I am a breeder of Miniature Longhaired and Miniature Smooth Haired Dachshunds. I do show my dogs but first and foremost they are part of my family and as such share our home.

I am extremely  proud of their achievements. 


Type, temperament and the health of the breed is important to us so ALL our stud dogs and breeding stock  are DNA tested CLEAR


Dinkidax has three stud dogs available at stud. Dinkidax Grisham, black and cream, sire of many show winning puppies, Lokmadi Rio Bravo at Dinkidax, son of Grisham, a shaded red, who now has his stud book number with the kennel club and a proven stud dog, and my lovely Simon, Dinkidax Right On Cue, a shaded cream boy, already Crufts 2020 qualified, now available to approved bitches.

Simon and Rio are winning their classes wherever they go.

I rarely breed only when I want a puppy for myself.   Always striving to improve my lines for the benefit and health of the breed.  

The Dinkidax Show Kennel strives to breed to the correct type and standard as laid down by the Kennel Club and The Dachshund Club Breeders Council. Please beware of breeders who are not members of the Kennel Club Assured Breeders Scheme and/or members of The Dachshund Breeder Council and whose puppies are not registered with the Kennel Club. Please check that puppies have a recent DNA test certificate for the Progressive Retinal Atrophy Gene when buying from breeders advertising puppies for sale. I genuinely love Miniature Long Haired/Miniature Smooth Haired Dachshunds and always put in 110% effort with no expense spared in ensuring these little guys all have the very best possible start in life. Dinkidax has achieved a great deal of success from  present and  past show/breeding stock. All dogs are home bred from excellent show winning lines.

Dinkidax has two proven stud dogs available. All DNA clear. Dinkidax Grisham, miniature longhaired (one black and cream), and one miniature smooth haired, Chocolate and Tan.

I am a fully paid paid up member of The Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme.  Under the ABS Scheme conditions I was visited by the Accredited Breeders Scheme Inspector in September 2017, - I am happy to relate that the Dinkidax Kennels passed with flying colours and is now a KC AS UK certificate holder.  Also joint licensed breeder with my husband of the Francanmag Pugs with the DMBC.

Miniature Dachshunds are the love of my life. They are the most outgoing  little darlings but can be the most cantankerous creatures. They love to be part of the every day activities and I love to be part of their lives. I have decided that I Live with them, not they live with me.

 I do my utmost to ensure these little guys get the very best start in life unfortunately others don't!  PLEASE PLEASE read the information on this site BEFORE buying a puppy. I document, photograph and video (where possible) everything I do and so that anyone can always see I am 1000% open and honest. I pride myself on my honesty and straight to the point no sugar coating tell it like it really is; and I hope you appreciate that honest attitude in my web site as everything here is truly written from the heart.
Firstly to me Miniature Long Haired/Miniature Smooth Haired Dachshunds are my interest/hobby and NOT a business and as such their welfare always comes first with no expense spared.

Miniature Long Haired/Miniature Smooth Haired Dachshunds can be affected by quite a few genetic issues so all our Miniature Long Haired/Miniature Smooth Haired Dachshunds are PRA tested (Dogs affected go blind) so I neither own and have only ever produced one PRA affected dog  who was castrated and put in a pet home).

 I breed for long ribbing to help prevent any back issues as well as chests that are clear off the ground. For me a Miniature Long Haired Dachshunds and Miniature Smooth Haired Dachshunds should be fit for life and fit for purpose - all of my dogs are.

They love to exercise in open country and a ploughed field is the greatest thing to overcome. I love to see their ears flapping as they jump up and over the turrets created by the tractor. I am lucky I have access to open farmland where my dogs excel in their agility.  Exercise is the first and foremost important thing in a dachshund life. They are bred as sight hounds and love to hunt their prey be it rabbit, squirrel or game fowl.  If your dachshund is given the opportunity to seek it's quarry and given the exercise it requires on a daily basis then it will maintain the required weight. sadly most dachshunds are just kept as lap dogs and spend more of their time sat on their owner's lap or left to fend for themselves where they don't get any exercise at all.

Whether you buy from me or another breeder please, please, make sure you take every precaution to ensure you buy a genuine above board healthy Miniature Long Haired Dachshund/Miniature Smooth Haired puppy. Then you will almost certainly avoid the pain, anguish and very large vets bills that almost always happen when buying from low level breeders and puppy farmers. Please be aware that if people didn't buy from them they would soon go out of business and no more dogs would have to suffer. Cheap to buy, no papers, discount for no papers, no DNA tests, don't know what DNA tests are, will almost certainly mean very expensive later! Regrettably a large percentage of "breeders" are quite frankly completely clueless and largely disinterested in understanding even the bare basics of breeding genetics. They therefore get taken in with urban myths and propagate these to confuse everyone else. Beware of these people and always triple check what you are told. If in doubt check out  the breeder with the Assured Breeders Scheme with the Kennel Club. If they are not registered on this site then don't go there.

Need advice even if you are buying/bought from someone else? Then please drop me a line, I will always try to help and if I don't know the answer then I will put you in touch with someone else who does.

I have held jointly with my husband a breeders licence with the D.M.B.C, for the last ten years . In addition Kennel Club  UKAS breeder.

Photo  of Miniature Longhaired  Dachshund Dinkidax Amaryllis who was my first Championship Show winning Bitch. She won 1st Junior Bitch and RCC under Janet Lovick-Gibbs at the Southern Dachshund Ch. Show as far back as 2003. Much has happened since then.


I  breed a variety of colours of MINIATURE LONGHAIRED and MINIATURE SMOOTH HAIRED DACHSHUNDS  including Chocolate and Tan,  Black and Cream,  Black and Tan, Clear Red, Shaded Red and both Red brindle and cream brindles. even Silver Dapples. All my puppies are tested by the AHT for Progressive Retinal Atrophy before going to their new owners. I have strived over the last fourteen years to build a kennel of CLEAR DNA dogs. both mini longhaired and mini smooth haired  as a result of mating them to CLEAR DNA stud dogs have produced in the main CLEAR puppies.

Please beware of breeders who are not members of the Kennel Club Assured Breeders Scheme and/or members of The Dachshund Breeder Council and whose puppies are not registered with the Kennel Club. Please check that puppies have a recent DNA test certificate for the Progressive Retinal Atrophy Gene when buying from breeders advertising puppies for sale. Also to not be tempted to give out your bank details to advertisers on the net selling puppies.  There are many scams about with people just trying to get your money with the promise that they will send the puppy by courier on receipt of your bank details. DO NOT FALL INTO THIS TRAP.

Please be aware that whilst it is a wonderful achievement to show your dogs at Crufts it is not the be all and end all of showing. My aim is to breed Miniature Dachshunds to the standard as laid down by the Kennel Club and produce puppies from Clear DNA parents. Show status whilst gratifying does not by any means prove quality. 

Our track record has proved that quality bred puppies from selective breeding stock is second to none.
