Puppies and Breeders

Are you looking for a dachshund puppy?  The best way to ensure a long and happy relationship with a dog is to purchase from a responsible breeder. The DVDC recommends buyers begin their search for a new puppy by doing their research first.

Here are some tips:

  • Read the AKC (American Kennel Club) standard for the breed(s) you are considering. Read books and articles to learn more about each breed and any hereditary medical conditions, making your final decision based on your family’s lifestyle.
  • Contact the AKC and/or the national/local breed club to get a list of breeders in your area.  (The Dachshund Club of America lists breeders on their website.)
  • Learn how to find a reputable breeder.  Here are a few articles which may be helpful to you.
