About DVDC

The Desert Valley Dachshund Club is affiliated with the American Kennel Club and is the only dachshund club in Arizona. Our non-profit organization is dedicated to the betterment of the dachshund breed through education, responsible breeding, social events and sanctioned specialty shows, obedience trials, and field events. DVDC members adore the dachshund breed and welcome others who share that sentiment. Membership is open to people whose interests include ensuring that dachshunds are valued pets and key members of the household, who are interested in competition and/or breeding, and to those who have an interest in promoting the welfare of the breed – including rescue efforts. We invite you to come to one of our next meetings to learn how the DVDC can add value to you and your dog’s life!
