Dachshunds, often referred to as "wiener dogs" due to their elongated bodies, are not as prone to seasonal shedding as some other breeds, but they do have their own quirks when it comes to their coats. Dachshunds, in general, are considered moderate shedders. While they don't leave substantial amounts of hair around your home, you may notice a bit of dog fur on your carpets, furniture, and clothing where your pup has been.

There are three main types of dachshund coats, each with varying grooming requirements and shedding tendencies.

Smooth-Haired Dachshunds: These dogs have smooth, shiny, and short coats, shedding lightly to moderately. They are the most common type of dachshund and are relatively low maintenance in terms of grooming.

Longhaired Dachshunds: Despite their longer fur, longhaired dachshunds shed about as much as the smooth-haired variety. However, they do require more grooming to prevent matting and keep their coats looking their best.

Wirehaired Dachshunds: Wirehaired dachshunds are the least common of the three and tend to shed the most. They have a double coat, making them high maintenance when it comes to grooming.
