Meet the Dachshund is the first official publication endorsed by the American Kennel Club (AKC) devoted to the world's favorite wiener dog Thanks to the experts at the AKC and the Dachshund Club of America, this volume offers the most accurate and authoritative information available on this breed. Eleven chapters detail the history of the breed, characteristics, and special requirements for owning this colorful hound breed, beautifully illustrated with photos of puppies and adults. A chapter devoted to the purchase and selection of the Doxie puppy gives the reader specific guidance on how to locate a qualified breeder and to recognize a healthy, sound puppy. Two separate chapters serve as a primer to training the puppy--house-training and obedience work, favoring positive-training techniques as the best and most successful way to educate the super-smart, sometimes-stubborn Doxie.
