I am looking to adopt a long haired dachsie. How often do they need hair cuts? Can someone tell me what it takes to take care of a long hair? Thanks

Hi and Welcome to the Hotdog Blog! Longhaired Dachshunds should NEVER be trimmed. They are very easy to maintain with a thorough brushing every day or so. Trust me, they're so wonderful and cuddly that like me, you won't be able to keep your hands off your wiener! He doesn't shed even a 10th as much as our shorthair Annabel.

All joking aside. We adopted our Brownie at age 2 and he arrived at our doorstep over-washed and freshly clipped and VERY BADLY SO. It has taken nearly 3 years (it will be 3 years in February) for his coat to grow back in properly.

Here is a sample of Before and After.

Funny, I just noticed my posted stated it was my first post. I have posted before, maybe as many as 50 times.

Anyway a long haired never needs cut? Just wash and brush? Glad I asked. Thanks

I have seen many longhair's cut before. Their hair tends to grow back in a little poofy and there's a chance that it will not grow back in the same condition it was, so it could be a lot shorter, coarser, lighter, etc. Apparently it's not all that common but it's something to think about if you're going to clip.

If you don't have the time to groom/brush every day or every other day then you may want to consider clipping. In the end you get a doxie that looks smooth on the body but still has a flag on the tail, feathering on the legs and nice long hair on the ears. If you decided to get it done check with the groomer your thinking about and ask if they've done longhaired doxies before, then ask for a reference.

I have three mini longs, I groom them thoroughly once per week, and the longer hair on ears and tails at least twice more concentrating on the longhair where the ear rubs against the head,matted bits can form there very quickly.

The paw hair is trimmed monthly as are the nails. No other part needs to be cut provided they are groomed as mentioned. Dachsies don't like having their paws touched so get them used to you touching the paws when they are lying by you, this will help when it comes to the pedicure later.

Long haired dachsies don't get their full coat till they are 3 or 4 years old, the type of coat will depend on if there are only long haired dachsies in their pedigree,this will produce the better coat than if there are smooth coats mixed in.

Here is a pic of 4 mini long dachsies Ages 4,3,2yrs and 18 months old, the eldest belongs to my Mum

Good Luck with getting a dachsie.

i am a dog groomer and a happy owner of 3 longhaired dachshunds too. you never have to trim a dachshunds hair on there body except there feet and a sanitary
(peepee and butt area) if you shave the hair on a longhaired doxie the hair alwas grows back looking horrible!! i would never do it! but the hair in between the toepads and on the top of there feet will get alittle long if not cared for monthly! you can also trim with scissors the hair on the ears and tail if you like it looking alittle shorter but never shave! i hope this helps alittle if you want step by step and other things you can email me i would be happy to help. you can also just bring your new baby to the groomers once a month and just say feet and sanitary trim and thats all u need to say! good luck!
