Mike and I (Steph) welcomed our long-haired dachshund Django into our lives in late 2015. Since then, we've acquired a ton of dachshund-themed goods. Some of these wiener dog items have been gifts from family and friends. Others I've bought myself because... well... a dachshund lover can never have enough sausage dog gear right??
With the holiday season now upon us, Mike and I have compiled our all-time favorite dachshund-themed goods for every member of the family. We included Dachshund Gifts for Her, Dachshund Gifts for Him, Dachshund Gifts for Children, Dachshund Gifts for the Home, and Dachshund Gifts for the Christmas Tree.

When we first got 10 week old Django, Mike and I (Steph) would take him outside every 2-3 hours for bathroom breaks. Most of these trips consisted of Django sitting in the middle of a busy NYC sidewalk and staring down strangers until they came over to pet him. We met so many wonderful owners and fans of dachshunds. Surprisingly, so many of these New Yorkers had an unsolicited story to tell us about their dog and intervertebral disc disease (IVDD).
What exactly is IVDD? We did a LOT of research to better understand the unfortunate and often painful condition that affects 20% of dachshunds. Here is everything you need to know: causes and symptoms of the IVDD, prevention, and treatment options.
We're approaching our third year in New York City with Django (and our 10th year living here overall!). We've lived in five different apartments throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn, so we've gotten to know the city and everything it has to offer really really well.
New York City can be an intimidating place, especially if you're visiting for the first time with your dog. Not sure where to eat and hang out with your pup next time you visit? We put together a list of our favorite dog-friendly restaurants, coffee shops, bars, parks and beaches (yes, beaches!) in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.
With ticks and other disease-spreading insects proliferating throughout the United States, dog parents today are increasingly concerned about protecting themselves and their pups from Lyme disease. Lyme disease is commonly transmitted to dogs and humans through bites from blacklegged ticks and can cause serious symptoms and illness.
We partnered with the Cynthia Lopez, editor of Pet Life Today, on this important topic. Here is everything you need to know about Lyme Disease in dogs including preventative care, symptoms, and treatment options.
