* We are the breeders/owners/handlers of the first TRIPLE CHAMPION Piebald Dachshund:
        TC (CH, FC, MACH) Duchwood's Tangled Web MS, MJB, MXJ, CGC.  "Tango" (red piebald) is a do-it-all guy, too.  He is our little "border collie" in agility (working on MACH2) and loves hunting bunnies and chasing butterflies.  He also produces gorgeous puppies who hunt, too.


    Field Ch. Duchwood Great Expectations MS, C.D.X., RA, AX, OAP, AXJ, OJP, also known as "Stella".  We congratulate her and owner, Holly Deeds, of Chattanooga, TN, for their continuing hard work!

U.S./Can. Ch. Duchwood's Cedarhurst PI MS, U.S./Can. C.D., RAE, JE, NJP, also known as "Pi".  We congratulate him and owner, Kathleen Johnson, of Duluth, MN, for their amazing accomplishments (PI sadly passed in 2012 at the age of 15 1/2).

Field Ch. Duchwood's Slow Burn MS, NA, NAP, NJP - "Sloane" (red piebald) - this is my little agility girl who is now retired.  She produced kids who hunt.

FC Duchwood's Hide N Zeke MS, UDX8 - "Zeke" is an overachiever.  He won both his field championship and Utility obedience degree in the space of 3 consecutive weekends!  He got a 1st and a 2nd at the field trials, and 3 firsts in the Utility ring.  Wow, is all we can say!  This is the first Duchwood U.D., and now U.D.X8, Dachshund!  We congratulate his owners, Gene and Anne Morris, of Dallas, TX, for winning these titles in incredible style and ease!  He is currently the No. 1 Dachshund in competition obedience in 2014 and is working on his UDX9 in 2014!

Duchwood Kennels has been in existence for over 30 years breeding healthy, beautiful, AKC-registered, Miniature Smooth Dachshunds for working, performance, and show events.  These hounds are bred and raised by an AKC field trial judge to have the best conformation and temperament to allow them to succeed in rabbit field trials, den trials, wounded deer tracking, and the hunting of rabbits, rats, squirrels, ground hogs, etc.  Duchwood Dachshunds have excelled in all of the above field sports.  All young dogs are evaluated for prey drive and temperament for the field sports and for their potential to produce the next generation of working hounds, as well as for the AKC recognized sports of tracking, agility, obedience, and conformation showing.

Occasionally, we have show and performance/working/pet quality puppies and adults available for sale.  Pet puppies are always sold on spay/neuter contracts with limited AKC registration papers and health guarantees.   People interested in a puppy should be prepared to provide references.  Serious inquiries from established show breeders are invited for show-quality puppies as we do sell our good ones, both solids and piebalds.  Show pups will be sold on co-ownerships if we do not know you.  Stud service is available to approved, show-quality bitches only.

Duchwood Kennels will always take back any dog or pup we have sold at any time for any reason if the owner is not able to provide it with a loving home.  We will find a good home for it or it will stay here permanently.

Note:  All titles are AKC (American Kennel Club), the only true, original dog registration and show organization in the U.S.  Other so-called "registries" such as the CKC (Continental Kennel Club), SKC (States Kennel Club), and APR (American Puppy Registry) were formed by people kicked out of the AKC for rules violations.  They formed these "clubs" so that they could say their puppies were "registered" and the uneducated public would think they were buying a purebred puppy. Never buy a puppy from someone who uses these registries as there is no guarantee that the puppy will be purebred.  These organizations will register literally anything without proof of lineage.  They even encourage the registration of mixed breeds which they call "designer breeds".  These "designer breeds" are nothing more than mutts since they do not breed true, yet people are paying ridiculous prices for them.  Don't get sucked in by the hype on these web sites and even on TV.  A mutt is a mutt and to think otherwise is to seriously delude yourself.
