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. If using our contact number please text first and we can organise a time for a call if you prefer to talk. Price may be negotiable to a loving home.

About Dachshund

These charming dogs are famous for their elongated bodies and short legs, resembling a sausage. They were originally bred for hunting badgers.

Grooming

Grooming

Dachshunds are moderate shedders. Wire-haired Dachshunds shed the least. Brushing their coats once or twice a week is enough.

Origins

Originating from Germany, Dachshunds were developed in the 15th century and became a recognized breed in the 17th century.

The name “Dachshund” translates to “badger dog” in German, reflecting their hunting purpose.

Their short legs, sturdy chests, and large ears are well-suited for this task.

By the 17th century, two varieties emerged: standard-sized for hunting and miniatures for chasing rabbits and rodents.

Key Characteristics Of Dachshunds

Are Dachshunds Family-Friendly?

Absolutely! They make excellent pets for households with children. These furry friends are loving, playful, and energetic.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Dachshunds may suffer from:

Intervertebral disc disease

Patella luxation

Hip dysplasia

Eye issues

Obesity

Nature / Temperament

Dachshund puppies are known for their fun personalities. They are described as affectionate, independent, and courageous.

Suitable Environment

These furry companions adapt well to both homes and compact apartments. They are ideal for urban dwellers since they don’t require extensive outdoor space or vigorous exercise.

Other Considerations

  • Dachshunds come in three coat varieties: smooth-coated, wire-haired, and long-haired.
  • Common coat colors include chocolate, red, dapple, black, and tan.
  • While sociable, Dachshunds can be cautious around strangers and may bark at new visitors.
  • They prefer warm climates; in cold weather, they may feel chilly and benefit from dog sweaters.
  • House training can be challenging; crate training with positive reinforcement is recommended.

How can I take good care of my Dachshund?

Nutrition

Dachshunds have large appetites and can overeat, so monitoring their food intake is essential.

They should ideally be fed between half a cup and one and a half cups of high-quality dog food daily.

Grooming

The grooming needs of Dachshunds vary based on their coat type.

Smooth and long-haired Dachshunds typically require weekly brushing.

Wire-haired Dachshunds may need special attention to remove dead fur.

Regular grooming twice a year can promote healthy coats.

Exercise

Dachshunds do not require extensive exercise. Two moderate walks per day usually suffice to keep them healthy. With proper care, Dachshunds can live up to 16 years.

Training

Despite being intelligent, Dachshunds can be challenging to train due to their bold nature.

They can learn commands easily but may choose not to follow them. Using treats and positive reinforcement techniques can aid in training these dogs.
