The Dachshund Page

"Some day, if I ever get a chance, I shall write a book, or warning, on the character and temperament of the dachshund and why he can't be trained and shouldn't be. I would rather train a striped zebra to balance on an Indian club than induce a dachshund to heed my slightest command."

The Long-Haired Dachshund

Hruler04.jpg (8064 bytes)

Bred in Germany to go to ground and hunt out badgers, the Dachshund comes in six distinct varieties identified by coat type and size - Smooth-Haired, Long-Haired, and Wire-Haired, each in Standard or Miniature size.

Of the Dachshund family, the Long-Haired with his soft, lustrous coat similar to that of an Irish Setter, is the most glamorous. His thick, waterproof, well-feathered coat protects him against thorns, while enabling him to endure extremes of temperature. As with all coated breeds, he requires regular grooming to keep his coat in good condition.

Being very territorial, the Long-Haired Dachshund makes an excellent little guard dog, issuing ferocious barks, and being very quick to either attack or defend when the need arises. With his friends, however, he is cheerful and affectionate, liking nothing better than congenial company.

Obedient, faithful, extremely intelligent, and easy to train, the Long-Haired Dachshund has a delightful sense of humour and makes a devoted companion. Embodying many big dog qualities in a small frame, the Long-Haired Dachshund has much to recommend it.
