Dachshund Goes Sledding with Ponies

When the winter rolls around I sometimes (like most of you) spend a little more time indoors. Because honestly, I’d much rather be warm and toasty then freezing my tail off! But when it snows, that all changes, because one of my favorite activities involves a fresh dusting of snow and some of my furry four-legged friends.

It’s time to go sledding with my ponies!

Ammo the Dachshund // Sledding with Ponies

All I need is a warm winter coat, an inner tube, and a willing pony! Good thing Boomerang and Blitz were more than happy to let me hitch a ride.

I hear even more snow is headed my way this Saturday……AND I CAN’T WAIT!

What sort of things do you do for fun in the snow with your dog? Ammo the Dachshund

10 Winter Coats that Fit Dachshunds

A few months ago I shared a collection of fall sweaters that were designed to fit my fellow dachshund friends. Well now that the colder weather has set in I thought it would be fun to share my recommendations for winter coats too!

So here is my collection of 10 Winter Coats that Fit Dachshunds – some of which I’ve tried and tested, and a few that seem to fit the bill for all those short legged/long backed doxies out there!

1. Voyagers K9 Apparel Winter Dog Coat

One of my go-to coats every winter is my Voyagers K9 Winter Coat. I’ve owned this coat since 2011 – and it’s held up fabulously over the years. It’s great on the farm, and the added hood is fabulous at keeping my ears warm. Not to mention I look oh-so-stylish when wearing it! You can fetch your own from Voyagers K9.

2. Noodle and Friends

Trendy Coats to Keep your Dachshund Warm // Noodle & Friends // Ammo the Dachshund

Over the years I’ve owned many Noodle and Friends Coats. Designed with the long bodied dogs in mind they also feature extra chest protection (great for when you’re low to the ground) and one of my favorite features – a built in d-ring so you don’t have to wear a harness too! Check out the entire line of dog coats from Noodle and Friends.

3. Obtrack

Friday Fetch: Obtrack Winter Dog Coat via Ammo the Dachshund

While I’ve never had the chance to try one of these Obtrack Coats, they do look exceptionally warm! These coats are designed to protect a dog’s important muscle groups, and they even come in sizes just for dachshunds! You can fetch one of these coats from Obtrack.

4. Buggsly Black Label

Buggsly Black Label Custom Jacket // Ammo the Dachshund

I spotted these coats on one of my favorite blogs, Dog Milk, and even though I’ve never tried them – I love the fact that all their coats are available in a custom fit option. Which means they fit Dachshunds! Fetch your own from Buggsly.

5. Ruffwear

Ruffwear Climate Changer // Ammo the Dachshund

I’ve owned the Ruffwear Climate Changer for quite some time now. And I have to say it is one of the warmest coats I’ve ever owned. Now while it’s not specifically designed for dachshunds, these coats are actually very long in the body and seem to fit my unique build like a glove. The only issue I had with the Climate Changer is that sometimes my legs got caught inside the sleeves (since they are a little extra long) – but mom fixed this issue for me by hemming them up some. But Ruffwear does make several winter coat designs that don’t have sleeves, which would likely be a little more conducive to short legged dachshunds without the need to do some hemming. You can fetch this coat and more from Ruffwear (*contains affiliate links)

6. Foggy Mountain Dog Coats

Foggy Mountain Dachshund Coat // Ammo the Dachshund

These horse blanket style dachshund coats are designed to fit the shorter leg breeds. While I haven’t tried this brand personally, I did used to own a blanket style coat when I was a puppy that fit me very well. You can fetch the Foggy Mountain Dachshund Coat from True Fit Dog Coats.

7. Lupo & Olimp Co.

Lupo & Olimp Co. Coats // Ammo the Dachshund

I haven’t tested these handmade fleece coats from Lupo & Olimp, but they do look exceptionally soft and warm. You can fetch them in a variety of colors from Lupo & Olimp Co. on Etsy.

8. Pepper Pet Wear

Pepper Pet Wear // Ammo the Dachshund

The folks at Pepper Pet Wear make a variety of winter coats – all of which can be custom made to fit your dog – dachshunds included! I’m always a big fan of coats that have added protection under the belly, and these look like they would hold up well to rigorous farm life! You can check out these custom pet coats from Pepper Pet Wear on Etsy.

10. Motley Mutt Winter Wrap

Motley Mutt Winter Wrap // Ammo the Dachshund

When I spotted these Winter Wraps from Motley Mutt I couldn’t help but wish I had one! They remind me of the style of my Voyager K9 Coat, and even come in Dachshund sizes. You can fetch one from Motley Mutt.

So there you have it, my fun collection of winter coats designed to keep your Dachshund warm! Have any to add? Post your suggestions in the comments below! Ammo the Dachshund

How to Remove Stubborn Pet Stains

Disclaimer: This post is brought to you by Chewy.com

Natural Pet Carpet Cleaner // Ammo the Dachshund

Recently my friends over at Chewy.com sent me a bottle of this Nature’s Miracle Stain & Odor Remover.

Now, first off, I don’t consider myself a “mess maker” – as I am fully house trained and haven’t had an “accident” since I was just a wee pup.

But then mom reminded me that our house does contain a few of my oops messes. Because lets be honest….

So okay, maybe I do leave my share fair of stains around the house, after all I am a farm dog with access to lots of “yummy” goodies. I’ve also gotten quite good at aiming for the carpets as well, so perhaps I do have a use for this stain and odor remover.

Natural Pet Carpet Cleaner // Ammo the Dachshund

So I sniffed out some Key Benefits of Nature’s Miracle:

  • Suitable for carpet, floors, or any hard surface
  • Neutralizes organic odors and removes stains
  • Quick drying
  • No rinsing necessary

Natural Pet Carpet Cleaner // Ammo the Dachshund

Ingredients in Nature’s Miracle include:

  • Water
  • Nature’s Bio-Enzymatic Blend
  • Oxygen Boosters
  • Surfactant
  • Isopropyl Alcohol
  • Natural Citrus Scent

It’s also safe for use around children and pets. So just how did it stack up to my icky stain….

Couldn’t even detect it!

Phew! I’m totally out of the dog house thanks to Nature’s Miracle. Thank goodness I now have a bottle on hand for those “just incase” moments.

You can fetch your own Nature’s Miracle Stain & Odor Remover from Chewy.com Ammo the Dachshund
