  • Finding a good Dachshund read
  • Surfing the Weiner Webwww.akc.org) has quite a few sites of interest to Dachshund lovers. Have a good look around. You can find the Dachshund breed standard, information on rescue groups, information on Dachshund activities, and plenty of general dog information and news.

    The Dachshund Club of America, Inc. (www.dachshund-dca.org), is the AKC parent club for the breed. You can find a good breeder, get Dachsie information, and more.

    Are you all about the Mini Dachshund? Check out the National Miniature Dachshund Club, Inc., a club devoted to diminutive Dachshunds, at www.dachshund-nmdc.org.

    The Dachshund Friendship Club (www.dachshundfriendshipclub.com) is a fun and non-competitive club based in New York City. It has great resources on its fun Web site, and for those in New York, it has Dachsie events like Dachshund Octoberfest.

    I have so much fun looking at this site. Great pictures! The Dachshund Network (www.thedachshundnetwork.com) has plenty of fun and informative dog-friendly links, as well as a bulletin board.

    I would recommend The Dachshund Rescue Web Page (www.dachshund-rescue.org) even if I didn’t know that it encourages people to buy my book! This site does a great service for rescued Dachshunds. Check it out, and follow its many links.

    Able Dogs (www.abledogs.net) is an e-mail group devoted to people with disabled pets. It started specifically for people with paralyzed Dachshunds but expanded to include many other people whose pets have special needs. Check out the stories, the community, and more. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll be glad you came.

    DODGER (Dachshund Orthopedic Disc Group Email Resource) is a site all about Dachsund disk issues. You can find plenty of great information here, including how to find a veterinary neurologist in your area. Check it out before your Dachshund ever has a problem, and join their Yahoo! list, called Dodgerslist, to join up with a community of fellow Dachshund lovers dealing with orthopedic issues: www.dodgerslist.com.

    The Canadian Dachshund Lovers Page (or Wienerdogs.org) was created by Bob Brennert. This Canadian site is all about Dachshunds. All the info is at www.wienerdogs.org.

    You can go to the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (www.apdt.com) site to find a great trainer. The site is run by a group of trainers devoted to positive training methods.
