Tell us about yourself

My grandfather worked on a farm and was in love with the land and animals. He transmitted to me his passion and his love of animals In 2019, my wife and I shared a common idea of offering products on the world of the dachshund (being already familiar with two standard dachshunds and two dwarf dachshunds, one of which was the very first at the age of 10).

This idea quickly obtains the unfailing support of our youngest who is Neo (a 5-year-old wire-haired dwarf dachshund in 2022). Thus born TECKEL SHOP 🐶 We sell accessories but not only...We give advice with the blog to always take care of your dachshund all year round.
