The Pet Professionals' online courses are designed to help responsible pet owners improve their knowledge on how to look after their pet. Written by qualified professionals, their online courses guide you, at your own pace, though your learning.

The buying and owning a Dachshund course provides you with the key things you need to know before buying and how to take best care of your pet. You can watch the taster videos from the clips below.

Thank you for supporting our charity: Dachshund Health UK

A big shout out to:

Candy Jones, author of Sausage Dog Days who has very generously donated £150 to Dachshund Health UK to support our breed health improvement projects. Candy said: Today I am delighted to donate the remaining profits - £300 - from sales of the book! This sum will be split between Dedicated to Dachshunds with IVDD and the Dachshund Breed Council UK. Today's donation brings the total amount of money raised by Sausage Dog Days to £2,203, shared between our two chosen charities. It is such an incredible total and I am so grateful to you all for your support!

It's still possible to get your paws on a copy of Sausage Dog Days; you can message me on Sausage Dog Days or visit Selina Knox's wonderful online store (thanks Selina for your help!):
