A Sand Dollar Dachshund
What makes our dogs better?
All of our dogs are OFA certified normal hearts (their tickers beat correctly!), normal patellas (their kneecaps stay in the correct place), and PRA clear. PRA is Progressive Retinal Atrophy, which causes the retina to detach from the eye and leads to blindness.
A Forever Lifeline
We microchip all of our puppies with AKC reunite chips and keep records of all puppies/chip numbers. We are here for the lifetime of any Sand Dollar Dachshund, including if they ever need a place to call home- they can always come home. We are only a call/text/message/email away for the lifetime of your dog for help, advice, and of course pictures!
Early Neurological Stimulation
We practice "Early Neurological Stimulation" (ENS) with all of our puppies.
"The US Military developed this method designed to improve the performance of future military working dogs, according to the Breeding Better Dogs program developed by Dr. Carmen Battaglia, esteemed breeder, judge, seminar presenter, and AKC board member."

We take sending puppies to a new home very seriously. When we send your puppy home, we try our best to give you informational articles and items you may need, or items to make the transition easier. In your custom SDD tote you will receive an AKC Folder with relevant informational articles, your puppies microchip information and vet record, a custom fridge magnet made with your pup's paw prints, an SDD sticker, a blanket and toy that smell like the litter/dam, a small bag of Purina Pro Plan Puppy Kibble, some puppy pads for the ride home, and other small assorted items.
