The Mini Long Haired Dachshund will enjoy half an hour to an hour of slow exercise per day, with games, training and fun activities on top. A happy and fulfilled Mini Long Haired Dachshund will then be happy to warm your lap or feet, but a bored, lonely or under-amused dog will be unhappy, noisy and difficult to live with.
A variety of interesting walking routes is a must, with secure places for off lead fun – remember this is a hunting dog with all the same instincts of their larger relatives, including the desire to go down holes and see who is at home! A secure garden and training a strong and reliable recall is vital! They should however always be exercised with caution as their shape will prohibit jumping, stairs or sharp twists and turns for fear of injury.
