NMDC National Specialty



The NMDC’s National Specialty is held once a year at various locales across the country. The show generally takes place just prior to an AKC specialty or all-breed show. During the 3-5 day event, the NMDC’s annual meeting and awards dinner are held. Host clubs and NMDC frequently sponsor hospitality sessions, seminars, and raffles. This is a great opportunity to learn about Miniature Dachshunds, meet new Dachshund friends, see Miniature Dachshunds from all over the United States and often other countries, and just have a good time!

The NMDC National Specialty is an exposition of Miniature Dachshunds governed by NMDC rules; the dogs are judged according to the NMDC breed standard. Generous cash prizes, rosettes, and NMDC medallions are awarded. Winning dogs are given points toward the making of an NMDC championship title according to the following schedule.
