"Breeding to the standard will not preserve function.
All it can preserve is appearance."
~ Dan Belkin, Ph.D.


Too heavy a chest, or too coarse bone are as much of a handicap as underdevelopment. A properly proportioned dachshund suggests the symmetrical build and lithe agility of the middle-weight boxing champion
~Laurence Alden Horswell (1958)


Section 5.2 of the FCI standard for Dachshunds:

Commentary: For some time now, some non-European countries have been attempting to award the title International Conformation Champion FCI without the performance requirements.
The Dachshund is and shall remain a useful hunting dog.
Excellent evaluation scores and outstanding performance
are not mutually exclusive. The goal for the breeding of dachshunds must be form and function.


My dachshund (teckel) mission: To create a line of standard smoothes which serve the needs of trackers, hunters and sporting competitors.  All this and beautifully conformed according to the FCI 148 standard.  My watchwords are AGILITY, FOCUS, PERSEVERENCE and PREY DRIVE.
