As a recent owner of Dachshunds (a male and two females)with the intent to breed each female at least once, this was one of the most informant books I have read. There are lots of good books available, but I found this to have most of the information under one cover.

I was new to the dachshund breed when I came a cross one that needed to be rescued. Although I had dogs all my life, I always had big dogs. I felt I needed information about the breed to help me know the breed. This book help me with the information I needed.

I have looked through many different dog books over the years and highly recommend Barron's as the most comprehensive, informative, easy to read and reference. In order to understand our canine companions, we must know how their instincts developed over centuries of evolution; learning how to accept and/or curb those instincts goes a long way towards insuring a successful relationship between pet and owner. Plus, the Barron's books are written in such a way that even the non-reader is drawn back to complete the book cover-to-cover.
