The Ultimate Gift Guide for Dachshund Lovers

Dachshunds (also known as sausage dogs) are known for their kind and loyal nature so it is no surprise that the Dachshund is one of the most popular small dog breeds in the UK. As well as being affectionate and loyal, these little dogs have an average height of just 20-27cm and this could explain why we are a nation of Dachshund lovers! But, aside from accessories for their dog, what should you buy for Dachshund lovers as a gift? Well, as a sausage dog lover myself, I have compiled a list of my top 10 unique gift ideas for sausage dog fans…

5 Fun Facts that will make you a Dachshund Lover 

Maybe you are more of a cat person? Or perhaps you prefer a bigger German Shepherd to a little sausage dog? Choosing a gift for a Dachshund lover will be much easier if you share (or at least understand) their sausage dog love. Before we jump into my 10 unique gift ideas for sausage dog fans, here are a few fun facts, to help you to understand the dachshund lover in your life.

1. Dachshunds don’t know they are short! They have huge personalities and always want to be included, despite their small size sausage dogs won’t be ignored.

2. There isn’t just one type of Dachshund - they come in many varieties. There are two Dachshund sizes (standard and miniature) as well as three different hair types (smooth, wirehaired and longhaired) and Dachshunds also come in a variety of colours, so there is a sausage dog for everyone!

3. Celebrities including Adele and Kylie Jenner love Dashchunds and so did Queen Elizabeth II - if sausage dogs are good enough for a queen, they are definitely good enough for me!

4. The name Dachshund comes from the German word meaning “badger dog” because hysterically, Dachshunds were used to hunt badgers, with their short legs and long bodies allowing them to enter the badger's burrow if required.

5. The oldest living dog is a miniature Dachshund called Funny.

Now that you understand the appeal of these little dogs and you can relate to the Dachshund lover in your life, you will find it much easier to choose a unique sausage dog gift.
