Dachshund Coat Types

Dachshunds come in Three Coat Types

Short, smooth and shining

With the exception of jaw, eyebrows, and ears, the whole body is covered with a uniform tight, short, thick, rough, hard, outer coat but with finer, somewhat softer, shorter hairs (undercoat) distributed between the coarser hairs.

Sleek, glistening, often slightly wavy hair is longer under the neck and chest, the underside of the body, the ears and behind the legs.
