Miniature Smooth Dachshunds, registered breeder with Dogs NSW
Aashudna Miniature Dachshunds
Upper Hunter Valley, NSW Australia, (formally Penrith, NSW Australia).
We are currently owned by 12 Dachshunds, all mini smooths ranging from 12 years to 6 months old. We currently have 3/4 generations of mini smooths. Our foundation dachshund came from Kerry Beakhaus – Zyzemup breedings consisting of old Tambo, Windswept, Vita and Aridela lines.
We have combined some of the best bloodlines made up from the newest available Australian imports into our mini smooth dachshund including Sonderbar, Cogglyn, Solana and Dawnwood and are hugely grateful to our friends who have helped us do this.
Please feel free to view our showcases below, where you can find out more information and pictures of our miniature smooth dachshunds.
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.
