Perspective On Dachshunds

By Derrick Pedranti

Derrick Pedranti and Dogs - Dachshunds

I appreciate dachshunds’ affectionate, loving demeanor and smaller size. Like beagles they are a member of the hound breed. Dachshunds are among Derrick Pedranti’s favorite dog breeds.

There are three kinds of dachshunds defined by their coat type: smooth coat (short haired), wirehaired and longhaired. The longhaired dachshunds are usually the calmest. Their longer hair will require a bit more grooming though.

They come in a variety of colors — red, cream, wheaten, black and tan, chocolate and tan, chocolate and cream, chocolate, black, black and cream, blue and tan, fawn and tan, and white. There are so many to choose from.

Dachshunds are extremely loyal to their owner but they can be a bit standoffish with strangers. So it is important to socialize them with other people when they are young. You should enroll him or her in puppy training classes — actually a good recommendation for all dog breeds.

One important thing to consider is that due to their physiology dachshunds are prone to develop back problems. So it’s important to keep them at a healthy weight and also try to prevent them from jumping on and off furniture.

I hope you’ll consider dachshunds as a loving companion and member of your family.

Thank you,
