What is Daxaid?
Daxaid is about providing support and assistance to dachshund owners on a temporary basis. Help can take many forms – exercising the dogs, supervising them in the garden, popping in for a chat, or providing a home for the dogs for a short time. The owner might perhaps be facing a short spell in hospital or a family emergency, or be incapacitated for a short time. Daxaid can help relieve the worry and stress by providing help with the dogs.
All it takes is a phone call. Daxaid has a growing list of Dachshund owners who are prepared to give their time and effort to help in these situations. You will not have to worry now about the well-being of your dogs. They will be cared for by like-minded people who have indicated in which way they will be able to help in such circumstances.
You might well be able to cope indoors, and just need somebody to exercise the dogs for your period of incapacity. You might be in hospital and need somebody to look after your dogs either at your home or theirs.
This is what is being offered by Daxaid. There has been a fantastic response by the caring people that want to help, this is purely a voluntary act.
