A Word From Heather

Preservation Breeder

Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here. Please take some time to look through our virtual kennel and check out our articles section. Keeping and breeding dogs is a difficult, time-consuming task that requires a level of seriousness and dedication around the matter. It’s not something you ‘do just for fun’, as there are little lives involved. Being a ‘registered breeder’ doesn’t necessarily mean the breeder meets good animal welfare standards. A responsible dog breeder is one who has ethical practices and puts the welfare of the puppies before profit.

Any profit made at AASHUDNA kennels goes back into the housing, care, and continuous improvement of our dogs. This is not intended to supplement my lifestyle, but rather to provide the best possible life for my dogs now and in the future.

Quality homes wanted

Yes, on very rare occasions, we have puppies available to those who have expressed interest and met our qualifications prior. We are only looking for homes where we are confident the potential owners will provide the expected level of care for the puppy and that ensures the puppy will live in a safe, secure, and suitable environment, where he or she will be contented and loved.

When quality matters

Becoming a top quality dachshund breeder doesn’t happen overnight. Nor, does it mean you have an interest in breeding your dachshund ‘just for fun’. A successful breeder is one who knows the virtues and faults of all the dogs in a pedigree for 3 generations. The breeder must have the judgment to pick the best puppies and the willingness to eliminate the breeding stock of all defective or substandard specimens.


What is it and why should I care?

Dogs Australia is the largest and oldest breeding organisation for responsible, professional purebred dog breeders. It was formed in 1949 and has been at the forefront of protecting and promoting the interests of its members and the welfare of all dogs ever since.

Dogs Australia has a state-based representative body in each Australian state, for example, Dogs NSW, Dogs QLD, and Dogs Victoria. Breeders can register with their state body as members and undergo their registered breeder program, which gives breeders a Prefix. Dogs Australia is connected with similar sister associations around the world, including the American Kennel Club (AKC) and the Kennel Club in the United Kingdom (UK). Dogs Australia is also a member of the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI).

State laws require all breeders to follow a Code of Practice. Breeders registered with Dogs Australia have to follow an even more thorough Code of Practice & Code of Ethics. If they break the code, an investigation happens. Severe breaches are reported to the authorities, which could result in the breeder's prefix being taken away along with their membership.

Dogs Australia pedigree papers represent more than just the dog's ancestry. They also represent ethical breeding practices, such as not breeding dogs too young and too frequently. They also represent careful planning to produce predictable traits and characteristics, such as coat and temperament. This makes it more likely you'll get a puppy that's a good fit for your lifestyle.

Back X-Raying Dachshunds

What do backscores REALLY mean?

It is our mission to provide healthy, quality Dachshunds in Australia. We place a strong focus on the prevention of IVDD. We back-score our breeding stock at the age of 2 years old and this has been very successful in helping us keep IVDD at bay.
