Breed Standards:

Ian Seath has written an “Illustrated and extended Guide to the UK Dachshund Breed Standard“.  Read the UK Breed Standard, with illustrations from JP Sayer’s “Standard of Points”.  An illustrated Quick Guide from the Breed Council is here.  The UK Breed Standard was amended in January 2009 and the link here gives an explanation of the changes made.

The Breed Council has published a Guide to Critique Writing for Dachshund Judges.

The FCI Standard and Illustrated FCI Standard.  The US Breed Standard and an animated interpretation.  The DCA Acceptable Colour Guide  provides useful guidance on how to recognise the difference between Dapple (acceptable), Double-Dapple (not acceptable) and Piebald (not acceptable).  Download the DCA’s “Quick Guide to Judging the Dachshund“.

Download a clause-by-clause comparison of the UK, US and FCI Breed Standards. The FCI Standard was updated in 2017 – find out what’s changed.
