Reviews on

This is a wonderful book which clearly sets out in laymen’s terms the dachshund breed standard, to which the ideal dog should be bred. Ian Seath takes the trouble to explain terms which many writers assume the novice understands, thus producing a handbook which is accessible to all dachshund lovers, and sits very well beside his other book The Dachshund co written with Judy Squires. Thank you Ian more like this please.

This is such a good guide to the Dachshund breed and all owners should have a copy for reference. Great work Ian Seath.
