Good with Kids:
The long-haired Dachshund originates from Germany and has many similar characters related to the Dachshund class. They require only occasional grooming. They are also brave and friendly and they need lots of exercise
Country of origin:
Small dog breeds.
The Dachshund is brave, has a mind of its own, is vigilant, intelligent, with a good sense of humour, lively, sociable, and playful. The long-haired variety has a gentler nature than its smooth-haired family member. It has been suggested that this is due to the crossing with Spaniels and Irish Setters (to achieve the long hair).
Hound dog breeds (AKC)
The family is number one with this Dachshund too, though they are friendlier towards strangers than the smooth-haired.
They get on well with children provided their first youthful experiences with them were positive ones.
They usually get along with other dogs but the contact with other animals can be problematical-they remain hunting dogs. Cats will be tolerated provided they have learned to live with them early but do not expect any affection in the relationship.
The long-haired Dachshund is most often seen with a plain deep chestnut coat, in reddish-brown, and black and tan.
This Dachshund is happy with an occasional grooming, giving those places where tangles can form special attention. If necessary clip excess hair growth between the pads of the feet. Keep the claws short.
Long-haired Dachshunds are easier to train than smooth-haired ones but because it too has a mind of its own, the training needs to be patient and you will constantly need to feel your way with this dog.
