In this video, we meet two of the six Dachshund varieties. Sue Seath keeps standard wire-haired and miniature smooth-coated Dachshunds. She both breeds and shows them.
The standard Dachshund was bred to hunt badger and fox and the miniatures for hunting rabbit, and they are used to this day for tracking. This means that they can 'go hunting' when off lead, and can have a strong prey drive for small animals.
