Why we love miniature dachshunds

What does John Lewis Pet Insurance include?
Pet insurance could give you peace of mind if your miniature dachshund were to become unwell. John Lewis Pet Insurance offers six different Vet Fee cover levels, ranging from £2,000 - £12,000 per year.
Our Pet Insurance includes:
Annual Online Health Checks
Provided by vetfone™, one of the UK’s most trusted pet advice services, who can help you to spot any potential health issues. This is a service to complement your normal annual physical check up with your vet.
*For dental care up to your chosen Vet Fee limit. If your pet has a dental check every 12 months: once it has had its first check and your vet has done any necessary work, should your pet suffer from tooth decay or gum disease before the next 12-month check, or if tooth decay or gum disease are seen at the time of the next check, we pay. If your pet doesn’t have a check every 12 months, or if the work required is not done, we will only pay;
1) For teeth or gums if they are damaged in an accident,
2) If an underlying illness causes tooth decay or gum disease, or
3) To remove teeth as treatment of an illness which is not gum disease or tooth decay.
Miniature dachshunds are minimal shedders, but they do shed a little. How much exactly depends on the type of fur they have; long-haired dachshunds will shed more than their wire-haired relatives.
This can vary depending on your dog's age and energy level, but most young dachshunds can walk for an hour or more each day. The older your pooch gets, the less they may enjoy walking, so you should adjust your walks accordingly.
Most dachshunds will stop growing in height around their first birthday, but they may continue to gain weight up until they turn 2.
