Dachshunds Working A Brush Pile

It has been a long hot, and dry summer in Iowa. Thankfully the fall hunting seasons aren’t too far off. Recently my Teckels Scout and Echo have been working a couple of brush piles in the yard. They have yet to catch the critters that they are after, but I enjoy watching them dig in the brush and get excited.  Although Teckels can excel at blood tracking, they are versatile and enjoy pursuing anything that spurs on their prey drive.

Available Hunting and Tracking Wirehaired Dachshund Litter

I received a recent email from Laurel Whistance- Smith. She currently has an available litter of pups. I have been around her dogs and some of their offspring and would recommend them to anyone looking for a quality pup. I have included the information below. Please contact Laurel for any other info.

I have a nice litter of 7 puppies incl 4 females which are 6.5 weeks old.  They are potential blood tracking dogs and hunting/performance events dogs.  They are out of my FC Hexelein Pantel von Lowenherz SE by my young male FC Strolch von Lowenherz JE who is a son of my Lily (a top 10 Field Trial dog in the US and Master Earthdog in Canada) X Jeanneney’s FCTommy who earned a perfect score in blood tracking at the recent NATC event in Quebec.  Strolch became a Field Champion at 10.5 months and recently earned his Junior Earthdog title at one year.  This litter is a culmination of my 2 lines of very good dogs who have produced good blood tracking dogs and who are themselves multi-talented in their performance achievements obedience, tracking, earthdog, field trials for 5 generations.


If you know of anyone who might be interested in these puppies please have them contact me.  Thanks.  Laurel
