WE ARE A HOTEL EXCLUSIVELY FOR DACHSHUNDS
Short little legs are our speciality here at the Hotel. Myself, my daughter Daisy and our little black and tan sausage, Rolo, cannot wait to welcome you and your dachshunds for a great holiday. Whether it’s just as a day guest, an overnight guest, or an extended resident, your sausage will have fun in abundance and be cuddled, pampered and treated like one of our own. There will be lots of playtimes with exciting toys and human interaction and there is also the sausage soft play area for those energetic daxies who like to be daring. Here at Hotel Dachshund we cater for every need and type of sausage dog. We really are a luxury break for your beloved sausage.
The best place for your sausage dog.
Here at Hotel Dachshund, we offer a luxury experience for your sausage. We are based in the heart of the Essex countryside surrounded by open fields and rural walks. Whilst your sausage is in our care, they will enjoy a ‘home from home’ experience. Your dachshund will be treated as one of the family. We have a good understanding of sausage dogs and appreciate their needs and quirky ways. Their stay with us will be stress free and filled with fun, excitement and lots of love.
We are in the village of Little Dunmow close to Felsted. During your sausage’s stay with us, they will enjoy many walks. Dogs that are walked off lead (with owner’s consent) will be wearing a tracker linked to my phone to ensure the dog’s safety. Regular photos and ‘pupdates’ can be supplied. We have a warm water facility in the garden where muddy paws and tummies can be washed after sniffy walks.
For relaxation and nap time we have a selection of sumptuous snuggly beds handpicked for comfort. (However, some sausages like the feel and smell of their own beds, so each guest is free to make their own bed choices). Your daxie can also indulge in a relaxing calming paw massage with cooling paw balm for an extra treat. We also know how much sausages love cuddles. We make sure every sausage gets the attention and love they deserve.
We have a well-designed, secure garden created with sausage fun and adventure in mind. Ramps are provided for short legs to come and go. There are brain training toys, soft toys, ball pit, shady nooks, doggy play pool (weather dependent), lots of soft grass, and a unique two storey doggy fun house containing soft play mats (again, weather dependent), sniffy toys and various challenges. Doggy ice lollies and doggy ice cream served in the garden on hot days.
If during your daxie’s stay at Hotel Dachshund, they will be celebrating a birthday, we can make the day extra special with a party for your pooch. Your sausage baby will be given a delicious birthday cake (all doggy friendly ingredients) which can be shared with friends if he/she chooses, a birthday bandana and souvenir photo of the event. We will also play some party games.
Your sausage will need enough of the same food you feed at home to cover the duration of their stay. We feel it’s best to continue with the same meal plan as your daxie is used to, ensuring no sickly tummies. We will serve breakfast and dinner at the times you specify so their routine remains the same. Any medication that your dog needs daily or monthly will be documented and administered as required. Worming and flea treatments must be up to date.
We would prefer not to take non neutered males due to testosterone levels which can cause tension with other guests. Unspayed females are welcome unless there is a possibility of them coming into season during their stay. We rely on owners honesty when it comes to females in season as we take no responsibility for any unwanted attention from other guests at the hotel.
Obviously we are a hotel that caters purely for dachshunds. However, we appreciate that it may be the case that some dachshund guests may have siblings that are not long and sausagey. Under these circumstances we would of course consider welcoming other family members also.
Hotel Dachshund is a large, warm, comfortable home where all guests are treated as part of the family. Sausages are welcome whether it be for a day visit, overnight, weekend stay or for an extended holiday. Whether the stay be long or short, the same love and attention will be lavished on all. Their stay with us will always be a treat for them and they will always have lots of fun.

Hi, my name is Samantha and for 20 years I have worked in primary education teaching children. However, I have always had one big passion in life and that’s dogs, but specifically Dachshunds. This became even more apparent when in 2013 my daughter and I decided to extend our little family with our very own miniature black and tan dachshund, Rolo. We fell completely head over heels in love with him and all his sausage ways. Rolo is such a little character, he loves to play hide and seek with us and enjoys destroying the most ‘indestructible’ of toys leaving trails of stuffing all over the house!
As a family we have always loved to walk and explore, so we started enjoying beautiful country trips with Rolo and also days at the beach and camping at weekends. Rolo has been on lots of adventures.
Whenever I have travelled abroad, gone away for one night or over a weekend I have had to find somebody to care for and love Rolo in the same way I do. I have always struggled to find somebody who understands the unique qualities in Dachshunds.
That is why I decided to leave my job in teaching and set up Hotel Dachshund. Since then I have gone on to obtain a Level 3 qualification in Canine Care, Behaviour and Welfare. I also hold a Canine First Aid Certificate and hold full Public Liability Insurance.
