The mission of the Dachshund Club of America is to
promote the natural qualities of all purebred dachshunds. The club supports one standard of the breed as adopted by the membership and approved by the American Kennel Club as the only standard of excellence by which Dachshunds shall be judged. The Dachshund Club of America promotes canine health and wellbeing and ethical sportsmanship in all competitions, and protects and advances the interest of the breed. The Dachshund Club of America promulgates maintaining the dachshund as one breed with three varieties and two sizes.

TheDCA Board voted at the Oct 2012 meeting to list on the DCA website any DCA member who has been nominated or selected for the AKC's Lifetime Achievement Award. The recipient in the Performance category for 2012 was none other than Jean Dieden, DVM. Congratulations to Jean!
