Miniature Dachshunds are a small sensitive breed who can also be quite headstrong. A fully grown Miniature Dachshund generally weights around 4 to 5kg. They have 3 different coats which are short haired, wire haired and long haired. Thus Dogmaster Trainers recommend collars with exchangeable contact probes for Miniature Dachshund.
Miniature Dachshunds were originally bred for hunting. Their prey drive can be relatively strong. We do not recommend any ultrasonic or citronella spray collars/devices for them. These products may work to start with but when their hunting instinct kick in, they will just ignore ultrasonic and citronella distraction. We recommend a static correction collar for the Miniature Dachshund
Bark control collars
Num'axes Small Bark Collar
Num'axes Canicalm Small Dog bark control collar is one of the smallest rechargeable bark control collar. It suits most small barking dogs from 2.5kg in weight. This collar has built in Vibration Bark Detect Sensor. For long haired and wirehaired Miniature Dachshund, we recommend to trim the hair of the contact area so the probes have a good contact with the dog’s skin. The bark detect sensor also easier to activate when the dog barks.

Dogtra YS300 is a larger bark collar for dogs from 5kg in weight. It will suit a bigger size Dachshund. This collar has microphone bark detect sensor which is better for long and wirehaired Dachshund.
