Dachshunds are moderate shedders, relatively clean, and have little or no body odor. The breed’s grooming needs vary with the three coat types. Smooth-coated Dachshunds are somewhat “wash and wear,” needing little beyond a wipe with the Hertzko Microfiber Pet Bath Towel or Pet Grooming Mitt & Fur Remover to look dapper. Longhaired Dachshunds may require more frequent brushing with the Hertzko Self-Cleaning Slicker Brush, depending on the thickness of the coat. The Wirehaired coat can be plucked or hand-stripped several times a year to look its best, but beyond that is easy to maintain between groomings with occasional trimming of the beard and eyebrows and brushing or combing once or twice a week. All Dachshunds should have their nails trimmed every month using either the Hertzko Professional Nail Clipper & Trimmer or Hertzko Electric Pet Nail Grinder.
