The Dachshund Breed Council
The Dachshund Breed Council was set up to be a united voice for the Dachshund Breed in the UK. It is a Kennel Club registered organisation and, as such, has to comply with the Kennel Club rules and regulations for Breed Councils. There are no individual members of a Breed Council, the members are the Dachshund Breed Clubs who all pay a membership subscription to finance the running of the Breed Council. Membership is open to all registered Breed Clubs for the breed. The Breed Council has to submit Annual Returns to The Kennel Club, just as its member clubs do, and hold an AGM. The Breed Council's Health Sub-committee includes veterinary and genetics expertise.
Dachshund Health UK is our Registered Charity. All our fundraising is for education, research and health improvement projects, and activities that benefit UK Dachshunds.
