The Ultimate Miniature Dachshund Guide

About Miniature Dachshund

Miniature Dachshunds are often affectionately called Doxies, Dashies or Teckels. In Australia, they are fondly known as “sausage dogs” due to their unusual shape. The German terms “dachs” and “hund” translate to “badger” and “dog” in English, respectively.



12 to 15 years



5 kg or less at maturity



13 to 18 cm



There are short-haired, wire-haired, and long-haired Dachshunds. It is recommended to groom short-haired dogs at least once a week, and wire-haired and long-haired dogs several times a week.


The Miniature Dachshund is believed to have originated in the late 19th century. Breeders aimed to develop a variant of the Dachshund that could still hunt effectively but was better suited for pursuing small game like rabbits. This was achieved through carefully selecting and breeding smaller sized Dachshunds.

Similar to their larger counterparts, Miniature Dachshunds gained popularity in many other countries such as the United States. Initially bred for hunting purposes, they quickly transitioned into household pets due to their appearance and amiable nature.

Today, these small canines are officially recognized by kennel clubs and are cherished as beloved pets worldwide. Known for their elongated bodies, sharp sense of smell, and lively personality, Miniature Dachshunds often exhibit boldness despite their size.

Key Characteristics Of Miniature Dachshunds

Are Miniature Dachshunds Family-Friendly?

Yes. These dogs are suitable for families. They are good with children and make wonderful companions for single or older people.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Miniature Dachshunds may suffer from:

Intervertebral disc disease


Progressive retinal atrophy


Cushing’s Disease

A condition resulting from excessive cortisol production that manifests in symptoms like increased thirst, hunger, urination, and a rounded belly.

Nature / Temperament

Playful, Independent, Loyal, Courageous, and Clever

Suitable Environment

Miniature Dachshund puppies do well in small living spaces as long as they get some light exercise daily. They can easily adjust to apartments or houses with or without yards.

Other Considerations

Despite their stature, Miniature Dachshund puppies have a high pitched bark. They might be cautious around strangers; thus, early socialisation is highly recommended.

Due to their unique bodies, these dogs are prone to back issues. It’s wise to teach your pet not to jump on and off high surfaces.

These dogs have natural hunting instincts so its no surprise if they tend to display hunting-related behaviours. Starting their training early can help prevent them from digging up your yard or treating their toys as prey.

How can I take good care of my Miniature Dachshund?


For Miniature Dachshund puppies, its best to give them ½ to 1½ cups of quality dry dog food per day split into two meals. Choose food that’s rich in protein and filled with vitamins, minerals and fats.

Monitor your dog’s eating habits as excess weight can strain its fragile back. You’ll know you’re feeding too much if it leaves food in its bowl.


The Miniature Dachshund is an easy-to-care for breed that needs minimal grooming. You can clean your Mini Dachshund with a cloth between baths. If you have a wire-haired or long haired variety, remember to brush its fur to prevent tangles.


For Miniature Dachshund puppies, it’s recommended to engage them in five minutes of activity per month from birth up to 12 months old. As they grow older (around four to six months), you can gradually extend the duration of their walks.

Start with light activities. Progressively introduce more vigorous playtime while your pup is still young.

Given this breed’s tendency to gain weight, incorporating exercise is essential. Aim for around 30 minutes of play or walking once your dog reaches maturity at approximately one year old.


Miniature Dachshund puppies are intelligent but can also show an independent streak, which might present challenges during training. Patience and consistency are key when teaching them skills, along with positively reinforcing them with treats and praise.

To keep your pet interested and motivated, try keeping training sessions short. Vary your dog’s activities regularly to keep them engaged and avoid monotony. Enrolling your friend in a training program can help them pick up commands quicker and also gives them a chance to interact with other dogs.

This is basic information and should not be the sole basis for deciding on adoption or buying. It’s best to seek advice from a professional to better understand the breed’s care, special needs and requirements.

Most Asked Miniature Dachshund Questions

A Mini Dachshund has an elongated head, a long body, a large chest, well-defined muscles, and short legs. Common colours include red, cream, tan, grey, brown, and black.

All three varieties of the Miniature Dachshund shed but not excessively. Each is considered a moderate shedder.

Miniature Dachshund puppies typically cost between AUD $2,500 and $5,500 from a reputable breeder. To get a healthy dog, prioritise breeders with a history of producing good specimens of the breed.
