At Aashudna we acknowledge the most important aspect of breeding is to breed healthy, sound puppies with excellent temperaments. That's why we back screen, complete all the relevant testing on our breeding dogs, our health results can be publicly viewed on the National Dachshunds Club's health database.

Home environment

Aashudna puppies are whelped, and raised inside the family home. The Mother (Dam) has free access to puppies at all time. Around 6 weeks, puppies are moved to our common area where they are provided more room, and toilet training commences on synthetic grass. They are slowly introduced to other dachshunds in the yard…

Additional Tests

Aashudna Dachshunds (Registered ANKC / Dogs Aust. Breeder) conducts 8 additional tests available for the Dachshund (Miniature).

stethoscope iconPhysical Test

This is a type of hypothyroidism which can occur in any breed and can be caused by many different things. It is more common in some breeds compared to others, so in these breeds it is recommended that breeding dogs have a blood test to show they have normal thyroid levels at the time of breeding.

stethoscope iconPhysical Test

An eye certificate means the breeder has had their breeding dogs examined by a veterinary ophthalmologist, to confirm they are not affected by any eye conditions which may be passed down genetically to their puppies. If relevant for the breed, it also includes running DNA tests to confirm the dog is not a genetic carrier of hereditary eye diseases, such as Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA). It includes breeders who have participated in the Australian Canine Eye Scheme (ACES).

stethoscope iconPhysical Test

A heart certificate indicates that a breeding dog has been screened for heart disease such as DCM or MMVD. Auscultation alone is only accepted as a screening method if performed by a veterinary cardiologist or a GP vet certifying an OFA Basic Cardiac Screen. Echocardiography is an accepted screening method via GP or cardiologist.

dna iconGenetic Test

Mucopolysaccharidosis is a genetic lysosomal storage disease that can cause various problems including stunted growth and bone deformities. There are a few different variants of this disease that have been identified in different breeds. For many breeds there are DNA tests available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying the condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (NCL) is a neurodegenerative disorder found in many breeds of dog. 7 varieties have been identified so far, affecting different breeds. There are DNA tests for each type, to identify whether a breeding dog might be carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI), also known as ‘brittle bone disease’, is an inherited disease in both humans and animals, causing bone fragility and fracturing. As it is a genetic disease, breeding parents can be tested to ensure it is not passed onto their puppies.

dna iconGenetic Test

Sarcoglycan Deficient Muscular Dystrophy (SDMD) is a genetic disease causing a stiff gait, exercise intolerance and difficulty swallowing in young Miniature Dachshunds. There is now a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.

stethoscope iconPhysical Test

Many breeds with screw-tails or long backs are prone to congenital spinal abnormalities such as hemivertebrae or disc calcification. These can cause spinal kinks and instability resulting in a high rate of slipped discs and spinal injury. Breeders can conduct xrays to identify if a breeding dog has a high risk of spinal instability. These dogs should not be bred. Some breeders will also xray puppies at 6-8 weeks old to confirm the status of their spine for new owners.

Why we got involved in breeding

I was looking for a new challenge, showing and campaigning my dogs has allowed me to meet some wonderful people and create lasting friendships. Breeding dachshunds is secondary to this and not something I do lightheartedly.

Our special touch

I breed chocolate and tan dachshunds. My dachshunds have all the hallmarks of the breed. Dachshunds have been bred to maintain these hallmarks for certain purposes' for 100's of years, and I choose to continue this tradition. That way, any new owner can exactly know and predict the personality type and quality of…
