Southern Dachshund Association Christmas lunch 2018 – photos

Leave a comment

More than 70 people enjoyed Christmas lunch followed by a Match and Fancy Dress competition. Thanks to Laura Sexton who was our judge.

Thank you to our Discover Dogs helpers

Leave a comment

The Officers and Committee of the SDA would like to thank our team of helpers for bringing their hounds to the Dachshund booths at Discover Dogs, ExCel this weekend. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to help potential buyers and current owners to learn more about the breed.

Hopefully, we helped people understand they are not “toy dogs” and that they need plenty of mental stimulation and physical exercise.

All the dogs were brilliantly behaved and great ambassadors. They had so many cuddles and lots of pictures taken. Facebook and Instagram must be full of Dachshunds!
