The famed CE organization DOCS Education expands to create a new membership institute celebrating the smallest of hounds. Daring, intelligent and brave – the dachshund embodies an ideal mixture of traits. Despite being one of the most fantastic dog breeds in existence, they are often dismissed as no more than a lap dog. Yet this assessment could not be farther from the truth. One may wonder why DOCS Education – the nationally recognized continuing sedation education membership organization - chose to focus its next endeavor on such an oddly specific topic. After all, what do dachshunds have to do with dentistry? Though they’re not directly related in any way, dentists and dachshunds have more in common than one may think: both value bravery and perserverance and both have triumphed over an inherent “outsider” status. If general practitioners are the golden retrievers of the medical world, dentists are most certainly the dachshunds: understated, humble, yet continually perservering and improving the lives of those around them with a quiet, cerebral intensity. Thus it was a no brainer for DOCS Education to expand its reach and create, perhaps, their greatest achievement yet: Dachshund Education (or sometimes known playfully as DOCS-und Education). This membership organization is open to any and all who would like to foster discussion and education around this very special yet enigmatic breed. Upon registration, you’ll receive a basic list of dachshund facts including the following:
- Dachshunds were initially bred from dwarf mutations of taller hunting hounds like the Schweisshund (bloodhound) and the Bibarhund. Hence their short legs!
- Dachshunds were bred to hunt badgers: their long body and short legs allow them to burrow underground to chase their prey.
- Dachshunds are intensely loyal. It is not uncommon for dachshunds to risk their lives to protect their owner. Such as Bradley, the brave little dachshund who sacrificed his own life to protect two men from an approaching bear
- Dachshunds weigh between sixteen and twenty eight pounds once fully grown. The miniature dachshund typically weighs less than 11 pounds.
- Dachshunds are highly sensitive and often concerned with the wellbeing of those around them.
- Last year, a dachshund was filmed cleaning a lion’s teeth!
