The last of the 3 different coat types is a long hair dachshund has distinctly long hair as compared to the other 2 coat types. The long haired dachshund is a result of a recessive gene, making it more rare that the traditional smooth coat dachshund.
Due to the long hair, doxies with this coat type seem to shed more than its counterparts. However, this may just be an illusion and the amount of shedding may be due more to other factors like illness or whether proper grooming is practised.
With proper grooming, these long hair will appear soft and silky, giving your doxie a majestic look when it is running towards you.
