Dachshund Town 2018

We would like to thank Sam and Kerry, the organisers of Dachshund Town 2018, for allowing the Breed Council to have a stand at the event in Milton Keynes on 9th June. They generously also supplied a hamper for us to raffle in aid of funds for our Charity: Dachshund Health UK.

There were lots of very well-behaved Dachshunds enjoying a day in the sun with fun show classes and other competitions.

We had the opportunity to meet with many owners and offer advice on buying and owning a Dachshund. A few dogs were over-weight and we had discussions about diet and exercise with their owners.

Among the numerous stands, Dachshund Rescue and The Red Foundation both also had a presence and were fundraising for their good causes. Both these rescue organisations are reporting an increase in calls for help and, like us, worry about the over-popularity of Mini Smooths. The current demand is fuelling an increase in illegal imports, puppy farming and breeders jumping on the bandwagon to sell “rare coloured” Dachshunds.
