Miniature Dachshund

About the Breed

The Miniature Dachshund comes in a wide variety of colours and can be either long haired or short haired, so grooming needs depend on the coat type, but are generally low-maintenance. It is known for being a friendly, playful and feisty little dog with bags of personality.

While an intelligent dog, the Miniature Dachshund can be a challenge to train because it has a mind of its own, so early training and socialisation is highly recommended. Recall is important to teach the Miniature Dachshund because of its high prey drive.
