Discover Dogs at Excel, London – 4 weeks to go

discover-dogs-2011In 4 weeks, a team of Southern Dachshund Association Committee and members will be hosting the Dachshund booths at Discover Dogs. We’ll be there to share our passion for Dachshunds with members of the public. If previous years are anything to go by, there will be big queues to cuddle a Dachshund.

Discover Dogs is a brilliant way for potential owners to meet the breed and talk to experienced owners about what they are like to live with. We don’t pull any punches; Dachshunds are great little dogs, but they need knowledgable and committed owners to train them to be good pets.

We have seen an enormous rise in registrations in Mini Smoothsin recent years; in 2015 they accounted for just under a quarter of the Hound Group. This increase in popularity has no doubt been fuelled by their frequent appearance in television and press advertising campaigns. Mini Smooths also have a number of celebrity owners and are seen regularly on programmes such as Gogglebox. We worry that a combination of today’s celebrity culture and “must have one now” attitudes are leading to unsuitable owners buying from unsuitable breeders and importers who are driving up prices. Discover Dogs gives us an opportunity to educate potential buyersand point them to all the excellent advice published by the Dachshund Breed Council.

There’s lots to see and do at Discover Dogs, with around 200 breeds, activities, competitions and displays.
