Ellen & Jo

Stargang Kennels started in 1966 as a new hobby for Ellen Blackburn.  Over the years it has become one of the most successful British Dachshund show kennels.  If you want to read more about how the Stargang Dachshunds evolved over the years follow the "About Us" link above.

Joanne Blackburn (now Blackburn-Bennett) attended her first show at the grand old age of 2 weeks!  She now operates her own kennels (together with husband John) under the Shardagang name and is a well respected International show judge in her own right. Her daughter Heather is now a third generation show handler and at 12 years old has handled Shardagang Pavlova to a first Reserve Challenge Certificate (for both of them!) 

At present, our web site is still under construction. We are making an effort to present you with as much about our dogs as soon as possible. As with all enthusiasts we are more than happy to talk for hours about the dogs or keep in touch with other Dachsund people via email.

There is a full listing of contact options on the contacts page but the phone number is +44 1253 885506.  You can also contact us at Ellens e-mail address: ellen@stargang.org.uk.
