The Dachshund is very versatile and enjoys a number of sports
Dachshunds have been extremely popular in the show ring and since they are always in the top 10 of AKC registered dogs, their popularity is everywhere.
Dachshunds are very good at obedience and are often get very high scores. They're smart enough though to get you to think otherwise.
Don't underestimate the dachshunds ability to do agility. Have you ever seen them run, jump, jump over things? They are very athletic if trained carefully.
Earthdog/go-to-ground, is a "natural" sport. The dachshund was bred for digging and hunting and these trials are the sport that makes them happy.
Tracking for items or tracking for game, both are using their natural instincts and they love it. Deer/blood trailing is a very developed sport these dogs do.
