Many people in North America do not realize that the dachshund is the consummate small hunting dog of Europe. NATC encourages the breeding and training of dachshunds that are recognized, respected and used for their specific hunting capabilities in North America. NATC believes that in certain hunting situations, particularly blood tracking and hawking, a good hunting dachshund is more useful than any other breed.
