Really smart - Brian,

Brandy (Brandywine after a local tomato from where I'm originally from) is brilliant. Training at first was difficult with house breaking because she's clever and was trying to hide her business in the house. Now I'm 55 now and she's 10 and I've had dogs in my home for as long as I can remember. So I've trained my fair share. But I've mostly had big dogs so I wasn't keen at first about getting a small dog. Turned out I was wrong. I was also wrong with training process of my usual ways. So we took training in formal facility together specifically for dachshunds. I learned as much as Brandy did. Turns out those little dogs are really responsive to trading when done in a proper way. They also see what the others do right and wrong so being in group environment is beneficial. So she's very well behaved and obedient to my wife and I. Now when I walk her she knows not to pull on the lead, when my walks her she knows that she can get away with more. Walking through the woods where we can take her off the leash she's never out of sight and always looking for where we are. She is super fast and adventurous and love's to jump off a little bit of height into the water. The weirdest thing she does is hunt for rocks out of the rives. Whole head under water and pulls out a good size stone and brings it to our feet and barks to have us throw it back in where she will most likely find the exact same stone. The most surprising thing that I learned about these little dogs is that they don't know that they are little dogs so she has no fear of other dogs and if they try to bother her she will put them in their place. It's pretty funny to see a couple bigger dogs getting chased away from the pool because they keep steeling her toy. But mostly she's great with all animals especially horses, she loves horses. We have two cats as well that she doesn't mind at all. Strange cats as well as rabbits on the other hand she will chase to murder. She's great at restaurants and naps on her blanket and understanding that she needs to act really good in that environment. At home she will stair us down while we eat so doesn't miss a plate licking. She does bark at strangers when they come to the house but out in public she's unbothered and mostly uninterested in other people and most other dogs. She sometimes seems like she's being aggressive but she just wants to know why they are not petting her. All in all, best dog I've ever had the pleasure of sharing some life with. At 10 she's still full of energy and not showing any signs of slowing down. We are careful with letting her jump down from high places and she really loves to swim. A breed that I highly recommend getting and training together with professionals.

My little girl is 5 in September 22. She is so precious yet has a mind of her own. Very loyal to both me husband but knows I am her mommy. She was not hard to potty train and understands it completely - Dianna,

Great fun - Christine,

I have a standard black & tan dachshund - Max aka Mad Max.This dog now 3.5 years old is a clown, knows his own mind & does things in his own time. Very greedy, very loving & I would not be without a dachs in my life. Training was a drawn out process particularly toilet training & recall. Even now if it is raining he will not go out for a wee but will for a poo so use puppy pads. Recall - I used his favourite squeaky toy which he only saw out walking along with a treat for a good recall. Now he is pretty good particularly if I call out 'what's mummy got?' - instant response! His health to date has been fine but I am very careful about his weight & he is fed on high quality food only - Millies Wolfheart. Max loves children but is a bit boisterous with them so best with children 7 years plus. Friendly with all dogs except German Shepherds - only has to see one in the distance & he will sit down & howl. Nor is he keen on brachycephalic dogs such as French bull dogs, boxers & he will chase cats.
