Dachshund Info & Dachshund Breeders

The dachshund is a short-legged, long-bodied breed of dog that belongs to the hound family. The standard size dachshund was bred to scent, chase, and flush out badgers and other burrow-dwelling animals, while the miniature dachshund was developed to hunt smaller animals like rabbits.


Dachshunds are very devoted and loyal to their owners, though they can be standoffish towards strangers and may growl or bark at them. Dachshunds are playful, but also know to be stubborn, which can make them a challenge to train.  In 'the intelligence of dogs' they are rated as an average working dog with a persistent ability to follow trained commands 50% of the time or more. Like many dogs if left alone too frequently, some dachshunds are prone to separation anxiety and may chew objects in the house to relieve stress.


Dachshunds may not be the best pets for small children though if well trained, dachshunds and well behaved children usually get along fine. Otherwise, they may be aggressive and bite an unfamiliar child, especially one that moves quickly around them or teases them. However, many Dachshunds are very tolerant and loyal to children within their family.
