It is recommended that Dachshunds be taken for a walk at least once per day for a duration of 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the animal’s age, breed, and size. Furthermore, it is beneficial to provide these young canines with a spacious, enclosed garden where they can play, exercise, and explore freely. This will allow for optimal physical activity and help to maintain their overall health and well-being.
Dachshunds are known for being loyal, playful, and affectionate. However, they can also be stubborn and independent, which requires proper training and socialisation.

At Country Style Dachshunds, we take great pride in the socialisation of our puppies. We adhere to the industry standard of 8 weeks of age for pick up, but we also recognise that each puppy has its own unique development trajectory. To ensure the well-being of each animal, we evaluate each puppy individually to determine if they are ready to leave us at 8, 9 or 10 weeks of age. Our goal is to produce well-balanced and content puppies that are prepared for their new homes. We believe that this approach sets our business apart and provides our clients with the highest quality of service.
