Welcome to the Minnesota Dachshund Club Web Site!

The Minnesota Dachshund Club ("MDC"), founded in 1945, is a non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement and welfare of the Dachshund breed.  Our members participate in a wide variety of activities with our Dachshunds: conformation shows, obedience trials, earth dog tests, field trials, tracking trials, and Canine Good Citizen tests and therapy dog work. The Club is licensed by The American Kennel Club ("AKC") to hold these events under AKC rules.
