One of the most common questions I hear from people is this: I only want a pet.
Why should I care about the puppies pedigree? What's the difference in all the
kennel clubs. There are
many reasons why a good pedigree

(American Kennel Club) is a valuable resource.

The puppy you
purchase might look like a dachshund, the parents might look like a dachshund,
but if you do not know what is behind them, you could be purchasing a puppy that
has other breeds mix into the dog. The American Kennel
Club requires DNA for their dogs. Why is this
important? As a breeder or a potential buyer I want to know who the parents are for sure and the
ancestors behind them. You as a
potential pet owner
should also want to know what is behind your puppy. Every year to eighteen
months a AKC Representative comes to my house to
look at my dogs and their living conditions.
Representative checks to insure each dog can be identified. They will
take DNA samples of puppies to insure that the parents I represents as the

dachshund puppies for sale and the puppy that you decide to purchase comes not only from the
that you purchase your puppy from, but from the breeding of
ALL the other Dachshund
Breeders on your puppies pedigree. The farther back
you go, the less influence the Dachshund Breeder you are planning to
purchase your puppy from, has on your puppy's pedigree. The
results of years of breeding influences the health
of your puppy in either a positive or a
way. Not only does it reflect the health
of your puppy, it also helps determine the disposition
of your puppy.
In order to finish a dog as a Champion, that dog has to be judged by several different
at several different shows. In order for your dog to stand
out among all
the great dogs being shown the Judges look at the overall dog,
not just that the dog has good
conformation. The dog also has to have a great
personality, a dog
that loves to show. A dog's
temperament is not
only influenced by the way the breeder raised the puppy or the way the owner
finished raising the puppy into adulthood. The
temperament also has a lot to do with the

Another important reason for seeking a puppy that has a
good AKC pedigree and perhaps much more important is this: Dogs do not become
Champions if the person that is behind that dog is not
Respected by his or her peers. This is important. In order to have a
reputation that allows you to win over the judges, you cannot be the type of
person that does not stand behind your dogs. You can not
be the type of Dachshund Breeder
that breeds the life out of their dachshund
mothers. You can not
be the type of dachshund breeder that sees nothing, but dollar
signs in their dogs. You will be know as a back yard breeder with nothing, but
selfish motives. A breeder must always remember that these dogs are doing
them a service and in return deserves the

such as Brother Sister mating, Mother Son mating, Father Daughter mating.
This type of breeding is
because it just
doesn't double up on the good genes,
but it also doubles up on the
bad genes. Champions in a Pedigree is impressive and to some degree important, but also
over all breeding
of a dachshund puppy
is important. You are seeing years hopefully of good breeding and
experience. Good breeding and experience reflects how healthy your puppy will
be. It also
positively influences the temperament
of your puppy.
Reputable Breeders spay and neuter breeding dogs that produce genetic defects.
They Do Not
want to produce any genetic defects
that will damage the quality of life of that dog. They do not want that dog to
suffer or their off springs to suffer. They do not do double dapple
breeding. Respected breeders care more about the dog than the dollar sign.
Dachshund breeders that will breed any dog they can find, are the type of
people that do not care about what they are producing. They just want to have
puppies that they can sell in mass quantities.
They are not concerned with genetic problems
temperament problems. As long as they can sell the puppy, that is all that
matters. They do not have to worry about vet bills that accumulate 6 months
later because they do not provide care for their dogs (yearly shots, worming,
flea prevention, & heartworm preventative) or stand by health warrantees for
their puppies they sale. They continue to breed dogs that produce problems
because it is profitable to them. Once the puppy leaves, the headache is someone

Therefore, it is in their best interest to raise only
healthy puppies to the best of a breeders ability. When a person raises a dog for a year only to find out 6
months later that the dog has a genetic problem, this is devastating. That dog
that you spent time on training, feeding, care and loving now has to live the
rest of their lives with less quality than it could have had. It would be
easy to just discard the dog and get another one, but to a good

because that dog has become a member of their family. Also it is devastating to
