Dachshunds - Are They the Right Dog for You?
Think a Dachshund is the perfect dog for you?
If you want a small dog that is loyal, comical, entertaining, makes a keen watchdog, and needs only moderate exercise, then a Dachshund may be the perfect dog for you!
The Dachshund is a short-legged, long-bodied dog breed belonging to the hound family. The standard size dachshund was bred to scent, chase, and flush out badgers and other burrow-dwelling animals, while the miniature dachshund was developed to hunt smaller prey such as rabbits.
Dachshunds are especially prone to having back problems. This may be due to genetics, moving the wrong way, falling or jumping on and off furniture. Dog stairs are recommended for Dachshunds to decrease strains on their back and legs.
If you decide a Dachshund is the perfect pet for your family, check out these dog stairs perfect for Dachshunds so they can reach you on the couch or bed (they call them "low riders" for a reason)!
