Taking Care of Your Dachshund

It takes a lot of patience to own and pet a dachshund. They have this headstrong character, but I guarantee you having one is priceless. They are loyal and loving, and there’ll be no dull moment having them around.

Here are some tips of how you can take care of your Doxie:

 

GROOMING

I have struggled for years finding the best dog shampoo for my doxie. I have tried different brands of dog shampoo, to name a few I have tried Fresh and Clean oatmeal shampoo,Nova Pink Shampoo with Amitraz, Bearing Dog Shampoo. However in spite all the effort my furbabies still suffered from spots and itchiness. Until I finally discovered the benefits of Virgin Coconut Oil. Now we are itch and spot free with our Furry Kind Natural Coconut Shampoo by Human Nature.

Benefits of Virgin Coconut Oil for dogs:

For the ears and nail grooming we regularly visit our trusted pet shop in Pasay, Pet Passion.  We also comb their hair on a daily basis to keep the natural shine.

Occasionally we use dog clothes specially if the weather is cold, we want to make sure that we keep them warm. I make them their DIY dog clothes from old socks.

 

FOOD and HEALTH

We consistently used dog food to supplement their diet. We are using Pedigree for small breed. We have no problem feeding them as our furbabies loved them. Occasionally we give them  pork, beef and chicken. For special occasions we bake them a dog friendly cake using whole wheat flour and banana. They just love it!

Dachshunds have short legs and long back, because of this they are prone to back issues. We make sure that carry them the right way and give them an environment where they don’t have to leap / jump. We have made them their comfortable corner with a DIY dog bed.
