How much do Wire Dachshund puppies cost?

The cost to buy a Wire Dachshund varies greatly and depends on many factors such as the breeders' location, reputation, litter size, lineage of the puppy, breed popularity (supply and demand), training, socialization efforts, breed lines and much more. Review how much Wire Dachshund puppies for sale sell for below.

The current median price for all Wire Dachshunds sold is $675.00. This is the price you can expect to budget for a Wire Dachshund with papers but without breeding rights nor show quality. Expect to pay less for a puppy without papers, however, we do not recommend buying a puppy without papers.

You should expect to pay a premium for a puppy with breeding rights or even for a puppy advertised as show quality with papers.

Annual cost of owning a Wire Dachshund puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Wire Dachshunds true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

We have recently rescued a Dachshund Wire Hair and she has simply stolen our hearts. The only problem we are having is training her to poop outside. She walks several times daily and never does a thing. Once in the house she goes. We've tried peewee pads, but all she does is sleep on them.

If possible try an ex-pen. I have 2 females that won't poop on a leash. They will in an ex-pen.

How can this breed not be AKC recognized when a Wired Haired Dachshund just won the best of the hound group at the Westminster Dog Show?

Wire Haired Dachshunds are an AKC recognized breed as well as a UKC recognized breed. I am in an AKC show this weekend with my male and female in Lockport, NY. I will be showing them at a UCK show in Lock NY on 11/2,3&4. I have 4 adult ACK & UKC Champions.

Anonymous asked:
I have a Dachshund, will be 16 years old soon. What is their life span, life expectancy?



Normally the oldest is about 18 years but it depends on how active your Dachshund is.


I breed Standard Wire Dachshunds and they usually live to 16-18 years but my sister, who is also a Wire Haired Dachshund Breeder, has had 2 live to 21 years old.

ajbe11er asked:
Do Wire Haired Dachshunds shed?



My wire haired dachshund doesn't seem to shed at all and its 95 degrees outside.


Wire haired dachshunds do shed but not much. Wires have a soft undercoat which needs to be pulled out leaving the harsh coat.


Wire dachshunds don't Have to be pulled. I had 2, a mother and son. I didn't show the Mom so I never did pull the hair, son I showed so I had to. Neither of them shed much. A good brush once a week had great results. šŸ˜Š

I would like to know how to groom a double coated Wire Haired double coated Dachshund.

Wires are stripped. You use either stripping stones or stripping knifes. The under coat is a soft dead coat which needs to be pulled out. This is how you groom for showing. They can also be clipped like most pet Terriers are. They too need to be stripped shows.
