About This Book

This book is your easy-to-understand primer on Dachshund care. I describe what Dachshunds are, not only in shape, size, and color — the things described in the official breed standard — but also in terms of personality and temperament so that you can decide if a Dachshund is the right dog for you. I help you discover the best ways to find a great Dachshund, and I show you how to take care of your Dachshund from the day you bring him home. I cover housetraining, feeding, pest prevention, vet care, obedience training, and much more. If you have a Dachshund or are considering buying one, this book has all the information you need.

But this book doesn't do everything. For one thing, it isn't a boring reference book. It isn't a textbook on Dachshund history, medical issues, or training (although it covers all those subjects). And it isn't a guide on breeding (which I don't recommend for most pet owners), on showing dogs, or on the complex ins and outs of dog competition (although I do talk about plenty of fun dog sports and activities you can enjoy with your Dachshund). This is a fun book, a sometimes irreverent book, a user-friendly book, and most of all a book that celebrates Dachshunds. You find out who and what they are and how you can make the most of your relationship by choosing the best one for you and taking the best possible care of your new pet.

Dog Owners Handbook

There are over a hundred registered breeds of dogs. Recognizing the type of the dog is basically associated with its breed. A purebred animal belongs to a documented and acknowledged group of unmixed lineage. Before a breed of dog is recognized, it must be proven that mating two adult dogs of the sametype would have passed on their exact characteristics, both appearance and behavior, to their offspring.
