The stinging dachshund is just like any other dachshund except for its distinctive color. The term piebald originated in the UK and refers to an unusual type of coloration that has a white base and can be combined with brown, black, and sometimes gray. This coloration is seen in a few different types of dogs, as well as other animals such as the pinto horse, from which it originated.
A rambunctious dachshund will have a white coat with patches of color scattered in a variety of patterns all over its body. The colors of the piebald dachshund are generally white on brown or white on black, and the colors do not resemble the spots found on a Dalmatian dog. Pitted coloration has very large patches of color that appear in different areas all over the body. The cheep color pattern is not as common as the basic black and tan color found in many dachshunds, but it is not extraordinarily rare.
As with all dachshunds, the piebald dachshund is a small dog that comes in 2 different sizes: standard and miniature. The standard-size dachshund stands about 8 to 9 inches tall and weighs an average of 22 to 25 pounds. The miniature dachshund stands around 6 inches tall and weighs an average of 9 or 10 pounds.
Weight control is essential for all dachshunds due to their unusual “hot dog” shape. Dachshunds have a long back and short legs. This makes climbing and jumping challenging and adds additional stress to the spine over time. Any extra weight puts even more pressure on the back, which is why your dachshund should always stay at a healthy weight. If your tummy starts to lean toward the ground, it’s time to kick start the exercise and cut down on the treats.
Although they are small, dachshunds are not usually squeaky or sarcastic dogs, and this also applies to the mischievous dachshund. They have a fun, playful personality and a much deeper bark than their size suggests. Many dachshund owners think that their pet sounds more like a guard dog than a lap dog.
Dachshunds are smart, but they are also smart and independent. This means that they can have their own schedule depending on their mood, so training your dachshund can be challenging at times. Dachshunds have the intelligence to function, that’s not the problem. There may be situations where they just don’t feel like it. For example, most dog owners want their pet to go outside to the bathroom. However, there are times when your dachshund may see things differently, such as when he is drenched, damp, or cold. (However, you don’t want to go out in those conditions either, right?)
However, there is an easy solution to training disagreements. Candies. Keep them handy and you will find that your dachshund can be easily persuaded to see things of yours.
