Daschund Puppies For Sale: Why Buy?
Daschund puppies are short-legged, elongated dogs belonging to the hound family. Daschund puppies were originally bred to scent, chase and flush out animals such as badgers and rabbits. Today, they are far more popular with buyers as companion pets.
Daschunds originate from Germany, and the name can literally be translated as ‘badger dogs’. In terms of their appearance, Daschund puppies will be long-bodied and muscular, with short, stubby legs.
As these dogs have been bred for digging over the years, their paws are surprisingly large and shaped like a paddle. Other common features include a deep chest and a long snout. The colouring of Daschund puppies can vary, from single colouring to spotted colours.
These particular puppies are available in three sizes – standard, miniature and ‘rabbit’ – although the latter size is not recognised in the UK. A miniature Daschund will weigh less than 5kg – you can find miniature Daschund puppies for sale on Dogs and Puppies. A standard Daschund puppy will reach a mature weight of around 7-13kg.
Daschund puppies will be extremely playful in nature, although owners should be cautious with these particular puppies around other animals – they like nothing more than the thrill of the chase. Prospective owners should also be prepared for a sometimes challenging training process, as these dogs can be a little stubborn. Therefore, regular obedience training needs to be carried out from a very young age. These dogs can also be excessive barkers if the behaviour is not nipped in the bud quickly, so read our guide on how to train a dog not to bark if you’ve committed to the decision to buy a Daschund. However, all in all, Daschund puppies will build an incredible bond and loyalty to their owner and have a high level of emotional intelligence.
