Calm, Clean, Quiet Puppies
By Kim Transier (Dog Nose News Featured Article - May 2005)

Q: We’re choosing a breed. What kind of puppy will be calm, clean, and quiet?

A: Ceramic. Puppies are awful. Their teeth, when not embedded in your person, are dismantling your property. Meanwhile, the other end dribbles unspeakable fluids in unforgivable locations. Nature equips puppies with overwhelming cuteness to keep us from killing them.

Still want a puppy?  Read on!


Are you thinking about adding a standard smooth dachshund
puppy to your household?

Know that there are two types of standard smooth dachshunds currently being bred in the US:
The American show type and the European show/hunting type.

You need to define to yourself what it is you are looking for in a dog.
Make a list of what is important to you and then go breeder hunting.

For the American style dachshunds visit the Dachshund Club of America website.
For the European Teckel, visit the
North American Teckel Club website.

Both of these varieties make great pets.
It depends on the "look" you like and what you want to do with your dog.

I can help you locate a breeder near you, but shipping is also an option.

I breed the European Standard Smooth with the hunting conformation of the 1930's.
If you are interested in one of my dogs, I would be happy to start a conversation with you.

Here is a great blog entry about being a "puppy buyer."
