We have not had any puppies in 2020 but are planning to have a couple of litters in 2021. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below are litters from 2019. Both have turned out really well. We have repeated our Odin/Xena litter. These pups should be whelped around February 15, 2021. They are all spoken for. We are planning to breed Odette again as well, and possibly Brownie.
We screen all our buyers very carefully and it is a multi-step process that involves filling out a questionnaire and phone conversations. We sell puppies only to serious trackers who are willing to put their time into training and tracking. So if you are looking primarily for a pet dachshund that will track a wounded deer 1-2 times a year, we are not a right breeder for you. We do not ship puppies.
|Parents of the litter: Xena and Odin. They are of the same conformation type - strong, powerful and agile teckels. Xena is 22.5 lbs and Odin 25.5.|
|Odin's DTK/FCI pedigree is a superb one for a working teckel.|

|Odin has a beautiful masculine head.|

We get a lot of inquiries about dachshund puppies that would be good prospects for blood tracking, and we would like to help hunters locate right breeders. You might hear differently, and everybody is entitled to his own opinion, but not all dachshunds are good candidates for blood tracking. Of course it matters what kind of training pups will receive and how they are handled, but genetics and an early start matter too... A LOT.
The dachshund is a versatile hunting breed, and in Europe it is widely used for fox and badger hunting, game flushing and retrieving, and blood tracking. Because of different hunting traditions and different game, in North America the hunting dachshund is used mainly for blood tracking (standard dachshunds), falconry and woodchuck hunting (minis). If you are looking for a puppy primarily for blood tracking, make sure that you ask a breeder about priorities in his/her breeding program. Ask what traits are being selected for, what experience in the field the dogs have etc. Of course, you also need to ask many more questions about a health guarantee and the support you are going to get once you purchase a pup. Price is not the only thing that matters!
It is not easy to get a wirehaired dachshund puppy out of European working lines as there are very few breeders of these dogs in the whole country. Almost always there is waiting time involved. Most breeders have pups in spring and summer. If you are planning to get a puppy for blood tracking purposes, make sure that you have a good supply of deer blood, organs, hides and legs for training purposes.
