1. To form a brown (coffee)-colored
and dappled Miniature Dachshund population.

breeders are rather afraid of working with “exotic” colours, others prefer
“classic”, and the third have to start their work with standard 7-9 kilos
weighted dogs, which have necessary colour, and a downsizing is a very laborious
and prolonged process (no less than 4-8 generations, depending on the size
of original dogs). For all that
the received small Dachshund
often don’t inherit wanted colour genes.
construct the pedigrees of our breeding kennel dogs in a specific way, in
order to preserve in posterity a secure presence of
a brown colour gene, to miniaturize dogs, and also to receive, if possible,
a maximum quantity of brown and dappled Dachshund.

2. To perfect a brown and
dappled Dachshund conformation up to the CHAMPION level.
I have already told, the BOB Miniature Dachshund
are mainly red and black-and-tan dogs yet.
due conformation level and size brown females have appeared during the last
years, but things are much worse with dappled Dachshund.
Only a planned
breeding work will correct the situation, and Miniature rings will be able
to boast of spangling and really miniature “coloured”
try to mate our “coloured” females only with the best males of Russia choosing the latter not by quantity of
loud titles, but by the quality of their posterity.

3. To preserve and to develop
Miniature Dachshund working qualities.
peculiarity of the Miniature Dachshund
popularity forming in our country brought the “dwarfs” (zwerg-dachshund)
qualities into decrease and, in a number of cases, into loss.
the time of USSR breeding permission was given only to dogs, which
had the fox working certificate. But by the time of the first Miniature Dachshund appearance pre-existing cynology organizations
fell apart and first clubs and breeding kennels appeared, where the dogs
breeding value was judged only by quantity of victories on dog shows and
by the puppies cost. Not only Dachshund with unchecked working qualities, but even those,
openly afraid of beasts were admitted to breeding.
Just at that time an opinion about a Miniature Dachshund inability of true work was moulded. An original Miniature and Rabbit Dachshund baiting system “through the gate” even sprang up.
doggy was only to yap on a fox, which was separated from a Dachshund
by a partition (a gate), and the “working dog” was ready. Other owners didn’t consider necessary even
to show a beast to their Dachshund:
a lot of CHAMPIONS of those years had only blood trail
situation has much improved. FCI requirements stipulate that the Dachshund
must have a working quality certificate to receive the “International champion”
title. It makes breeders to place emphasis not only on dogs’ exterior, but
also on their working qualities.
Practically each dog of our
breeding kennel has working diplomas and certificates. We think that Dachshund
is first of all the gun dog, and a small size can’t hinder a true warrior
(5.7 kilos weighted Topa had two diplomas of the first degree – he worked splendidly
by exchanges; 2.8 weighted rabbit Uma (Lekol Bobby Charm Zainka Yozhkin Sun) works with a fox
by short painful grips).

4. Maximum possible downsizing under conditions of points 1-3.
breeding type may frequently be lost after a considerable downsizing: a skeleton may lighten, a muscular system
may weaken, features of “dwarfness” – domed skull, narrow muzzle, protruding
eyes, excessive excitability, and
cowardly conduct – may appear. So a build type displacement from strong to
tender takes place. This build is more typical for “decorative” breeds (Italian
greyhound, bolonka and so on), but not for gun dogs, as the Dachshund
in practice we can avoid such phenomena however,
and 2-2.5 weighted Dachshund
can practically be free from build type displacement and have excellent working
qualities. One of the aims of our breeding kennel is to receive very small
dogs of perfect type.
