​We are located in Mundelein, Illinois.
​In the Chicagoland area. We are about a 40 min drive from Chicago.

​Here at Fairhaven Dachshunds we strive for health and temperament above all else. We breed AKC registered miniature long haired Dachshunds ONLY. We never have any other coat type, we only breed long hairs. We have only 5 dogs total in our small in-home breeding program. All of our dogs are part of our family and live in our home with us where they are very spoiled beloved family members! 

All of our dogs are health tested prior to breeding, we use Optimal Selection health panels. Optimal Selection tests for PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy) which is a very common genetic eye disease in the breed. Optimal Selection also tests for a multitude of other inherited diseases as well, it tests for hundreds of different genetic diseases! You can view our dog's health results on Optimal Selection's website, just ask us to send the link!  If you are buying a puppy from us with FULL AKC (with breeding rights), and one of the parents is a carrier for anything, we will completely cover the cost of the health panel for your puppy ($130 value). If your puppy is going to be pet only, and you still would like a health panel done please let us know! Health panels done on pet only puppies are $100.  We are also in the process of getting OFA certification on all of our breeding dog's eyes and patellas as that is recommened for the breed as well.

Our puppies are raised underfoot in our home. Each puppy leaves with a written contract/health guarantee, a spay/neuter agreement (unless buying with FULL AKC), a 3 year genetic health warranty, and ALL age appropriate vaccinations. Each and every puppy we produce is dear to our hearts. We try our very BEST to give ALL of our puppies the best start in life. Each puppy will be highly socialized prior to leaving, accustomed to every day hustle and bustle and exposed to many different sights and sounds. We start ENS (early neurological stimulation) on our pups from day 3 after birth. Our puppies are raised with Puppy Culture methods as well! More info here:  www.puppyculture.com​​

Fun fact:  We are also a USDA licensed breeder of African Pygmy Hedgehogs and are known as Fairhaven Hedgehogs in the hedgehog community. Check out our hedgehogs here: Fairhavenhedgehogs.com​​
