Learn About Dachshund Pups!

Breed Overview

Small yet protective, Dachshunds are bred to be independent hunters of dangerous prey, making them an excellent watchdog. Due to their protective nature, a Dachshund is extremely brave and will bark when they feel threatened. That being said, with proper training and introduction early on, Dachshunds can be affectionate and friendly with kids and teens. As Dachshunds tend to bark a lot, they may pose a challenge to any potential owners that aren’t so keen with noises. Stubborn but intelligent, patience and consistency are key when training a Dachshund. On the other hand, Dachshunds are considered to be one of the most low-maintenance dog breeds and are moderate shedders, so they don’t need a bath every week. If you’re looking to complete your family with a Dachshund, Puppies Direct can find the perfect match for you!
