The Ultimate Sausage Dog Guide

About Sausage Dog

The Sausage Dog, or Dachshund, is a breed that goes by many nicknames including “Wiener Dog,” “Badger Dog,” and “Doxie.” It is a scent hound originally bred to hunt smaller prey like rabbits and weasels. Today, however, it is more popular as a family pet.

While an excellent house companion, this purebred also makes a wonderful show dog, small-game hunter, race animal, and therapy canine.



12 to 16 years



Standard: Seven to 14 kilograms Miniature: Five kilograms or under at maturity



Standard: 20 to 23 cm Miniature: 12 to 15



Sausage Dogs are low-maintenance breeds that do not shed excessively.


The first Sausage Dog was developed in Germany where it was known as the “Teckel.” The purpose was of the breeding was to create a fearless and elongated canine that could fight badgers.

In 1879, the German Dachshund Club was founded. Six years later, the breed made its way to the United States where 11 dogs were registered with the American Kennel Club. In 1895, the Dachshund Club of America was founded.

By the early 1900s, Sausage Dogs became quite favoured in the United States and England. However, since they were closely related to Germany, they lost popularity during both World Wars I and II. Come the 1950s, these dogs regained popularity in several parts of the world including Australia.

Key Characteristics Of Sausage Dogs

Are Sausage Dogs Family-Friendly?

These dogs make wonderful family pets. They are good with children especially when introduced at an early age.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Sausage Dogs may suffer from:

Progressive retinal atrophy


Canine diabetes mellitus


Intervertebral disc disease


Cushing’s disease

Nature / Temperament

Playful, clever, lively, courageous, independent, and loyal

Suitable Environment

Because of its small size, the Sausage Dog makes a suitable pet for apartment-dwellers and people who live in a house but does not have a backyard. This is because this canine is generally active indoors and only requires a short walk daily.

Other Considerations

  1. While small, they have a loud and deep bark. This should be a consideration for those who live in an apartment with many neighbours.
  2. They are small and long, making them prone to injury if not handled properly by children. These dogs should only be held when they are sitting on the floor or when their back is fully supported.
  3. Do not allow these canines to jump from high places as they are prone to slipped discs.

Average cost of a Sausage Dog

Sausage dogs typically range between $1000 and $5500AUD.

How can I take good care of my Sausage Dog?


It is recommended to feed your dog ½ to 1½ cups of high-quality dry food daily. Avoid giving it cooked bones or foods that are high in fat. Should you wish to feed your canine table scraps, it is advised to give them in small quantities.

A Sausage Dog should never become overweight due to its fragile back. It is suggested to monitor its weight and food intake regularly.


This canine has either a smooth, wirehaired, or longhaired coat. Its grooming needs depend on its coat type.

A smooth-coated Sausage Dog is simply wash-and-wear, while a wirehaired one should be hand-stripped twice or thrice a year. Meanwhile, a longhaired canine may need frequent brushing, depending on the thickness of the coat.


The Sausage Dog is energetic, despite being small. It loves to walk and play with its owner and other dogs. It also enjoys hunting and digging.

To keep this canine’s back strong, two walks per day are recommended. Never allow it to jump on or off your furniture or run up and down your staircase.


This dog is intelligent. However, it can be a bit independent and stubborn at times. This makes it quite challenging to train. The good thing is, by being patient, consistent, and firm when teaching this breed commands and tricks, you can get it to listen and obey.

The Sausage Dog does well with positive and reward-based training. It is suggested to avoid giving it harsh commands or punishment. This is basic information, and it should not be used to make adoption or purchasing decisions. Be sure to consult an expert if you’d like to learn about the breed’s care and requirements.

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

Most Asked Sausage Dog Questions

As the name suggests, the Sausage Dog has an elongated head; a long, muscular body; short legs; and a barrel-like chest. It also has droopy ears and a long muzzle.

This canine’s coat comes in various shades, including chocolate, red, white, grey, and black. Some are spotted, while others have rounded patches.

It sheds, but not excessively.

The Sausage Dog is quite a popular breed, which is why it isn’t surprising that many try to make good money out of it. These include puppy mills and backyard breeders.

If you want to end up with a dog that is healthy and even-tempered, it is recommended to adopt one from a responsible breeder. A Sausage Dog for sale typically costs between AUD $2,500 and $5,500.
