Dachshund gifts are the perfect way to show your appreciation for these smart, snuggly sausage rolls of love. Dachshunds were bred to hunt—to flush out badgers from underground dens—and can be quite stubborn, determined, surprisingly loud and, um, enthusiastic barkers for their size.
Overall, they have a reputation as being the charming clowns of the canine world and loyal to their pack. Their pet parents are equally loyal; after all, once a Doxie person, always a Doxie person, and most Dachshund parents share their hearts and homes with more than one.

5. “Crusoe, the Celebrity Dachshund: Adventures of the Wiener Dog Extraordinaire” by Ryan Beauchesne
This New York Times bestseller is a collection of sweet true stories, recipes and life advice based on Crusoe, a famous blogging Daschund (yes, really).

Can’t-fail gifts for dog lovers aren’t always that easy to find, but if your giftee is a Doxie devotee, this one’s a no-brainer. The “I Heart My Dachshund” bone magnet from Imagine This Company is printed with high-gloss UV ink designed to stand up to rain on a car’s bumper or metal mailbox. Naturally, it’s eye-catching in the traditional spot as well: the refrigerator door.
A handy spot to hang your pupper’s leash and harness, raincoat (Doxies typically detest wet walks), as well as your keys, this handy Dachshund dog leash and key holder is made of durable powder-coated steel. It also can hold bulkier items, such as towels or baseball hats.
While guinea pigs and Dachshunds probably shouldn’t share a home—due to the Doxie’s strong hunting instincts—many wiener dogs and cats have thrived in one household. Among the Dachsund gifts that would impress a friend who also has a cat, this adorable Dachshund-shaped cat scratching board stands out. The honeycomb-like fabrication helps it hold up, and the tree bark-texture mimics what cats scratch in the wild. Plus, the board doubles as a lounger (for either Doxie or feline) after the included catnip wears off. Imagine the adorable pictures!
Daschunds are a more popular pet than ever; we all seem to know somebody who lives with one (or several). Any one of these eight gift ideas are sure to bring a smile to you and the Doxie parent in your life.
