WHEN BUYING FOR YOUR NEW DACHSHUND PUPPY...
I have found that the edible chew bones are dangerous as they break off in big pieces
and they can choke on them. Nylabones are great. Toys with strings need supervision.
So if you go with a crate of some sort you can just put blankets in the crate while they are small.

|QUESTIONS TO ALWAYS ASK WHEN LOOKING FOR A NEW PUPPY...
These are my own personal thoughts...I have learned a lot through my own
experiences in buying puppies locally and out of state. I have had wonderful
experiences and would be a repeat buyer and I have had terrible experiences and
would never buy again. It has been trial and error.
else. Parvo can kill your entire litter. Some breeders do not even let anyone handle pups till 6 to 8
weeks of age.
time to talk the breeder will ask you for your name and number and call you back as sometimes we
are busy with puppy or dogie care. I once had a breeder hang up on me saying I asked too many
questions...??? Their is no such thing as too many questions!
ON A FINAL NOTE...
How many dogs is too many? It is best put this way...PA is trying to establish a new law limiting the
number of dogs a breeder can own of any breed(s). One breeder may give better care and attention
to 30 dogs while another breeder may have 10 dogs and give bad care and attention.
So it is the care level of the dogs and condition of the dogs versus how many dogs their are.
If a breeder has several dogs...it is ok to ask if they have "help" with their dogs.
I personally have helpers who love my dogs as much as I do and I spend countless hours with
them. It is a huge commitment and very time consuming. I give up lots of other things in my life to be
committed to my dogs and their care. I enjoy providing healthy puppies to better the dachshund
breed. The day I stop enjoying it will be the day I stop breeding.
My motto is: "YOU WILL RECEIVE A HAPPY HEALTHY PUPPY FROM OUR HOME TO YOURS!"
|SHOULD I BUY A LONG HAIR? OR SMOOTH COAT?... ALSO CALLED A SHORT HAIR.
Some differences I have personally observed on average...always an exception...
PRO'S & CONS:
Short hairs are easier to groom than the long hairs...quicker to bath and blow dry.
Short hairs get colder faster than the long hairs so a coat in winter is appropriate for outside.
BOTH COATS...Are lovable lap dogs, affectionate and smart.
Some bark more than others and that goes for either coat.
