Longhaired Dachshunds have sleek, slightly wavy hair and can be the same colors as the Smooth Dachshund. They should be brushed every day to prevent mats from forming, especially around their elbows and ears. Many believe that the Longhaired Dachshund has a more docile temperament than the Smooth or Wirehair.
Wirehaired Dachshunds have wiry, short, thick, rough coats with bushy eyebrows and a beard. Like Smooth Dachshunds, they often are mischievous.
Dachshunds can get very attached, very quickly, and it would be very unsettling to have to rehome him again. The wire-haired dachshunds with ‘pin wire’ coats are the best option from a shedding point of view and may be the best choice for allergy sufferers. But, if anyone in the family has severe allergies to dogs, don’t rush the decision. Spend plenty of time with the dachshund and see how things go.
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.
Dachshunds are intelligent dogs with an independent nature and playful spirit. Because of this, they can be mischievous. Be patient, firm, and consistent when training them.
