The dachshund, also known as the wiener dog, badger dog, and sausage dog, is a short-legged, long-bodied, hound-type dog breed.
Standard Dachshunds weigh between 16 and 32 pounds (7 and 15 kg) and grow to a height of around 8 or 9 inches (20 or 23 cm).
Although the average age of Dachshunds is between 12 and 15 years old, they have the potential to live much longer.
The average price of Dachshunds is $1,500 USD from a reputable breeder. However, the price of all Dachshunds can range between $400 and $1,100.
Dachshunds are loyal companions and good watchdogs. They are good with children if treated well.
Dachshunds have a large bark unlike some of their small breed counterparts, and they seem to bark frequently.
No. Climbing up stairs will cause stress to your dachshund's back, and climbing downstairs is jarring on his spine.
Don't let them jump from high places, and when you hold them, support their backs.
Dachshunds can be stubborn and difficult to housebreak. Crate-training is recommended.
