Overview
Dating back to the 16th century, the Mini Dachshund was created to hunt hare. Originating in Germany, this breed is actually a Terrier. They gained notoriety in England when Queen Victoria became a fancier. Today Mini Dachshund's continue to be popular pets and are occasionally still used for hunting.
Character
A robust and muscular breed, the Mini Dachshund is short of leg and long in body. They possess an alert and intelligent expression. Mini Dachshund's are athletic, adventerous, and bold.
Temperament
The Mini Dachshund is affectionate, devoted, and loving. Due to their small stature and tendency to be snappish when teased they do best in a home with older, considerate children. The Mini Dachshund breed is often aggressive or jealous of other pets. They are wary of strangers and will alert their family to visitors or out of the ordinary occurrences.
Care
Mini Dachshund's are relatively easy to care for. The Smooth and Wire-Haired coat varieties require weekly brushing to remove loose and dead hair. In addition, the Wire-Haired variety needs professionally trimmed twice a year. The Long-Haired coat variety requires daily brushing to prevent matting and tangling. Bathing should be done when necessary. The Mini Dachshund breed is prone to such health issues as obesity, hip dysplasia, spinal problems, epilepsy, bloat, and eye disease.
Coat
The Mini Dachshund comes in three varieties: Smooth, Wire-Haired, and Long-Haired. The Smooth variety is sleek and short. The Wire-Haired variety is a double coat. The outer coat is short and hard, the under coat is soft and fine. The Long-Haired variety is elegant, glistening, slightly wavy, and is longer on the neck, chest, underside of the body, and behind the legs.
Training
The Mini Dachshund has a tendency to be stubborn and willful; making training a challenge. They are notoriously difficult to housebreak and the crate training method is recommended. Early socialization and obedience is a must. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
Activity
Mini Dachshund's are ideal for both country or city living. They require sufficient exercise to prevent boredom and obesity. The Mini Dachshund enjoys securely leashed walks, indoor family play time, and off-lead play in a securely fenced yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Mini Dachshund puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Your vet can give you the information as to how much to feed your dog. But you should be doing 3 - 5 feedings a day.

How do I get my dachshund puppy to sleep longer at nights My dachshund puppy will only sleep for a few hours at night and then she is up for a long at night. How do I get her to sleep longer at night?

Dachshunds may be small, but a few things that might help her to sleep longer is for her to eliminate before bedtime, not eat or drink right before bed, exercise her more when not sleeping, have a set routine for her, and/or challenge her mind with small treats that are hard to get inside toys.

The Dachshund should have the same amount of toes on the back paws as any other dog, which is 4.
