Some FAQs about Dachshund

As family dogs, dachshunds are loyal companions and good watchdogs. They are good with children if treated well. They can be slightly difficult to train. Some dachshund fanciers say there are personality differences among the different varieties of the breed.

Dachshunds are bred with three coat varieties: (1) Smooth, (2) Long, and (3) Wirehaired, and is shown in two sizes: standard and miniature.

They love being with their family, to the point that some would describe them as a little needy. However, if they are left for long periods without human interaction, they can become distressed. Whatever the case, the Dachshund is not a low maintenance dog temperament wise.

For such a small-sized dog breed, the Dachshund has a loud bark that rivals that of dogs many times his size. And while as a Dachshund owner you probably adore your dog, your neighbors may not think the same, what with him waking them up at odd hours of the night. 

Your Dachshund will need a minimum of an hour exercise every day (half an hour if you have a miniature variety). This should be split into a couple of walks, one slightly longer to allow lots of time for sniffing. They will also need plenty of time to run and play off-lead in a secure area.

For adult standard dachshunds, you could break up the 60 minutes of daily exercise into a 20–25-minute walk twice a day, and 10–15 minutes of playtime. And for miniature dachshunds, you could break up the 30 minutes of exercise into a 20-minute walk and 10 minutes of playtime. These are minimum requirements though.

For Dachshund owners, you can expect your four-legged friend to sleep as much as 14 hours a day. It is completely natural for dogs, including your Dachshund, to snooze as soon as they don’t see any meaningful activities for them to perform.

Dachshunds have a lot of stamina and energy. They love to take a walk or play outdoors with other dogs, and they like to hunt and dig. They are also active inside the house and can do well in small living quarters so long as they get a moderate amount of daily exercise.

Despite their small size, Dachshunds need plenty of exercise and mental stimulation to maintain their cheerful and loving temperament. Strong-willed, they tend to ignore commands when on the scent of prey. Dachshunds will bark protectively at unexpected visitors but are good with older children. There are three coat types: smooth-haired, long-haired, and wire-haired. The long-haired varieties need daily grooming. Two sizes are recognized by the KC, miniature and standard; but three sizes, based on chest circumference, are recognized by the FCI.

The Breed History

In medieval times, dogs used to hunt badger were termed dachshund; the name means “badger hound”. The wirehaired versions were bred in order to protect the dogs from heavy brush. The first definitive records of specific breed type can be traced to the 17th century. By 1900, three varieties; a short, long, and wirehaired were recognized. The first German studbook records date to the mid 1800s. First AKC registry occurred in 1885. Standard and Miniature types are shown in separate class divisions and bred separately

Physical Characteristics

Height at Withers: no standard, but they are usually under 9” (23 cm).

Weight: Miniature: less than 11 lb (5 kg) at 1 year, Standard: 16-32 lb (7-14.5 kg).


1. Solid (self colored): includes red, cream. Nose and nails are black with these dogs.

2. Bi-colored: chocolate, black, Isabella (fawn) and gray (blue), with tan markings. A small white marking is acceptable on the chest. Dark bi-colored dogs have black noses and nails but other colors may have self or brown nose and nail color.

3. Dapple: intermixed light and dark with neither color predominating. In double dapples a larger white chest marking is allowed. Single and double dapple varieties exist. In the latter, white overlays the single dapple coloration.

4. Brindle dogs have a pattern of stripes that are black or dark over the body or within the tan points.

Three haircoat types:

1. Longhaired: Slightly wavy, the haircoat is longer under the body and behind the limbs. The ears particularly, should be endowed with longer silky hair. The tail has the longest hairs of the coat, and is structured to form a flag.

2. Smooth: The shorthaired variety possesses a very flat, glossy short haircoat.

3. Wirehaired: Over the body a thick, rough outer coat and a soft undercoat are interspersed. The ear, brow and jaw are free of the wirehair.

Longevity: 12-15 year

Recognized Behavior Issues and Traits

Reported breed characteristics include: Good in town or country, active outdoors, a gentle companion, a good alert barker, affectionate, and playful. Dachshunds are intelligent, easy to maintain because of low grooming needs, and if properly socialized, good with gentle children. They may have a strong independent, even stubborn streak, may be aggressive with strange dogs and aloof with strangers, and often have high barking and digging tendencies. They will become destructive if bored. Considered an average shedder, the coat care depends on coat type: smooth coats need minimal brushing, wire coats need to be stripped twice per annum, and a long hair coat needs daily grooming. They can tend to be biters, and this should be discouraged when young.
