Dach Holiday (pronounced Doc Holiday, from the movie "Tombstone") Miniature Dachshunds is located about 25 miles east of San Antonio, TX, between Seguin and Marion, on 7 1/2 acres of puppy playground. In 2005 we began with one pair of adorable dachshunds, and now our family has grown to 12! We raise only miniature dachshunds so we specialize in breeding happy healthy dogs. We give each of our litters lots of love, attention, and photography. They are born indoors and stay indoors for the first 4-5 weeks. All of our dogs are AKC registered (puppies come with limited AKC registration), and all shots/worming are kept on a very accurate schedule. We have longhair and smooth coats in various colors. All of our dogs are our personal pets. Dachshunds, as a breed, love people and lots of attention!
Before purchasing one of our puppies, we ask that you're certain you are ready for a life-long commitment to this dog. They need shelter, care, food, love, and attention...not only as puppies, but also as adults. They should not be kept in kennels all day and when you don't have time to spend with them. Dachshunds are very intelligent dogs with loving temperaments and are easily trained with patience, care, and time. Dachshund owners (or rather, those owned by dachshunds) are a special breed of their own.
**I do not sell for hobby breeding. A great deal of time, research, and personal experience has gone into raising quality dogs. I do not agree with the mindset of "I have 2 dogs, let's have puppies!" Therefore, all puppies will go home with limited AKC papers (no breeding rights). If a legitimate breeder is interested in adding one of my puppies to their family, I will review their website and ask for references before agreeing to the sale. $100 will be added to the price for full AKC papers.
Your puppy comes complete with a vaccine at 6 weeks, parvo-only vaccine at 4 and 8 weeks, and worming every 2 weeks starting at birth. We release the puppies to their new homes at 8 weeks of age, when they have been away from Mama for a while and are eating dry food. The puppies go home with limited AKC paperwork, a record of all their wormings/shots, a 1-year health guarantee, tips on potty training, a dog food rating sheet, a small bag of the food they have been eating (Nature's Recipe Puppy), and a fleece blanket. Since our puppies are raised outdoors for several weeks, they are very quick to be house-trained, and it helps build their immunity. We are often told how quickly they learn to tell them when they need out.
The dog food we use is ANF Holistic from HEB for the adults. We use Blue Buffalo Puppy for the puppies (Petsmart or Petco). All food is coated with food-grade diatomaceous earth as a holistic approach to parasite prevention (adults and puppies).
Note about Deposits (Down Payments)
If you are paying a deposit on a puppy it is considered a down payment, and you are entering into an agreement with Dach Holiday to purchase that puppy. Once you have decided on the puppy you want and notified us, a 50% deposit is required to hold the puppy until it is ready. This can be a personal check, cash, or money order. Deposits should be hand-delivered or postmarked within 3 business days of decision. I highly recommend you mail your deposit with a tracking number. A few deposits have been lost in the mail. A puppy will only be held for that period of time. DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
If for any reason you change your mind and decide not to follow through with the purchase you will not receive a refund for the deposit. If the puppy were to get sick or die after a deposit has been received by us we will apply it to a comparable pup. If we do not have a comparable pup then you will receive a refund.
Deposits are accepted on puppies under the age of 8 weeks, for puppies over the age of 8 weeks we require the full purchase amount to be paid regardless of when you want to pick it up.
