Photo Introduction:

We would like to introduce ourselves to you, so you can get know us better!
We will be adding more photos so that you can see the "Benderdachs" home. 
We will do interior pictures first, and updated exterior views this summer.
We know that you care about where your puppy comes from, & this is a way for you to get to know us.
Our house is not fancy, it's comfortable ... It's our "Humble, Doxie-loving home!"    

Our home was an abandoned farm house when we  bought it. It was in pretty sad shape from siting empty for several years.  Updating it has been a constant project, but we are getting there... Slowly!

Our kitchen is  fairly spacious. The dogs have lots of room to romp and play, or they can  pull out a blanket and take a nap! /2018

Having dogs underfoot is normal for us! Myla is hoping for a scrap to fall./2018

I used to think dogs didn't belong on the furniture. Then we got dachshunds! LOL /2018

The kitchen is the only room in the house that doesn't have dachshund decore...Yet! (Yes, even the bathroom is decorated doxie!) There were 4 dogs in here when I took the picture, they must have got camera shy. /2018

When famly comes to visit, all available laps get filled with dachshunds! It is good socialization, and they love the attention.

Here are a few "helpful health hints" that I want to share. 
Brush your dachshunds teeth... Even if it is only "once in a while."  Once is better than never! Even occassional brushing can improve your dachshunds breath and improve his overall health. A routine cleaning from your veteranarian will still be necessary at some point. Take a few minutes to trim his nails, too! It is very common for dachsunds to have nails left to grow longer than they should.
Feed a HIGH QUALITY dogfood! This is important. Although they are names you know, "Dog Chow" and "Pedigree" are not high quality foods. Check labels. Buy food with the FIRST ingredient as MEAT. Avoid corn based food! Check out this website for ideas: www.dogfoodadvisor.com  We feed Diamond Naturals Small Breed Puppy to our pups, and Taste of the Wild Grain Free mixed with Nature's Recipe Grain Free to our adults.  
Consider "holistic" supplements for your dachshund. They are prone to back injuries, so keeping their spine and joints healthy is important. Glucosamine & Chondroitin is proven to be beneficial to  humans and animals, for joint health. Other good supplements are Ester C, (Its a great anti-oxidant) and Turmeric (Is a natural anti-imflammitory)
