DachsLife 2015: only 10 days left to submit your dog’s health survey

About_this_surveyOur breed lifestyle and Back Disease survey DachsLife 2015 will be closing at the end of March.  We currently have just over 1900 responses, so if we can get another 10 per day until 31st March, we will break the 2000 responses level.

So far, we have these responses:

Smooth 191 10%
Long 125 6.6%
Wire 242 12.7%
Mini Smooth 706 37%
Mini Long 334 17.5%
Mini Wire 302 15.8%

56% have been spayed/neutered and 76% have not been bred from.

17% have had some degree of back problems and half of those required surgery.  Of the dogs requiring surgery, this was successful in restoring most or all functionality in 95% of cases.

After back disease, Skin Allergies are the next most reported health problem (13%).

29% of owners describe their Dachshund as “Highly Active”.

11% of owners participate in KC dog shows at Open or Championship level.  21% participate in obedience and 9% in Canine Good Citizen.  48% of owners have more than one Dachshund.

Thank you to everyone who has participated so far. Please encourage all your Dachshund-owning friends to complete the survey before the end of March.
