Dachshunds are a small, stubborn, loyal, and adventurous dog breed. Mike and I (Steph) know from experience. We're the proud dog parents of Django, our 7-year old long-haired dachshund and adventure pup. Django has been all over the United States and Europe with us, and we even named our dog accessories and dog apparel business, DJANGO, after him!
Despite being one of the most popular small dog breeds, dachshunds are often difficult to outfit. It can be challenging to find a dog harness that comfortably and securely fits your wiener dog's broad chest, muscular build, and long frame.
In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we discuss what to look for when choosing a walking harness for your sausage dog. We also examine how often you should exercise your dachshund.
Tumble washable rugs review #2!
It's been over six months since we wrote our first review of Tumble rugs. Since then, our Tumble rugs have been through a lot. We have a rambunctious toddler who is almost 4 years old, a 10 month old baby who is learning he can throw spaghetti, and a low-riding long-haired dachshund who tracks in dirt, mud, and debris after every walk. Our Tumble rugs have seen milk and OJ spills, marker and crayon stains, dirt streaks, marinara splotches, endless dog hair...you name it.
We have 7 Tumble area rugs and runners throughout our home. Based on the location, each of our Tumble rug sees different levels of foot traffic, spills, dirt marks, and dog hair.
In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we provide an updated overview and review of Tumble rugs based on our family's personal and extensive experience with the machine washable rugs.
Frenchies are bright, playful, and adaptable, so it is not surprising they are America's second favorite dog breed.
Despite the breed’s popularity, it is hard to find a dog harness that fits the French bulldog's unique shape. With a barrel chest, square-shaped head, large bat ears, and flat face, many dog harnesses are too tight around the neck or chest. Others are too loose and allow your Frenchie to slip free.
In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we discuss how much exercise your French bulldog needs. We also examine what features to look for when buying a harness for your Frenchie.
