The Dachshund is an elongated breed of dog, they are very muscular with short legs and a long head and muzzle. The ears are pendent but they are also mobile which add to this breeds adorability. Their coat can be smooth, long, short or wiry. Different colours include black and tan, chestnut, grey, piebald, speckled or harlequin.
Dachshunds are an intelligent breed but couple this with their independence and stubbornness and you have a very difficult breed of dog to train. This breed requires a non coercive method of dog training as if the Dachshund feels that it has been unfairly treated then it will sulk at great lengths.
