Once you decide on the puppy you want and put a deposit on it, we remove it from availability for anyone else and hold it only for you until you come and pick it up - PayPal does it automatically through the Inventory Control feature on their Buy Now buttons, and we’ll do the same thing with cash customers. We may have other potential buyers for your puppy, but we will not “oversell,” as the airlines do, on the off-chance that one buyer will back out of the deal, leaving the pup to the other buyer - and we certainly can't split a puppy between two buyers!

However, should you decide you do NOT want your pup, we will NOT refund your deposit. You can transfer the money to another of our puppies, but we do not return deposits. This is standard procedure with many businesses, including nearly all other kennels we know of.

Our Sales Agreement plainly states the refund policy on fully-purchased puppies. Refunds on puppies that have gone home are only given under certain specified conditions, which must be fully met. Please read the Sales Agreement completely before you buy a pup, and if you have any questions about it, please call and talk to Janet.

Flickennel Dachshunds
      Colorado Dachshunds with ALTITUDE!

We've specialized in raising miniature dachshunds with outstanding dispositions and conformity to breed standards for over 47 years. We offer the best little friends you will ever have, in nearly every size, coat, color and pattern known to dachshunds - which have more combinations of those than any other dog breed - someone said around 500!!! Yes, dachshunds do come in more colors, coats and patterns than just the ever-popular smooth red             or black & tan!

      ​Our AKC and PACFA-inspected and approved kennel is open
to visitors daily, BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, and ONLY between 2:00 and 4:00 PM. We are proud of both our dogs and our facility - which is also our home. Our pups are raised "under foot," accustomed to regular family noises and attention, other dogs and people, so they're prepared to go to your home and fit right in. We have lots of repeat customers who rave about the personalities of our pups, so you may buy with the assurance that we're doing it right!
Please click the blue menu-bar buttons at the top of each page to browse our litter pages and choose your new best buddy. Feel free to call or email with any questions or comments you may have, and to make an appointment to come up the mountain and fall in love...

                Happy Tails to You!
We love "alumni" pictures - email us your favorite photo of your Flick pup, and we'll display OUR favorites from what we get, right here on this page! All will eventually be posted on an alumni page, but the funniest, sweetest and best ones will get top-billing right here.

Your continued visits to see what we're doing are greatly appreciated! See the "Wienerful News" page for all sorts of "blog" stuff - it's where we tell about what's new on the site and at the kennel. (Newest entries are at the bottom of the page.)

To see puppy pictures, just click on the NEW LITTERS button on the menu-bar at the top of each page. To buy a pup, left-click on its PayPal Buy Now button, choose a drop-down payment option and click it. You will be redirected to the PayPal site to complete the transaction. PayPal sends us an email notice of each sale, but please CALL US to let us know, so we don't resell the same puppy before we get a chance to check our email!

If you've looked us ALL over and still don't see what you want, please call and ask - we sometimes have more pups we haven't had time to post yet - we just might have your "dream-wiener" in the nursery waiting for you! Be sure and read the informational pages we've put at the end of our menu - there's a lot of good stuff there! We'll keep adding more to it, too - especially the "101 Things" page. We just can't say enough about our "wienderful" little sausage dogs!

NOTICE - Our PayPal Buy Now buttons on each litter page, for each puppy, are supposed to be functional. We try to delete the button as soon as we know a pup is purchased, but we don't always get to do it right away. If you see a pup you want, try the button, and if it does NOT work, it is because someone else has already purchased that puppy and deactivated the button - PayPal's Inventory Control system is programmed to tell us via email when someone has used a button, and disable that button so it can't be used again. We would appreciate a phone-call from you when you buy a pup, just so we KNOW about it - we don't sit at the computer all the time, and don't always get to check our email throughout the day. Thank you!​

You can’t buy loyalty, so they say;
I bought it though, the other day.
You can’t buy friendship, tried and true,
Well just the same, I bought that too.

I made my bid, and on the spot
Bought love and faith and a whole job lot
Of happiness, so all in all
The purchase price was pretty small.

I bought a single trusting heart,
That gave devotion from the start.
If you think these things are not for sale,
Buy a bright-eyed puppy with a wagging tail.

If you've gotten all the way down here and are STILL looking for the puppies we have for sale, please go back to the very top of the page and click on the blue menu button for "NEW Litters"!

Each pup is individually pictured, described and priced on that page. We also show their parents (if we have pictures of them) so you get some idea of what it came from, and what your pup will look like as an adult. Plus, when you come to collect your new BFF (Best Furry Friend), you will see and recognize their family members who still live here! It's almost like a Where's Waldo puzzle with some folks, looking for and finding dogs at the kennel that they've seen here on our website. You can play the same game when you come to visit!
    We've been raising dachshunds for nearly 50 years, so we've learned a thing or two. Except for rabies, we do all of our own vaccinations and wormings right here, in-house, because SICK & DYING pets go to vet clinics and hospitals, where exposure to all kinds of germs is guaranteed. It is far too easy for baby puppies to pick up a deadly illness there, or to catch pneumonia simply from being chilled while outside the nursery.  NO ONE except our staff goes into our nursery or handles the unweaned pups, to prevent contamination of the unvaccinated babies. Your pup will be current on shots and wormings for its age when you take it home. We do not remove dewclaws, as it is not needed and is only a cosmetic surgery. Dachshunds very seldom have hind dewclaws, and are not bothered by their front ones.
(This at left is NOT a link to go to PayPal! See the New Litters page and each pup's listing for their own buttons, to pay for a pup.)
We are now offering 6-months-same-as-cash financing through PayPal, for our USA customers! Check it out, and if you qualify, consider getting TWO puppies at the same time!
This is one of ours, like NO other we've EVER seen! Marilyn & Elvis's daughter seems to be a chimera, a dog who's her own twin, both black AND red! Yes, she's a Cash Clan girl! Ki-Mera is staying RIGHT HERE and makin' puppies, starting with 8 in her first litter, born 6-22-15!!!
Welcome to

      ​​Colorado Dachshunds with ALTITUDE!!!
Isn't it time you let one follow you home?
I just wanted to let you know how wonderful Maude is. We picked her up on July 29 [2014] but it feels like she has been part of our family forever. We have one other dachshund and two rescue Chiweenies, the four of them get along famously. Only minor conflicts over toys or blankets but nothing major. Maude loves our backyard and has, just today, discovered that she can chase the squirrels.

She is beautiful, curious, sweet and very, very smart. Potty training was a breeze, and she has already mastered basic commands such as sit and stay.

We are so very happy that we got her from you. You obviously take excellent care of your dogs.

Here are a couple of pictures to show how she has adjusted.

Thanks again.

A happy buyer's testimonial...
USDA regulations prohibit us from shipping our dogs to buyers UNLESS they will be used in a breeding program or for showing. We can no longer ship companion/pet-only puppies to our buyers.
