I breed primarily for myself; for my next generation of show dogs, and to preserve a bloodline of quality dachshunds. In every litter, there are inevitably puppies that are not suitable for the show ring or whelping box, though they make for wonderful and healthy companions. Generally, my litters are evaluated at eight and twelve weeks for conformation (the physical traits that make a dog conform to the ideal as written in the breed standard), temperament, and movement. Once evaluation is complete, any puppies that will not be staying here will be released to the homes most appropriate for their individual temperament and personality.
Miniature dachshunds are a small breed. As such, puppies will not be released to their new homes until ten weeks at a minimum (and most will stay until twelve week evals are complete). I reserve the right to keep any individual puppy for longer if I feel it necessary for their health or well-being. I raise my puppies using Jane Killion's "Puppy Culture" program. You can read more about that on the Puppy Culture page, or use the link below to purchase the DVD set for yourself.
Quality dachshund puppies destined for family homes typically range between $750 to $1500.
