Why I urge you to love a dachshund

I have both owned, and occasionally bred dachshunds since the late 1960s. In those early times, Dachies were a popular breed of dog in Australia, but over time, public interest in the breed has declined sharply. Dachies are said to have weak spines and thus are highly susceptible to spinal damage. During the many years I have been associated with dachshunds I have never owned a dog that has had back problems, except for my bitch Bridget who fell over a steep embankment onto her back and injured herself. This injury was quickly repaired with two sessions of acupuncture.

I am suggesting that over the years the dachshund became a much maligned breed, and I feel that this is a great pity. Dachshunds are very outgoing and, if appropriately bred and trained, are fearless hounds. For example, Dachies are quite prepared to follow rabbits, snakes and other vermin down burrows with total disregard for their own safety. The characteristic can be traced back more than three hundred years.

Dachshunds are intelligent and clean dogs, and they normally get along well with children and older people. They can also be very stubborn dogs when they put their minds to it. It now seems that a resurgence of the popularity of the dachshund breed is now occurring in Australia. I recently read that dachshunds are now the second most sought after breed of dogs in Australia [after French bulldogs].

I hope that you enjoy the range of Dachie material that I have provided for you to enjoy that follows.

    2. When I sent my earlier message I thought that you were just talking about my Dachshunds blog. I think I misunderstood you. Yes I did visit your site because of praise you gave me about mine and I thought I would like to know a bit more about you and your ideas too. Yes you can use some of my ideas to build upon but if you want to quote some of my blog text I would be grateful if you cite me as the source. I am glad you are keeping in touch.

  3. Many thanks for sharing these types of wonderful blogposts. In addition, the best travel plus medical insurance system can often reduce those concerns that come with touring abroad. A medical crisis can quickly become costly and that’s certain to quickly impose a financial impediment on the family’s finances. Putting in place the excellent travel insurance package prior to leaving is well worth the time and effort. Cheers

    1. Thanks. I do my best to please and entertain my readers like you.
