"She is just gorgeous! A perfect fit for our little family. She plays with the cat and lets him be the boss. She loves it when we have visitors, especially children. She has my mum and my husband wrapped around her paw. She doesn't whinge when she is left at home"
Tahlie - TAS
"Best dogs ever!
Yogi has the best temperament it really blows me out he is so chilled out and snuggly. My sisters dachshund is crazy, not like my Yogi."
Maddi - QLD
"As Daisy's new mumma I appreciate that she grew up with other dogs and all the outside and training you guys did with her because almost nothing seems to phase her as she was conditioned to it earlier in life."

Welcome to Dogtails Avalon!
We are Johan and Larissa Pretorius. Avalon is small, family-owned Dachshund kennel based on King Island, Australia. Together with Johan’s parents and his sister, we are part of Dog Tails King Island Collective.
Our dogs are all part of our family and live in our home with us on our small farm. We give all our dogs the best food available and strive to breed exceptional pups with great temperaments. We specialise in cream long hair mini-dachshunds, and all our pups go through early neurological stimulation to ensure that our puppies are robust and outgoing. We can't wait to give you lots of love and joy from the newest member of your family!
