Dapple dachshund puppies for sale
Dapple dachshund puppies for sale have an amazing sense of smell that was originally used for hunting. The scent receptors in their nose mean they can smell up to 40 times better than a human can!
That’s why they excel at games where they need to search out treats and toys around your home and garden.
Not only does this give their brain a work out, but it also channels their natural hunting instincts into fun activities too.
Interestingly, Dachshunds can also be trained to be great truffle hunters. They’ll scamper through the undergrowth to sniff out that distinctive fungi smell!
Truffles are often referred to as ‘edible gold’ – so that’s real treasure your smart little Dachshund is able to unearth!
Dapple dachshund puppies for sale know what you’re saying
Dachshunds are really smart when it comes to language and often know what you’re saying.
Whilst they might not always respond to commands first time, Dachshunds are capable of remembering high numbers of different commands.
According to research, it’s thought that most dogs can recognise about 89 unique words and phrases. In fact, Dachshunds are said to have a similar level of intelligence to that of a 2-2.5-year-old human child.
Dachshunds often have been seen as a symbol of Germany. Because of this association, Dachshunds lost popularity in the United States during World War I and World War II. Their appeal was too great for this to resist, however, and they quickly made a comeback in popularity. Because of the association with Germany, a Dachshund named Waldi was chosen to be the first official mascot for the 1972 Summer Olympics.
Dachshunds are a good choice for apartment dwellers and people who don’t have a backyard. They are popular with urban dwellers because of their small size and ease of care. They generally are active indoors and also enjoy going on walks. Just be careful not to let them get too fat or allow them to injure their backs by jumping off furniture. Also, be sure to support their backs when you are holding them. Because of their long backs, they are susceptible to slipped or ruptured (herniated) disks in their backs, which can result in partial or full paralysis.
