Thank you for visiting Aashudna Miniature Dachshunds. We are a small ANKC kennel registered with Dogs NSW striving for excellence in quality, type and temperament. We have deep affiliations with other ANKC registered kennel’s within Australia with the key objective being to preserve the best bloodlines & temperaments while also focusing our efforts on ‘colour’ being the Chocolate and Tan Miniature Dachshund. We are members and a standing committee member of the Dachshund Club of NSW Inc.
Since the very beginning, our love for the Dachshund was strong, with their unmistaken beauty and fierce love for life. Our dogs bring much joy and enrichment to both mine and my husband’s lives – which is what first prompted us of becoming a registered breeder with Dogs NSW in 2011. Becoming a breeder was not something we took light-hearted after acquiring our chocolate and tan male miniature dachshund BenG from Acovagem, a rural NSW breeder in Grenfell.
Owning a number of miniature dachshunds ourselves, our extended family all view them as our ‘FUR-KIDS’ with each and every FUR-KID having their own profile page on this website so feel free to browse and view each of them to see some pictures and a little bit of information about each one. All our FUR-KIDS sleep inside our home at night with a seperate doggy door access to the rear yard, in addition to this we have altered our home to help cater towards their needs which includes air conditioning for those hot summer days and underfloor heating for those chilly winter days. Our FUR-KIDS are never kennelled or garaged, they are free to roam the family home when we are home and have been well trained to NOT enter off-limit areas.
Health issues in miniature dachshunds are of top priority and importance within our kennel. All Aashudna miniature dachshunds are screened and TESTED for genetic disease which are offered by our chosen genetic services provider and prior to them being used in our breeding program or OFFERED for stud.
Research in this area is always evolving and new information in how to identify possible at risk dachshunds is something we follow carefully.
My husband and I are actively involved in the Dachshund Club of NSW inc. This allows us to be in regular contact with like minded breeders and allows access to some of the best stud males in Australia.
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.
Our miniature smooth dachshunds are soft or course in coat. A classic hound look, pointed muzzle, alert eyes, short legs, apple shaped rears, prominent chest, muscular bodies and of larger type. Our dogs are of sound conformation with excellent temperament and breed type. Our areas of focus, ribbing, shoulders and underline without sacrifice to balance, movement and health.
