Overview
Meet the Dachshund is the first official publication endorsed by the American Kennel Club (AKC) devoted to the world s favorite wiener dog Thanks to the experts at the AKC and the Dachshund Club of America, this volume offers the most accurate and authoritative information available on this breed. Eleven chapters detail the history of the breed, characteristics, and special requirements for owning this colorful hound breed, beautifully illustrated with photos of puppies and adults. A chapter devoted to the purchase and selection of the Doxie puppy gives the reader specific guidance on how to locate a qualified breeder and to recognize a healthy, sound puppy. Two separate chapters serve as a primer to training the puppy--house-training and obedience work, favoring positive-training techniques as the best and most successful way to educate the super-smart, sometimes-stubborn Doxie. Chapters on home care, safety, feeding, and healthcare present indispensable information for new dog owners.
As an official publication of the AKC, Meet the Dachshund also explains the many vital programs offered by the country s leading canine organization to all pet dog owners, including the S.T.A.R. Puppy and the Canine Good Citizen programs, as well as descriptions of various dog sports such as conformation showing, agility, obedience and more. A detailed resources section offers recommendations for websites, books, periodicals, and club affiliate programs, all of great interest to responsible new dog owners.
