Dachshund Care and Grooming
Dachshund Care and Grooming is reasonable easy. Dachshund coats can simply be wiped down with a warm wet cloth, so due to their small size, the time involved is minimal. Even the longhaired variety just needs regular brushing and de-knotting.
However, they do need occasional baths – Dachshunds love to roll in anything that smells. The hunting dog instinct to disguise their own scent makes all the smelliest, deadliest things on the ground irresistible for a good roll in.
Although they love to roll in smelly things, they are often not very keen on water or baths.
If your Dachshund is still a puppy now is a good time to get them used to bathing. Do not over do it – perhaps every couple of months give them a quick bath.
