in the Dachshund Bill of Rights. Dachshunds are often kept in pairs, which is A-OK with them, since they seem to recognize and prefer being with other “wiener dogs”.
They’re usually good with other family pets, too, though they can be jealous when they want attention and they can be possessive of their toys. You need to put a firm stop to the first signs of jealousy or possessiveness so that these don’t become bad habits.
Though the Dachshund makes a great house dog, he does need his exercise. If you decide to take your dachshund for walks, be sure to use a leash. Dachshunds are chasers who will take off! Their hunting instincts may take over and they may not respond if you try to call them back, so a leash is a must. It only takes a second for them to run out in the road and get hit by a car.
They need plenty of tender, loving care. They love to be in your lap and always near you. They are definitely not outside dogs. If you want an outside dog, don’t get a dachshund.
Dachshunds come in a variety of smallish sizes, coats and colors. They are very comical and entertaining. They are very loyal to their family and are usually good with other family pets, especially other Dachshunds. If you are thinking about inviting one or more of these faithful companions into your home then you will be blessed with their wit, love and devotion. They are great watchdogs too, and they love to bark at anything out of the ordinary. (They may be small but they don’t know it.) And, they usually live a long life.
Please be sure to research the breed before making your final decision that you want Dachshunds in your life. As for us, life would be pretty dull without them.
