Is Maya mixed with another breed?
No, Maya is a purebred long haired English Cream Dachshund.
Are you sure she isn’t mixed with a Golden Retriever or is a mini-Golden Retriever?
Yes, we are positive. Both her parents are purebred and although she does look like a mini-golden retriever, no such thing exists.
What type of camera do you use:
About 70% of our photos are shot with a Canon 6D Mark II with a 24-70mm f2.8L II lens and the other 30% of photos are just with our iPhone 6.
How do you keep a bow to stay in Maya’s hair?
We use bows with a french clip to help it stay in Maya’s hair, but once she shakes her head (which is often) it falls off. Typically, we are able to snap a few photos before she does that!
How did you crate train Maya?
We started crate training Maya the first day we got her. She was NOT happy and this was NOT an easy process for us. Most nights for the first few weeks, we would wake up to cries of her wanting to get attention or having to go potty. We tried to make the crate her safe spot and played with her during the day inside of it. It wasn’t until we put her in the crate with Winston when things got better and the rest is history 🙂 Now that they are older, we have separated the two of them into different crates to give them more space to stretch out and it has worked out well!
What do you feed Maya?
We currently feed her freeze dried patties from Stella & Chewy’s. It is raw, minimally processed food that has no grains or gluten, and contains 100% organic vegetables and fruits. We have no doubt in our mind that we are feeding our pups the best of the best food in terms of quality.
How big is Maya?
She ranges between 13-14lbs typically. We think most of it is her fluff 🙂
What is her personality like?
Maya is a very sweet loving girl, but is also sassy and demands attention. ALL. THE. TIME. She can be stubborn (like the stereotypical dachshund), but she does listen to us for the most part. She is very assertive and runs the household.
Can we meet Maya?
We are from the outer suburbs of Washington DC, right in Northern Virginia! If you are a fan in the area, shoot us a message!
Do you work with other brands?
Yes, we love working with other brands that we feel fit with our aesthetic. We are particular with who we work with and do not accept all requests. Feel free to drop us a message in the Contact section or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
