ANKC Survey Results
Recently the ANKC conducted a survey to ascertain the opinion of registered Dachshund owners as to whether they wanted to retain the current Pre 1987 English Standard or change to the current English Standard.
The response received has indicated overwhelming support to change to the current English Standard.
Effective from 1 July 2009 the six  separate standards, one for each variety, will comply with the current English Standard of a single standard for the six  varieties. The only variations are in the “Coat” and “Size” Descriptions, which detail the three  different coat types and the two  different sizes.
The current single English Standard varies greatly from the six  Pre 1987 standards, with most section descriptions amended either in a minor or major manner.
