We LOVE to go to dachshund meetups. We've been going to local, and not so local, meetups every month for about 4 years now. It's always nice to sniff our friends, see all the dachshunds, and meet new humans. Dad says we're better socialized as a result, but we thought we were just fine to begin with. Regardless, it's great fun.
'Dixie' the dachshund, who hosts Pet Trends with her human Maggie Gallant at Animal Planet, went to a local meetup, and has the poop on "the social trend sweeping the nation" in a nice video at Animal Planet. Make sure to check out more videos with 'Dixie' while you're there.
