Must-Haves for All Dachshund Owners


Dachshund Doghouse Pet Shop


Doghouse have compiled a list of our best sellers that Sausage Dog owners just can't seem to get enough of...


Sausage Dogs are some of our most popular canine customers, we love seeing them wander into our shop to sniff out their favourite treats and toys. Admittedly sometimes we almost miss them, all the way down there, with those tiny legs! 

Their short legs and long body make them a uniquely shaped dog, meaning accessories often have to be personalised to their breed. So you may be thinking, what do I need to buy for my Dachshund? Well we’ve put together a list of must-haves for any Dachshund owner, perfect for treating your dog on their birthday or even 'just because'. We’ve had fantastic feedback from Sausage Dog owners on these products so we know you’ll love them too.
