I have been interested in the possession and subsequently in the breeding of smooth-haired dachshunds since 2005. Members of this breed of dog are despite their small body dimensions notable for their big heart. My main goal is a breeding of healthy and fine-looking smooth-haired dachshunds which however have not drifted apart from their original hunting purposes and have not lost their original hunting qualities. I consider it very important because the working breeds, among the dachshunds still belong, are due to a better selection healthier than companion breeds or than the show varieties of the originally working breeds. Sport cynology and the dog’s work plays in it’s life a very positive role. With the selection not only for beauty but also for performance we achieve the selection not only for character but also for health. Any weaker dog – as for health or character – cannot stand the working claims, because it is slow, tired, hasn‘t enough endurance and resistence not only to a bad weather and illnesses, but to a mental stress, because it is not able to concentrate for a longer time, falls into decay or on the other hand behaves hysterically, has response to a gunfire, and so on. The hunting use of the dogs where high physical deployment is necessary reveals almost everything. In the hunting, the dogs need not only a good condition and health, but also the ability to learn, cooperate and to be resistant to stress.
In year 2015,
I decided to enrich the breed of smooth-haired standard dachshunds in the Czech
Republic with a new hair color. Although it is one of the original hair color,
going up to the common ancestors of dachshunds with bloodhounds, it was never
present in the local population. Thanks to the certain conservatism I
became the first breeder in our country who started the breed of smooth-haired
standard dachshunds in the red-brindle hair color.
