WITH THE sTANDARD wIRE-hAIRED daCHSHUND bREED AND THE ART OF rAISING A PUPPY.

Our breeding females are tested for immunity through a nomograph before puppies arrive. 

we only vaccinate according to the veterinary immunology specialist's recommendations for puppy immunizations according to the dam's antibody count and consecutively puppy's antibody count for parvovirus and distemper. After a puppy's basic vaccines, annual titer tests are done.


This way each individual puppy will be vaccinated at the Time the body is most receptible to immunization and will not be over-vaccinated.

Testimonials:

"Hi Christiane and Gord,
I can't say enough how grateful I am to both of you for the love and care you gave to Koko prior to the puppies being born and all that you did for them after. I also can't say enough how lucky we are that you matched Alice with us. She is a perfect pack match for our Holly and Daisy. She is very respectful of the matriarch, Daisy. She is also an extremely loving dog that's very attached to us. We are learning a lot about Wire-haired dachshunds through her as we've never had a dog so driven by nose and prey drive :-) she will definitely make me a better dog handler and owner. She is enjoying blood tracking training as well as freelancing in chipmunk, mouse, squirrel, and beetle hunting:-)
Thank you again for all that you did for our little Miss Alice and all the puppies in this litter. If you ever need a reference for someone looking to get a wonderful puppy from you, I'm here to help :-)  
Tara and John"

"We love Annie so much! She has been a wonderful addition to our family! She is adorable and makes us laugh every day..."
