Dachshund Dog Breed Information Information


The dachshund is immediately recognisable dog breeds in the UK. The dachshund has long been a home favourite and is ranked in the Top 20 Most Popular Dogs.


The dachshund tends to cost in the region of £900 (£1300 for KC registered varieties), so if you see dachshund puppies for sale in a newspaper or online do keep this price in mind.


A dachshund is expected to live between 12-13 years on average, is usually around 20-27cm in height and generally weighs in at between 9-12kg.


Dachshunds are challenging to train with an average intelligence and require a moderate of exercise to stay satisfied. They do not require constant company and don't mind being left alone for short periods of time.
