# 1 SMOOTH DACHSHUND IN NATION 2010, 2011, 2012
We have been raising dogs for over 36 years and dachshunds for 21 years. We are committed to breed strong healthy puppies that will give their owners a lifetime of blessings! We are working hard to cross lines that have strong loins and long rib cages which will help support the spine. Our long term goal is to make the horrible back issues in dachshunds rare instead of common.
We are diligently crossing dogs that do not carry extra weight genetically. Dachshunds are known to be over weight. Shadow Prince, one of our foundation males, has been instrumental in this area. He does not carry any extra weight and consistently passes this on to most of his offspring. We also are selecting dogs wit a long strong loin and longer ribbing. Unfortunately many breed for a narrow smaller hip and this makes them look longer than they already are. When stacked for show this looks sleeker too. But what cost to the breed? We like to win who doesn't? Is it better to sacrifice a few blue ribbons and trophies for a healthier Dachshunds.
As our Dachshunds get older, have a tendency to get over weight. This also leads diabetes and all the negative health issues it alone provides. The Dachshund is an amazing dog, it is not uncommon for dachshunds to live 13 to 18 years old. I have been told that some have been known to live 20 years old.

CH Desert Dreams Step Aside Girls SL
In loving memory of my best friend, my heart, my love. Holly girl you left me to soon old girl. I still reach for you at night, hoping to talk about my worries. You got me through so much in the 7 years i had you. You gave me hope, joy, laughter and oh so many memories. I miss you so terribly. The times you would lay beside me and help me watch Netflix. Or read my books. Or just to take a much needed nap on a road trip. I miss the looks and silliness you would give me, even if some were attitude. You gave me so much courage to move on with life, and now I have to find that courage within myself on my own. Your son has done wonderful and is almost a champion just like you. He has pushed himself and so have I to make sure your memory lives on forever. Holly, I love you girl. So much. Know you have my heart for eternity. You can cross that rainbow bridge and find a happy place. You deserve to have complete joy and peace. I love you my baby girl . So so much. I will see you again one day. I know its never goodbye but ill see you later.
My heart , Your momma, Skyllar
Our Mini Cocker Spaniels
We have some beautiful babies in many colors. All of our puppies are fed fresh raw goats milk. We like our babies to get off to a great start. We also feed fresh fertilized yard eggs. These beautiful babies is an example of what we are striving for in our breeding program.
Mini Smooth Chocolate/tan Tuxedo Piebald
Dachshunds come in many colors several sources say over 170 color variations, 2 sizes and 3 different coat types, Long Coat, Smooth Coat, and Wire. The most amazing feature of the Dachshund is can live and be content in any life style. If you have young children that are in all the sports. The dachshund is completely content going to all the games and the hustle and non stop schedule. As long as the dachshund is with his/her people is very happy. More laid back style the dachshund will never leave your side and will guard his or her family and home with it's life. If you want a small dog no problem we have mini's. Want a larger dog, get a standard. There is a dachshund for every one. We always put disposition and conformation first. Cool colors are a bonus.
Our Standard Dachshunds
CKS's Mr. Automatic SL
We have been blessed with some amazing dogs and bloodlines over the last few years. We have the true standards that range form 21 to 36 lbs. These are what originally developed for Badger hunting. The standard temperament of dachshund is amazing. I fell in love with my first true standard. The Standards have more to give, basically all the wonderful things that we adore as dachshund lovers cherish about the breed is super sized. They remind me of a big laid back hug gable teddy bear. I do believe the standards are making a comeback. It has taken several years of selective breeding that I have been working on. I wanted to incorporate more color in the standards lines. I am making sure that we do not sacrifice conformation and disposition in the process.
CKS Austin of Teckelwood SL Posted by Austin was BOS over specials at the FVKC show June 24, 2013 for another 2 points. This Beautiful boy is by Meadowsweet D'Vito SL and CKS's Simply Amazing SL.

We have puppies for sale at all times. All puppies have a health guarantee. If we have a puppy that you are interested in, We are more than happy to hold a puppy exclusively for an adoptive family. Once a puppy has been selected to adopt and a deposit placed on the adoption of the puppy, the deposit can not be transferred to another puppy nor can it be refunded if the adoptive family should later change their mind about adopting the puppy. The full amount of the deposit will be applied toward the adoption fee of the puppy. The deposit will be forfeited if the final balance due on the adoption fee is not received by the date specified in the adoption papers. CKS’s then has the right to place the puppy up for adoption again. Deposits are non-refundable except in the event the puppy selected becomes unhealthy and is no longer adoptable.
