Everyone gets their turn at playing in groups outside in one of the five fenced areas.
My Wirehaired Dachshunds reside in a kennel building that is approximately 2800 sq feet. They share the kennel with a small boarding kennel. The kennel is located on 14 acres in a country setting. This setting gives the dachshunds the advantage of meeting both a variety of other dog breeds, cats and a variety of people.
There are six runs that house the senior citizens. Crates are used to house younger dogs. Puppies and their moms have a separate area to enjoy the privacy of growing up.
Outside Area is 4 feet X 20 feet with 8 feet covered. The runs are pea gravel with a septic drain under the gravel. The puppy run is approximate 20 feet X 17 feet and covered.
DACHSHUNDS NEED EXERCISE. Our dogs are exercised in groups multiple times a day as the weather permits. I feel this is important not only for their mental health, but to keep them in good condition physically. Although dachshunds like to be couch potatos we have to remember that they are hounds. Exercise is very important to keep them from becoming over weight.
