How To Find A Reputable Breeder

 

How do I determine if I’ve found a reputable breeder or not?

 

It’s really very simple. If you are being asked a multitude of questions about your life, how you intend to care for the dog, and your entire life history, if you are beginning to feel as if you are having to qualify for a child, then you have found a reputable breeder. If the breeder is not asking you any questions, you need to be very suspicious of their motives. If the breeder is trying to impress you with how wonderful they are and how long they’ve been in the area and how many years they have been raising dachshunds and how many hundreds of litters they’ve raised you need to be very suspicious of their motives.

We are rescuing a tremendous number of dachshunds on an annual basis. Additionally in a year’s time we have approximately 150-200 dachshund owners that contact us about giving up their dachshunds. You need to realize when you purchase a dachshund puppy you are making a 16-17 year investment. An investment of time, money and emotion. Please do not obtain a dachshund puppy if you do not have sufficient time to devote to it. If you work a 10-12 hour day, come home to change clothes and then run out for other events, please do not purchase a dachshund puppy because you do not have time to adequately care for it.

We understand that you may want the companionship of a dog in your life but it is not fair to the dog to expect it to be alone for that amount of time. It will be impossible for you to train the dog if you are home that little and soon you will be frustrated with the chewing, the destructive nature and the lack of housebreaking that is occurring because you simply do not have time to devote to your new family member. It’s not fair to the dog and we really do not want to have to rescue another dachshund if we can prevent that from happening.

Now that you know how to look for a reputable breeder, please let us know what size and coat variety of Dachshund puppy you are looking for. Be advised that we have very few names to recommend to you and in all probability you will have to wait some time to obtain a dog from a reputable breeder. We will contact you with the names and numbers of people we feel will deal with you honestly and fairly. We will only give you the names and numbers we would feel comfortable sending our own mothers to.
