Description of this Book

The dachshund is a short-legged, long-bodied, hound-type dog breed developed to scent, chase, and flush out badgers and other burrow-dwelling animals. This vintage book contains a comprehensive guide to all things dachshund, including their history, varieties, selection, breeding, training, and much more. The Book of the Dachshund will be of considerable utility to owners and breeders, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: Pre-war History , The Smooth Dachshund-Post-war Period , The Standard of Points for the Smooth Dachshund , British History of the Long-haired Dachshund , The Miniature Dachshund , General Management , Exercise , Clothing , Feeding , Grooming , etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on dog breeding.
