We can also offer a reliable Service of animal delivery. Very nice and sweet staff. They love animals and give tenderness and full care to the puppy during fly.
We used Service several times and we and new owners are very satisfied.
How it works. All delivery details and purchase tickets are carried out in advance. One of the most important rules is the fastest flight. The Service selects flights that the puppy will flies to his owners as soon as possible. Delivery date agreed and fixed. We drive personally to Boryspil airport in appointed delivery date and time, and meet with the delivery man (nanny) and give him a puppy from hand to hand. The new owner meets the delivery man (nanny) at the previously agreed airport and picks up the puppy. The puppy gets full and topflight care during the flight. Puppies arrive almost without stress. The only one stress there, is leaving from beloved home. But this pass right away as soon as the puppy falls into the hands of his most loving owner!
First of all, must to say that each dog is unique. And a lot depends on the environment where the dog lives, training and care by owner. Here we will talk in general about the difference between the female and the male.
Females may display alpha behaviors. The females are, as a result, more independent, stubborn, and territorial than their male counterparts. The females are much more intent upon exercising their dominance by participating in alpha behaviors.
Males, on the other hand, are usually more affectionate, exuberant, attentive, and more demanding of attention. They are very attached to their people. They also tend to be more steadfast, reliable, and less moody. They are more outgoing, more accepting of other pets, and take quicker to children. Most boys are easily motivated by food (how true!!) and praise, and so eager to please that training is easy. However, males can be more easily distracted during training, as males like to play so often.
And no matter what age, he is more likely to act silly and more puppy-like, always wanting to play games. Boys are fun loving until the day they die.
Boys do get bigger than girls, but only by an average of 1-2 inches and 2-3 pounds in the Dachshund. In the Dachshund a variety of sizes can be found regardless of sex. The difference between sizes and sexes is minimal, if bred correctly, and for improving the breed according to the standard.
Females tend to be more reserved or dignified as they age.
And while the female will usually come to you for attention, when she's had enough, she will move away. While boys are always waiting for your attention and near at hand.
Females are usually less distracted during training, as she is more eager to get it over with, and get back to her comfy spot on the couch. The female is less likely to wage a dominance battle with YOU, but she can be cunning and resourceful in getting her own way.
The female also has periods of being 'in heat' unless she is spayed. Seasonal heats can be a month long nightmare not just for the female, but you and every male dog in the neighborhood. Did we mention that the seasonal heats can happen TWICE a year?
During this time, she will have a bloody discharge that attracts male dogs. The discharge is messy and can be smelly. You’ll want to keep them off light-colored carpet and furniture. Dog diapers can help with this issue.
Female dogs in heat cannot be walked in public because male dogs may become aggressive in their desire to mate. To avoid an unintended pregnancy, you’ll want to take precautions to keep male dogs away from your female dog in heat. It is not uncommon for male dogs to jump fences in order to mate.
Whether or not this inconvenience is a big deal for you is a personal matter.
Male dogs do not have seasons, and unless neutered, they can be sexually active all year long.
Once an intact male dog reaches sexual maturity, he may begin to mark, mount and roam. Neutered male and female dogs may also exhibit these normal canine behaviors, but typically to a lesser degree.
The instinct to mate is strong, so you’ll need to take precautions to keep your dog from roaming in search of mating opportunities.
It’s important to think about whether or not you will alter (spay or neuter) your dog before you choose between a girl or boy dog.
Sometimes there are those things that a person can’t really explain. If you have a choice just listen to your heart before you make your final selection.
Our main goal is to provide you enough information to form a healthy, long term relationship with your new family member.
For starters, the first few days are crucial to your bond with your new dachshund puppy. I know how excited you are about getting a new puppy, but try to keep things calm and low key during those first few days. You may want to fight the urge to show him off to everyone you know on his first days home. The best advice we can give you is to keep your puppy to yourselves at first. It gives you time to form a strong bond with your new puppy and gives him time to learn his new surroundings. This is a very exciting time in his young life. Two weeks is the puppy's adaptation period, getting used to the new home, which in itself is stressful.
Here are a few dachshund puppy care tips that may help you prepare for your new puppy!
Dachshund puppies, for the most part, are very playful, lively. They must be handled very carefully at home and on the first walks. Dachshund Puppies are very inquisitive! Naturally, they will explore their new environment. Please have a look around before you bring the puppy home and put up anything that may harm him.
Leave only puppy's toys on the floor. You cannot play with a rag with a puppy, he will not understand the difference between a rag and a curtain or tablecloth, and will tear it. It is very necessary to carefully monitor the electrical wires so no way stretched across the floor and not hanging in a place accessible to the puppy. Also inaccessible should be: medicines, chemicals, breakable things. Many indoor plants are poisonous. Check and remove the dangerous plants to inaccessible area to the dog.
Keep a constant eye on your new puppy when he is out playing in the house.
Do not lift or pull the puppy by his paws, you can easily dislocate the joints or damage the ligaments. Always lift up the puppy under the chest and hold him securely, excluding falling. It is better to squat to him more often and do not lift him without extreme need.
There is nothing more important than making sure your puppy eats right in the first few days at his new home. Your puppy will come with a free sample of puppy food. Please use this and only this for the first couple days. It’s familiar to them and they have been eating it for quite a while. If you choose to feed a different brand, gradually mix it in with the provided food until the puppy adjusts. Will the best if you make a plan for the gradual mixing of food for 2 weeks.
Puppy will need to feed 3-4 times in a day at first depending on age. It is necessary to try to feed the puppy at the same hours. Then the puppy’s stomach will learn to work at certain hours, and this will facilitate the training of the puppy for cleanliness. The usual regimen favorably affects digestion and normal bowel movement. Do not feed your pet before hard exercise and travel to avoid vomiting.
The puppy should always have a separate bowl with clean fresh water.
Also, keep in mind that if you already have pets in the house they may need a little time to get to know the puppy before they feel comfortable enough to allow him to eat near them. Please spend much time with him until he gets used to his new house and his new people.
About a "place" for sleep
Up until this point, your puppy has lived in a very sheltered and loving home environment. Our puppies are used to having brothers and sisters to cuddle with at night. Don’t be surprised if he whines a little for the first few nights. Just be patient and give him a little attention. He’ll get the hang of it soon enough. The puppy needs a little time to adjust to his new bedtime and waking time.
When you have a little puppy, you need to arrange for him a “place” where he can sleep. The "place" should be in a dry, but not very warm room. Excessive heat affects the puppy badly, you should not get carried away with heat. Avoid drafts to “place” your puppy. The “place” for the first time may be a small, shallow sunbed, with a bed-mattress and a small lightweight blanket, which must sometimes be washed. Puppies willingly go to their place with all the toys. The little puppy sleeps a lot. Never wake a puppy.
Many dachshund owners allow their dachshunds to sleep in their beds. Dachshunds love to sleep under a blanket and on a pillow. Our dachshunds also sleep with us in bed. You decide where your dachshund will sleep. But you will need to make sure that the puppy does not fall out of bed. It may damage him.
As soon as puppy wake up he will need to go potty!!
It is clear that the baby will pee and pop at home for some time, wherever he wants. For someone, this stops at 3 months, and the puppy begins to endure and beg to back yard. Someone can poty at home up to 5-7 months. Here a lot will depend on you: how often you will take him outside, how you will closely monitor the baby and feel when it's time.
As rule, puppy goes to the toilet after sleeping, eating and playing, so at this time it is good to take the puppy out to back yard or in the place allotted in the house where the diaper or old towel is laid out.
Joyfully praise him and treat him to delicious food when he did his toilet. You can not scold puppy for puddles and piles.
A puppy can pee and pop at home for several months, even if he is already learned to the back yard. Teach your puppy patiently and consistently.
Need to vaccinate a dog only in a veterinary clinic.
There are four shots in the series of puppy complex vaccinations and one rabies vaccination. If you buy your puppy here at Secret Alpha Centauri he will always have had his first two sets complex vaccinations before he leaves our home. Sometimes even more depending on the age of the puppy at the time. And rabies vaccination. Don’t worry, we’ll make sure you know all of the details on your new puppy and also about next vaccinations.
Remember that before vaccination it is necessary to give anthelmintic.
A 2-week quarantine period is required after vaccination, during which contact with other dogs should be avoided. Active immunity develops 14 days after vaccination.
Treatment against worms, fleas and ticks
Give anthelmintic as a preventive measure every three months and 7-10 days before vaccination.
Treatment against ticks and fleas
Ticks and fleas can be carriers of various diseases. One of the most dangerous diseases is pyroplasmosis. If the dog is not provided with veterinary care in time, the death of your pet may occur on the 3rd day of illness. Therefore, I recommend treated monthly, regardless of the time of year. For country trips, use the spray "on top" of the drops.
Your veterinarian may advise you on the names of anthelmintic and against fleas and ticks.
On walks you need to be very careful with your puppy, especially at first. Walk must be on a leash and in a collar. Walking without a leash threatens the puppy (and an adult dog) with death under the wheels of the car. Puppy may unlisten you because of his playfulness and curiosity, and run away from you. There are a lot of such cases. For walks you should set the mode, schedule. It is enough for an adult dog to walk twice a day, the puppy needs more walks. It is better to get acquainted with unfamiliar dogs gradually. Aggressive dogs are best avoided, but non-aggressive dogs can be played. Walking should be a pleasure for puppy.
A small puppy is curious, wants to know everything and see everything. It is very important that the owner calmly, without frightening the puppy, introduce him to the whole world around him. If the puppy is frightened of something, he needs to prove that there is nothing to worry about, go with him to the object that frightens the puppy and let him smell it. First of all, you need to let the puppy understand that the owner will always protect him from "trouble", save him and on the contrary, let him understand any troubles can be expected from an outsider. The puppy assimilates this position quickly, and the owner will be rewarded with the love and trust of his puppy.
Claws: From early childhood, the puppy is taught to trim its claws. The first time we makes it at six to seven days old by manicure scissors. Then, as the claws grow back, about once every seven, ten days, they are cut off with special nail clippers.
Up to 5-6 months - 1 time per week;
From 6 months - 1 time in 10-15 days. Older than a year - once every 2-4 weeks.
For more information on clipping, click here.
Teeth: You need to carefully monitor the condition of your puppy's teeth. Especially during the change of teeth - from 3.5-4 months to 6.5-7 months. At this time, the puppies are very restless, their gums are sore and itchy. If milk teeth have not fallen out on their own, you must consult a vet to remove them.
Don’t pull toys from the jaws of the puppy, it can damage the teeth and bite.
To prevent the occurrence of tartar, the dog’s teeth (after changing the milk for permanent - 6-7 months) should be cleaned with special toothpastes sold in veterinary pharmacies. It is necessary to brush puppy's teeth as soon as they become dirty. The teeth should be white and healthy.
Ears: A healthy dog has almost always clean ears. But, if you see a little dirt in puppy's ears, then you can clean it with a cotton swab moistened with a special liquid for cleaning the ears. This procedure also needs to be taught from childhood.
What to do with the New Puppy Monday Morning?
The first day back to work after you get your new dachshund puppy can be pretty stressful. Don’t worry, he’s going to be okay! Just keep these tips in mind. A bathroom or kitchen with tiled slippery floors is not suitable for a puppy! The puppy cannot be put in crate! The puppy cannot be put 10 hours straight without food or water!
If you have someone close by that can look in on your new puppy during the day, that would be great.
You can use a special enclosure for the safety of your puppy. Put a bowl of water in it. Put his sunbed with blanket in there. Put an old towel like a toilet. As he gets older and more able to hold it, he will do all the toilet cases in the backyard. You can put there a rope for nibbling or a durable ball. Do not leave toys that are easy to crack!
Before you leaving home, take a good walk your puppy. Feed him just before you leave home. Then the tired and full-fed puppy will sleep for a long time.
Take your puppy to the backyard immediately after your return home. It will be better for him to get used to this and in time he will be able to endure and wait for your return.
Teaching your pets to Accept the New Puppy
Whether you have a cat or a dog at home, please keep in mind that your existing pet may need a little time to adjust to having a new puppy, too. Should you have trouble, just have a little patience! It is well worth the time invested! Your existing pet and your new puppy are going to be best friends in the end! It is very good to introduce the puppy to your pet outside the house, for example, in the backyard. I would never recommend just taking the puppy home and placing him on the floor to make acquaintances with your pet on his own. An older dog or cat may hurt the puppy if introduced too quickly. Try holding the puppy’s tail toward the pet to let them have a smell of the puppy. No matter how embarrassed you may be about “butt sniffing”.. it’s the language of animals. Don’t push your pet. Let him warm up to the puppy in his own time. Spend a little “alone time” with your pet, too. To reassure him that he has not been replaced.
In our experience, most pets lead much happier and fuller lives when they have another pet around the house to spend time with.
Teaching the puppy to do new things can both be the funniest thing you ever saw..and the most stressful thing you ever tried. Wearing clothes, sit, stay, etc. Again.. a little patience goes a long way. The best advice I can give on this subject is to try a little at a time. Puppies will generally accept things better if introduced to them a little every day. (Versus, for hours on end until he finally gets it right.) It’s no secret that dachshunds can be a stubborn. The trick is to be more stubborn than them! Use a lot of verbal encouragement and praise.
Dachshunds are generally emotional little dogs and once they figure out that they can make you happy by performing this latest command, they’ll learn quickly. Don’t forget that no dog will love you more than your dachshund!
Do not forget that you can call or write to us at any time. We will be happy to answer you any questions and give a tips. Sometimes, even a few tips are nice to know.
As you can imagine, we have formed an enormous bond with this little baby. We watched him come into this world, loved and cared for him every day of his life in our home! Please don’t forget to message us and send a picture every once in a while! We really appreciate it.
Congratulations on your new member of your family and your faithful friend forever!
God Bless You!
“Dachshund” is a German word meaning “badger dog,” and the breed’s German history goes back some 600 years. And, as the breed name suggests, the Dachshund was developed to enthusiastically dig his way into a badger den and dispatch its occupant. The Dachshund’s long, low body was custom-made for this dirty subterranean work.
For a dog of any size, a badger is a formidable adversary, weighing anywhere from 25 to 40 pounds, with razor-sharp teeth and claws. The cleverness, courage, perseverance, and strength that are hallmarks of today’s Dachshund were first bred into his long-ago ancestors to best equip them for battling a deadly foe. The little dog’s surprisingly loud, houndy bark is also a throwback to his working roots: It allowed the Dachshund’s above-ground human hunting partner to mark his hound’s underground location.
In addition to the breed’s short, smooth coat, selective breeding produced types with wire coats for work in thorny brier patches, and long coats for cold climates. Dachshunds of various sizes were bred to work on different kinds of quarry. Packs of Dachshunds, according to breed authorities, were often used on wild boar. By the late 1800s, the process of standardizing the breed according to size, coat, and color varieties was well underway.
The Miniature Wire-Haired Dachshund breed is a long-backed, short-legged dog of diminutive height. While small, the Dachshund is still muscular and powerfully built with a deep, broad chest and well-developed forelegs. He has a short, harsh coat with bushy eyebrows and a beard. The coat comes in a range of colours (see the breed standard for full details). The adult Miniature Dachshund weighs 4.5-5kg.
The Miniature Wire-Haired Dachshund can be very independent and needs kind, consistent, patient training. Early socialisation is required in order to acclimate Dachshunds to children, strangers and other animals. They are a breed that becomes quite attached to their family and usually one family member in particular, but they can be reserved with strangers.
The most common health problem seen in the Miniature Wire-Haired Dachshund is related to their body shape, making them prone to spinal disorders. Heart disease is also relatively common in the breed. As with many other breeds, various inherited eye disorders can be seen, and breeding dogs should be routinely eye tested.
This dog needs a minimum of half an hour's daily exercise. Before letting him off-lead, do ensure his recall is reliable, as his hunting instincts can drive him to run off in pursuit of a scent or quarry. Bear in mind that Dachshunds were bred to 'go to ground' and can dig under many types of fencing, so check your garden's security.
Toy-sized dogs have a fast metabolism, meaning they burn energy at a high rate, although their small stomachs mean that they must eat little and often. Small-breed foods are specifically designed with appropriate levels of key nutrients and smaller kibble sizes to suit smaller mouths. This also encourages chewing and improves digestion.
Miniature Wire-haired Dachshunds need their coats plucked two to three times a year. It is best to let an experienced groomer pluck the coat unless the breeder can teach a new owner how to do it. Make sure the coat is plucked/stripped and not clipped. Clipping will ruin the texture of the coat.
