Thank you, Fran & Stan, for our incredible puppy, Trevor. We have had him for 3 months now, & I wanted to send you a full update as to how he is doing, & how much we are all enjoying him. Trevor is such a sweet & loving pup. He has fit right in to our household, & life in Vancouver. I should say at this point that coming out to North Battleford to pick up Trevor was a highlight for me. You were so helpful before I came out, & then when I did arrive, picking me up at the airport, welcoming me into your home & having me for dinner was above & beyond anything that I was expecting.
I could tell from being in your home that you really love these dogs, & that you are doing a great job of breeding & raising loving, well adjusted & good-natured puppies. I can also tell that you really care about each little doxie, & that you are genuinely interested in how everyone is doing once they leave your farm.
Trevor is a great fit for our family. He spends his nights sleeping with the three kids, in rotation. He loves to burrow under the covers & settle in for a good cuddle at night. He is totally adaptable with his walks & exercise. My 6 yr old can take him out on the leash around the block, or to the park up the street & back home. When I go into the forest trails on the weekend, he can join me with much bigger dogs from the neighborhood, & have an hour long run off leash through the trails. He sure is tired after that! It is amazing to me that he can adapt to both kinds of exercise, & it means that he fits in with whatever we as a family are doing. He also likes drives in the car, & will sit on somebody's lap for a cuddle while we are on our way. We are looking forward to taking Trevor on vacation this summer to the interior, where we expect he will also enjoy the beach, as well as short trips on the boat (with a lifejacket on, of course)!
The kids have really enjoyed bringing Trevor to the park, where he will chase balls & play for hours. He is equally happy with settling into the sofa with the kids for a good cuddle while watching a movie. He is always a big hit when I bring him along to school playground when it is time to pick up the kids. He loves to meet new people, but also sticks really close to the family, as he is extremely loyal. The kids have taught him to sit & to shake a paw, as well as to find & recognize certain tree stumps & flat rocks in the forest. When he jumps up on these, he gets a treat. Trevor gets along well with other dogs, & will stop & play with dogs many times his size. He is not shy when meeting new dogs, & he seems to always be up for some fun. However, he usually has a hard time convincing our cat to play with him, but he still tries!
In short, (no pun intended), this little guy is the perfect family pet. He is playful, loyal, loving, full of personality, & an overall great companion. We are so lucky that we found you, & that you let me bring this great little guy home to my family in Vancouver. Thanks for everything.

We bought a puppy from Dachshund Mania & are very happy with our dog & the personal service they provide.
They know their dogs & overflow with information on the dachshund breed. They answered every question I had & love to hear how our Jasmin is doing. The puppy pack they sent with Jasmin went above & beyond what I expected.
I could write more but I think the best testimonial to the quality of these dogs & the love of the breeders is that we have already set in motion the plans to be a return customer!
