Who is named after who? Is the dachsund named after the hot dog or is the hot dog named after the dachshund? Believe it or not the hot dog is named after a dachshund! Orginally hot dogs were called "dachshund" or "little-dog" sausage because of their slim shape that is similar to the dachshund. It was created and named by a German butcher, Johann Georghehner a dachshund owner who in the late 1600's traved to Frankfurt to promote the product. However there are multiple claims to who actually created and named the hot dog, this is one of the most widely accepted answer to the question.
Dachshunds also know as "weenier dogs", "hotdogs", or "sausage dogs". A lot of names for a little dog. They come in all colors most commonly black and tan, penny red or dapple. Hair type includes long, short and wire.The word dachshund in German means "badger hound" because they were bred to track burrowing animals including the badger. Dachshunds are very clever and in general are pretty quick learners.
Feed a minimal number of treats a day and try to avoid table scraps. If you give you dachshund "people food" don't give them the fat off the steak you were eating, generally if it is unhealthy for you to eat, it is unhealthy for your dog to eat. Dachshunds are prone to back problems and obesity is the leading factor.
As for daily feeding this is the basic guideline but it can vary dramatically depending on temperature and exercise:
Minis (7-12lbs) and the Rabbit-Sized (under 6lbs): should be be fed about 3/4 cups or less.
Tweenies (13-16lbs) and Small Standards (17-29 lbs): should be fed around 1 cup.
Large Standards (+30lbs): can be fed up to 2 cups if they are active.
