We did it! After 22 years of existing in a gray zone, piebald Dachshunds are now going to be an official part of the AKC Standard of the Dachshund beginning in 2018!!!!


Duchwood Kennels is the home of the World's First Piebald Dachshund Show Champion -

Ch. Duchwood's Cornerstone MS

RWB DCA National Specialty Show 1995 and Best of Opposite Sex at the 1999 Westminster Kennel Club Show.


Duchwood Kennels has been in existence for over 35 years breeding quality, AKC-registered,  Miniature Smooth Dachshunds for pet, show, and performance events.  We are also involved in field trials, agility trials, obedience, and earth dog tests with titles in all of these venues. Our emphasis is on sound temperament and movement.   Most of our pet quality puppies are placed with families.

Occasionally, we have show and pet/performance 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 pet 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.  Outside bitches may be temporarily co-owned by us for the duration of their litters so that we will have control over where their puppies are placed if we do not know you well.

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.
