Dachshund Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 1/13/2005
I'm looking to buy a smooth coat chocolate/tan female dachshund. I've come across a few. One is registered w/ CKC but not AKC. This dog will be mostly for a pet, but I will breed her once or twice. From a breeder's point of view is the CKC registration ok? When I go to look at the puppy what should I look for & what questions should I ask in order to determine that it is a well-bred puppy?

1/15/05 AKC is the abbreviation for the American Kennel Club which was established in the United States in 1884 and is well known and accepted by other kennel organizations in most countries. It maintains a long term purebred dog registry, sanctions popular dog events, and promotes responsible dog ownership. CKC is short for either the Canadian Kennel Club (a respectable organization) or the Contintental Kennel Club (any dog can easily obtain these papers). To find out more visit www.akc.org - www.ckc.ca - www.continentalkennelclub.com. Cynthia

3/21/05 You will find with any registry there are good lines and bad lines and good breeders and bad breeders. Just find what suits you and go with it. I have both CKC and AKC. Sussie

11/21/05 AKC stands for the American Kennel Club and is the only club I recommend. When you purchase a AKC dog, then you are purchasing a pure bred and can research and look at their pedigrees, the breeding behind your pup. Why go with another kennel club when you have everything with AKC. Judy
