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.

I love Dachshunds and support Dachshund Rescue. I created my How To Potty Train A Dachshund ebook when I found out some dachshunds ended up being surrendered simply because they were not house broken. Dachshund Luke travelled with us from Florida to Spain where we stayed in the mountains for 4 years. During that time I started this website and my husband wrote a book! We returned to Florida with a rescue Podenco dog called Puppy and a cat called Kitty Kat. I currently live in Florida with my wonderful husband.

    My vet said that you can bathe them as much as needed. He said that it is a myth that bathing drys their skin. Just use a mild dog shampoo
