The Mission of Von Wolff Kennel Miniature Dachshunds
With over 20 years dachshund breeding experience behind
us, VWK has undertaken a breeding program to produce
our very own line of miniature dachshunds. The emphasis
in this program is, first and foremost, on proper
temperment. No dog that displays aggression, undue
shyness, a tendency to nip or growl will be a part of the
breeding program. We welcome visitors to our Kennel, as
we know our dachshunds will be friendly and happy to
see them. The proper Dachshund temperment includes
being good with children, adults and other animals....
although this is not written in the AKC/NMDC Standard for the Breed...it is one of the criteria at VWK for a dog to be selected for the breeding program.
Puppies are screened for health and conformation. A few will be chosen to enter AKC conformation events.
From the dogs being shown...selective pairings will
be made. The best offspring will be kept at VWK to act
as the basis of the breeding program. Our future Sires and
Dams. Hopefully they will all be AKC Champions.
This kind of effort doesn't take place overnight. Dogs
may be chosen, then found to not be suitable for one reason
or another. Those will be offered for sale to good homes
with the agreement to spay or neuter. They will make wonderful family pets as they have been well socialized and trained.
The outcome of this plan will be to create a line of
miniature dachshunds known for their kind and loving
attitudes, their robust, long term health, and their
outstanding beauty as it is described in the AKC Breed
Standard for Dachshunds!
