For visitors who want to spend a bit more time finding out about the breed (and other breeds, if you must), then a visit to the Discover Dogs section will be a great starting point. all six varieties of Dachshund will be represented and you can speak with knowledgeable owners about the breed. There will be lots of opportunities for Dachshund cuddles too.
Finally, for the shopaholics among you, Crufts is crammed full of trade stands with everything you could possibly want for your doggy lifestyle.
