Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few breeds trigger as much pride as the Dachshund, as only Dachshund people understand why this breed is superior to all others! Any Dachshund owner will explain it to you, as will author Ingrid Schwartz, an owner of Dachshunds for many generations. This Comprehensive Owners Guide dedicated to Germanys Teckel (or weiner dog, as hes sometimes affectionately called) paints a vivid portrait of this dwarf-sized scenthound originally bred to hunt badger, surely a calling that requires a determined, feisty fellow. Although many Dachshund folk deny it (you cant blame them for their loyalty), Dachshunds may be the most stubborn canines on the planet and theyre not for everyone, even though there are many varieties to choose from. The chapter dedicated to the breeds characteristics discusses not only the breeds two sizes and three coat types but also its comical, intelligent, and determined personality.

New owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a reputable breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, and grooming (all three coat types) are illustrated with photographs of handsome adults and puppies. In all, there are over 135 full-color photographs in this useful and reliable volume. The authors advice on obedience training will help the reader better mold and train into the most well-mannered dog in the neighborhood. The extensive and lavishly illustrated chapter on healthcare provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, preventing and dealing with parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as historical dogs, breeders, or kennels, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and parasite control. Fully indexed.

Synopsis:
