:dogwink:There are three different varieties of Dachshunds, the long-haired, the wire-haired, and the smooth-haired, all of which are average shedders. The long- and wire-haired Dachshunds require daily brushing. In addition, the wire-haired should be professionally trimmed twice a year. The smooth-haired Dachshund should be regularly groomed using a damp cloth to rubdown his coat. All three should have their ears checked regularly for signs of infection or inflammation.
