Training a wire-haired dachshund for hunting

Wire-haired dachshunds are known as great hunters with a very independent nature and strong character. And while they have a reputation for being stubborn and not exactly friendly, in the hands of a good owner, they become the smartest and sweetest companions. And Christin Geuting, a representative of Bresser GmbH, our German distributor, is certainly one of those people who bring the best out of their dogs. So, without further ado, let’s see what she tells us about her wire-haired dachshund Trude.

First things first – why did you choose this particular breed?

When I was a little girl, we had a wire-haired dachshund named Ben. Unfortunately, we had to give Ben away at that time because my brother had developed a very strong allergy to animal hair. After that, it was always clear to me that I would have a wire-haired dachshund at some point.
