Dachshund – Flagstone

BIN0015081240934 These 3 beauties were born on the 17th of April making them 8 weeks old. All photos above are current. We don’t want to seperate them from mum and dad until they are approx 10-12 weeks as ethically and developmentally that is more appropriate - so it’s time for us to start looking for their forever homes, to give families the chance to meet and mingle with their pup before they take them home! They’ve been raised very much as a part of the family having free rein of most of the house/yard as a pack and playing with our 3 year old and 1 year old. They are very cheeky, playful and each one has a unique personality. We are home with them 97% of the time and have been since day 1 so the pups are very used to a hands on family and kids. They would best suit families that can be with them more often than not. About our pack (photos above) Mum - Red Mini Dachshund x Mini Foxie (Pure Doxie) Dad - Pure Silver Dapple Dachshund Both mum and dad have the most beautiful nature - are excellent with kids and just love to love on their humans! And the pups Tri colour (black, white, tan) - Boy Red Dapple - Girl Silver Dapple - Girl All the pups have had full vet work done and been wormed every 2-3 weeks. They are very healthy, happy and cheeky. Get in touch with us if you have any interest, questions or would like more photos/videos of a particular pup.

Dachshund – Peppermint Grove

Frank (black & tan) and Otto (tan) are brothers, born September 11 2023 (approx. seven months old). Frank is slightly bigger and weighs approx. 4.8kg. Otto is approx 4.6kg. Since birth, they have been inseparable and continue to play, eat and sleep together. Only adopting to a family that can take both together. Both Frank and Otto are fully vaccinated and on a monthly worming tablet. They both have an extremely affectionate and playful nature; they love people, kids and other dogs. Both are house-trained and able to stay home alone for a workday. They are used to having two walks daily at a dog park where they play with all their friends. I am looking for the right home for the boys as I can no longer keep them due to personal reasons. Please understand I am hoping to find the right home for them and would like to know more about your family.

The Ultimate Dachshund Guide

About Dachshund

Best known for their elongated bodies, stubby legs, and deep expressive eyes, Dachshunds are celebrated for their loyal personalities and tireless spirit.

Grooming

Grooming

Dachshunds come in three coat varieties: short-haired, long-haired, and wire-haired. Grooming needs can vary accordingly.

Origins

The Dachshund, meaning “badger dog” in German, has a history dating back to the 15th century. This breed was designed in Germany to be robust and courageous enough to dig into badger dens and face off against the fierce animals. Their distinctive elongated body and short legs allowed them to efficiently manoeuvre through burrows, while their broad chests provided the necessary power for digging.

These dogs were also utilised for hunting other game such as rabbits and foxes. The breed eventually made its way into the royal courts of Europe, thanks to Queen Victoria, who was a Dachshund enthusiast.

Key Characteristics Of Dachshunds

Are Dachshunds Family-Friendly?

Dachshunds can make excellent family pets. They are known to be good with children if introduced properly and treated kindly.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Dachshunds may suffer from:

Intervertebral Disk Disease

Degenerative Mitral Valve Disease

Obesity

Nature / Temperament

Lively, Clever, Playful, Devoted, Courageous

Suitable Environment

Dachshunds are adaptable dogs that can thrive in various living environments. They do well in apartments as well as houses with yards. However, potential owners should remember that these dogs are diggers by nature, and might try to burrow into sofa cushions or yard dirt.

Other Considerations

  • Dachshunds come in two sizes: standard and miniature. Standard Dachshunds are larger and were traditionally used for hunting badgers, while the miniature ones were used for hunting smaller game like rabbits.
  • Dachshunds are social animals that crave companionship. If you work long hours or travel frequently, a Dachshund may not be the best fit.
  • Dachshunds can be wonderful family pets, but if you have very young children or other pets, consider the dynamics and supervision required.

Average cost of a Dachshund

How can I take good care of my Dachshund?

Nutrition

Due to their small size and tendency to gain weight, they require a well-balanced diet that is high in protein, moderate in fat, and relatively low in carbohydrates.

A Dachshund’s diet should be carefully monitored to avoid overfeeding, which can lead to obesity and exacerbate potential spine problems. Moreover, it’s important to provide meals that cater to their life stage – puppy, adult, or senior – and overall health condition.

Grooming

Short-haired Dachshunds have the simplest grooming needs, requiring only a quick brush each week to keep their coat shiny and healthy. Long-haired Dachshunds need brushing several times a week to prevent matting and tangling. Wire-haired Dachshunds have a thick, short, rough coat with a finer undercoat and require stripping a couple of times a year to maintain their coat’s texture.

Exercise

Daily walks, interactive games, and mentally stimulating activities are recommended. High-impact exercises like jumping or intense stair-climbing should be avoided due to the breed’s predisposition to spinal issues.

Training

Training a Dachshund can be a fun, rewarding experience but it requires patience and consistency. These intelligent dogs can be somewhat stubborn, so they respond best to positive reinforcement techniques like treats, praise, or play.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Most Asked Dachshund Questions

Dachshunds are known for their loud, deep bark, which they originally used in their role as badger hunters. They can be quite vocal, especially when they want attention or if they sense something amiss in their environment.

House training a Dachshund can be a challenge due to their stubborn nature. Consistency, patience, and a regular schedule are key. Crate training can also be effective.

Finding a reputable Dachshund breeder is the key to getting a healthy, well-behaved Dachshund puppy. A puppy from an ethical breeder has a much better chance of growing into a calm, gentle adult dog. The average cost of a Dachshund for sale in Melbourne  is usually around AUD $1500 to $3000.
