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.

Does your Mini Dachshund bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Mini Dachshund puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

When my dog barks at someone does that mean she dose not like the person?

Dogs bark for a lot of reasons, but when they bark at a person it all depends on the situation. If the dog is on his/her territory and a person is walking by; then your dog is being territorial. If your dog is barking at the end of his/her leash at a person, then your dog has barrier frustration. If you dog barks at someone when they are in your home and tries to hide/barks and runs away; then your dog is afraid of either the person or a scent on the person. Contact your local behaviorist and have them view the behavior to explain what your dog is trying to tell you.

What is the Mini Dachshund temperament like?

The Miniature Dachshund is much like its original counterpart. They are loyal, sweet dogs but have a feisty terrier side that can make them difficult to live with small children and/or non-dog-savvy owners. These little dogs need a lot of socialization and training to teach them what is okay and what is not okay to be wary of. They are known for stranger wariness and can be snappy if teased or taunted. If you are interested in the breed, I would suggest spending some face to face time with the breed. Find a breeder close to your area or go to a couple dog shows that have the breed listed so you can talk to the owners, handlers and breeders of this breed.

Can Mini Dachshunds have trouble giving birth?

Any breed can have trouble giving birth. However, with smaller breeds that have big heads, such as the Miniature Dachshund they can have problems. It is best to consult a reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder as well as a trusted vet as to if a C-section is better for your female or not.

I have a 1-year-old mini Dachshund. We are still having a hard time potty training her. Any advice?

Using a positive reinforcement based training method is the fastest and easiest way to house-train your dog. Using the two-hour method, meaning when you are at home you have the dog attached to you on a leash and have a timer set to go off every 2 hours. Take your pup out and when they use the bathroom, praise and give them a treat. If you are out of the house, then crate your puppy so your pup can not have an accident while you are away.

How much and how often should I feed my 8-week old Minature Dachshund?

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.
