Welcome to Stargang


Stargang Kennels started in 1965 as a hobby for Ellen Blackburn.  Over the years it has become one of the most successful British Dachshund show kennels.  A key factor in the success has been first Ellen's daughter Joanne and then granddaughter Heather becoming expert handlers and International Show Judges.

In 2013 Ch. Sonderbar Billie Jean at Stargang became the all time record holder of Challenge Certificates for a UK Miniature Smooth Haired Dachshund Bitch.

Stud Dogs

We have available various stud dogs which are enthusiastic in their duties!  If you are looking for an appropriate dog please see the Stud Dogs section for more details.

DNA Health Testings

We are passionate about the health and wellbeing of our dogs.  We implemented DNA testing as soon as the technique became available to ensure that hereditary issues such as PRA and Lafora (see About, Health for details) were bred out.  DNA status is available to any buyer of a Stargang dog.
