The National Dachshund Council
The National Dachshund Council (NDC) is an affiliate of Dogs Australia (formerly Australian National Kennel Council). Our primary role is to disseminate information from Dogs Australia to Member Clubs representing the Dachshund fraternity Australia-wide. Our secondary role is to act as an information medium between Member Clubs and Dogs Australia. Member Clubs submit agenda items that are discussed first at the Club level, then a nationwide vote is taken. The business of the NDC is done in a democratic manner. Affiliation with Dogs Australia permits Member Clubs to host National Dachshund Specialty Shows. These National Shows are a comprehensive “showcase” for our breed.
The are 5 member clubs representing States and/or regions in Australia that are affiliated with the NDC.
