AKC recently visited Miniature Wirehaired Dachshund breeders Travis Wright and Johnny Hagerman of RoundAbout Kennel to chat about their experiences as breeders and their love of dogs.
Meet Peggy, Norma Rae, Miss Priss, Olivia, and Luther — the five cute pups from their most recent litter — in the above video.
The pair also shared with us why education and mentors are so important when it comes to breeding, their advice for people interested in getting started with their first litter, and their thoughts on why we need good breeders to keep breeding dogs.
We are looking for other breeders like Travis and Johnny to share their stories to help promote breeders and the sport of dogs. If you have a great story or experience to share, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
