Fun-loving and smart are the two words we thought of when designing our Dachshund door knocker. The long body shape lent itself perfectly to a door knocker so our main challenge was to capture the infamous Dachshund personality in our design. We decided on an alert, lying position. The head is slightly tilted as though ready to pounce on unsuspecting visitors!

Our Dachshund knocker is positioned facing down on the door with its head up so it looks visitors directly in the eye. Its expression is serious but those gorgeous droopy ears make it undeniably cute. We positioned the fixing bracket underneath the rump and tail making it invisible to the eye. Although one of our smaller door knockers at 165mm in length, Huxley still gives a hearty knock as it weighs just under 1kg.

What we love…

  • Beautiful droopy Dachshund ears
  • Focus on the head and expression showing a loving and courageous nature
  • Concealed fixing bracket
  • Looks beautiful from front and side
  • Perfect for any Dachshund lover

Fitting your dachshund door knocker

Huxley is a surface mounted brass door knocker. Easy to install, our custom-designed fitting bracket will ensure it stays firmly in place on your front door. As it is surface mounted, there will be no nuts or bolts seen protruding on the inside of your front door. Our door knockers are suitable for wood doors as well as solid core composite doors and all screws and fittings are supplied.


Aged Brass

A vintage appearance is achieved using a natural chemical-free patination process. A clear sealant is applied which protects your door knocker and prevents it from tarnishing. This is a thin and durable coating that, unlike a lacquer, will not crack or peel. It also gives protection against acid rain and salt air. No need for metal cleaning products, just wipe with a soft cloth periodically.

Polished Brass

Our polished door knockers show brass in its natural state. After casting they are highly polished until very bright and shiny. This finish can be maintained using a metal cleaner and soft brush or if left unpolished your door knocker will tarnish and age naturally. If you’d like your door knocker to remain highly polished without regular cleaning, we can add our protective sealant. Please let us know by making a note at checkout.


Our black patina gives the brass a lovely deep, rich colour that has a slight sheen. We add our sealant to protect the finish. Little maintenance is required, just wipe periodically with a soft cloth.

Satin Nickel

A thin layer of nickel is added to the brass by electroplating. We add our sealant to protect the finish. Little maintenance is required, just wipe periodically with a soft cloth.
