Dachshunds are one of the most popular and easily recognizable dog breeds thanks to their iconic wiener-like physique. They come in several coat variants as well as in two differently sized sub-breeds – standard dachshund and mini dachshund.
The standard dachshund size characteristics usually go up to 8”-9” (20-23 cm) in height and 16-32 lb (7.3-14.5 kg) weight. On the other hand, you can expect a mini dachshund to cap around 5”-7” (12-18 cm) height and 11 lb (5 kg) weight.
Activity levels difference between dachshund and mini dachshund
A standard dachshund can easily run as fast as 15-20 mp/h (24-32 km/h) in short bursts as you can see in this Doggo Sports video. The breed also needs at least ~60 minutes of outdoor physical exercise while mini dachshunds need a more moderate regime of ~30 minutes of outdoor exercise.
