- We are raising, training, testing and breeding our dogs ourselves.

- We are breeding for versatility, not for conformation.
- we are breeding within the canadian kennel club, although aiming to breed as close to german standard as possible.
- we are not breeding for colour of papers, but health & workability of the dog.
- our dogs are not pets only, they must be sport and working/hunting dogs.
We train and work our dogs ourselves as we believe that teamwork and work ethic will build, improve and remain with one handler/dog team only.
If the opportunity arises, Our dogs are only shown for conformation evaluation once according to European (FCI) breeding standards.
we strongly believe function defines form.
We are currently working on promoting ethical, leashed blood-tracking for the purpose of finding wounded animals.
We thank United Blood Trackers, as well as other experienced blood-trackers from Canada, Europe and the U.S.A. to support us in these efforts.
our dogs are trained on artificial blood-tracks and compete in Tracking, Earthdog and Dachshund field trials.
Puppies from our litters have proven to track (on leash) deer, moose and bear. So Far, Our dogs achieved tracking dog titles in 3 generations.
We have not trained our dogs on wild boar, nor do we train them to hunt large predators like cougar or wolverine and we will not sell our puppies for these purposes.
Our dogs are part of our family and treated with respect.
As such our breeding program is of quality not of quantity and well considered;
A passion and love for the healthy, smart and versatile Dachshund with great work ethic.
We very much appreciate exchange with working dog enthusiasts and breeders all over the world.
