With my first Standard Wire-Haired Dachshund "Springwood's Willi Cinna" I have found a perfect companion, working dog with strong character and big dog attitude, in a compact, travel-friendly body.
We train and work our dogs ourselves as we believe that teamwork and work ethic will build, improve and remain with one handler/dog team only.
Our dogs are only shown for conformation evaluation once according to European (FCI) breeding standards.
we strongly believe function defines form.
Here in Alberta it is illegal to hunt with dogs.
We are currently working on promoting ethical, leashed blood-tracking for the purpose of finding wounded animals.
We thank United Blood Trackers, as well as other experienced blood-trackers from Canada, Europe and the U.S.A. to support us in these efforts.
our dogs are trained on artificial blood-tracks and compete in Tracking, Earthdog and Dachshund field trials.
Puppies from our litters have proven to track (on leash) deer, moose and bear. So Far, Our dogs achieved tracking dog titles in 3 generations.
We have not trained our dogs on wild boar, nor do we train them to hunt large predators like cougar or wolverine and we will not sell our puppies for these purposes.
Our dogs are part of our family and treated with respect.
As such our breeding program is of quality not of quantity and well considered;
A passion and love for the healthy, smart and versatile Dachshund with great work ethic.
We very much appreciate exchange with working dog enthusiasts and breeders all over the world.
