Daug Activity Requirements

Dachshunds are a fun-loving, adventurous, and lively dog that is great for both families and single people. While they are often stereotyped as being lazy and stubborn, Dachshunds are very playful and like to stay active. While a backyard is ideal, Dachshunds can be happy in almost any home environment. They do, however, require a lot of attention and affection. They are a very loyal and caring breed that thrives on human contact. If you are looking for a dog that is content to spend most of their time lounging on the couch, a Dachshund is not the best choice. They do, however, make great companions for people who enjoy the outdoors.
