I became interested and fell in love with pure bred Standard Wirehaired Dachshunds in the fall of 2008 and was fortunate to purchase my first show quality bitch from the wonderful and reputable breeder Debra Wold of the outstanding Matsutake Kennels. She finished  quickly in Canada and now is pursuing an American conformation title.

Cahladen Kennel was started in the spring of 2010, with a goal of breeding top quality Standard Wirehaired Dachshunds that will excel on all levels, in and out of the show ring.

Cahlan won first place in his age category and made everyone so proud. Cahlan often helps his mom care for, exercise and train the family dogs and does so with wonderful enthusiasm.

The Cahladen of Cahladen Kennels comes from the combination of both Ayden`s and Cahlan`s names
