After losing my fur baby after 17 years, I started my search for a new addition to the family.
I located Cindy through a website. Imagine my excitement when Cindy contacted me about having an available puppy a few weeks later.
From the very beginning Cindy was very responsive and had sent frequent updates and pictures that made the journey to Charlie a sweet rewarding one.
On the day of pick up, I had the delight of meeting all of Cindy’s dogs everyone of them just as sweet as could be. That was so comforting to see the environment that she raises and keeps her dogs.
Charlie is such a delightful sweet angel that made him easily welcomed into the family.

We got our dear little Grady from Cindy's Precious Dachshunds in May 2021. We had a mini pomeranian we dearly loved, who had died of a heart condition. We looked at many breeds.
It was after we met a couple in the park near our house with a beautiful 4 month old that our hearts were stolen. We asked for the breeder's name and found out she had one puppy left in a litter from the same mother and the last puppy left resembled the one we saw that day.
We waited with anticipation for the pictures posted by Cindy Yoder every week. Pickup day arrived and we started a new journey as puppy parents to a very happy, loving bit of heaven on earth we named Grady. It had to be Irish because he was born on St. Patrick's Day!
He is the light of our day and loves to cuddle and play. Thanks to Cindy for her wonderful care of every litter as though she is keeping each puppy as her own.
~ Teresa and Keith Welby
We had such a pleasant experience working with Cindy. From the beginning, Cindy was helpful and informative. She sent numerous updates about our furbaby, Teddy, and we got to see him grow up in the first 8 weeks of his life. Cindy sent this amazing photo of Teddy in a little red car and the squeals from everyone we showed were amazing!
Cindy loves all of her puppies and adult dachshunds and they are her family, and it was wonderful to experience her love through our Teddy!
Teddy has been such a wonderful addition to our family. Our parents have loved having a new grandbaby and our family is always more excited to see Teddy than they are to see us! And during all the chaos that is happening around us, Ted has been a wonderful distraction and brought us so much joy. He has a wonderful spirit, loves giving kisses, running after his toys in our home and taking long naps with us on the couch. We can't wait to watch him grow up.

"Our home felt so lonely after Bailey, our 17 year old long-haired dachshund, passed away in December 2020. After searching the internet for a breeder, we found Cindy. Her love for her dachshunds is apparent on her website and when you meet her.
After Mickey's birth, she kept us supplied with wonderful pictures and videos so that we were part of his life from the very beginning. She's devoted to her dachshunds and to all the puppies born in her home.
Mickey is the sweetest, most handsome and loving little guy. He keeps us smiling and has filled the void in our life. We're thoroughly enjoying watching him grow. Each day through his eyes is an adventure, from meeting new people to his first experience with snow. His favorite place is curled up on our laps or right next to us.
He's got our hearts wrapped around his little paw, and we're so grateful to Cindy for her help in making our home full of puppy love again.
~ Carolyn and Terry Blair
We got our precious baby Deeks from Cindy's Precious Dachshunds on May 12, 2020 & we are absolutely in love with him.
Deeks is an amazing, awesome, handome little boy. He has the best personality ever. He has been a blessing, especially for my husband who lost his Nina after 12 years.
Cindy kept us up to date the entire time before we picked him up. When we got there she was very thorough about all the information, questions, and everything. The quality of her dogs is excellent & the care she gives them before, during & after we got him was amazing.
Cindy is a phenomenal breeder. She loves & cares for all her dogs, including the ones that go to the furever home. Cindy is very knowledgeable about the breed.
We would absolutely recommend anyone interested in getting a dachshund go through Cindy's Precious Dachshunds, always!
~ Jennifer and Randy Cillo
Cindy has been absolutely fabulous to work with! This was our first puppy by ourselves and Cindy provided us with all the information we needed to be prepared and successful.
Since our little guy was born, we were provided with pictures and updates frequently which were so appreciated. It allowed us to feel involved and continuously informed until the day we picked Chester up. Communication was extremely easy, and Cindy was available for us by text whenever we had questions.
When we picked up Chester, we spent time going over care, nutrition, safety, vet visits, and so much more which helped ensure a smooth transition.
Chester is perfect and a beautiful puppy; we would recommend Cindy’s Precious Dachshunds to anyone interested in a dachshund puppy!
~ Eileen Mitchell
~ We contacted Cindy after researching breeders. We are so lucky she only lives 15 minutes away from us.
We purchased our Chocolate and Cream, “Ariya” first and were so happy we immediately got back on Cindys waiting list.
We were so lucky to get our second puppy “Briella” Chocolate and Cream Dapple a year later.
In one word Cindy is “Attentive” in every way. Answering questions, sending updates, taking care of the puppies. We could not be happier.
Thank you Cindy!!
~ Erik and Beth Rickard
We could not have picked a better breeder!
From the start Cindy was extremely well communicative. She answered all of our questions and sent countless pictures and videos!
She even answered many questions after we took our pup home.
We are so in love with our puppy,Henry and will most certainly be using Cindy again.
~ Abby and Colin Reese
We were told by a co-worker about Cindy. We immediately contacted her to get on her waiting list. We received out first doxie (black and cream) named Luna. She has been the joy of our families lives.
A year later we ask to be put back on her waiting list and received our (chocolate and cream) Simms.
They have awesome temperaments. We live local to Cindy, so we use the same Veterinarian. When we go in for a visit she always says she can always tell if the doxie came from Cindy’s litters.
Thank you Cindy for our precious fur babies!
~Bobbie Trate and Chase Satteson
Leyna has been such a fun, sweet, and adorable addition to our family. After losing our 16 year old dachshund over the summer, we didn’t know if we’d be ready for another so soon, but we knew we wanted a cream and decided to start researching breeders and get on a waitlist. I found Cindy’s website and knew right away we’d be getting our next dachshund from her.
We were so surprised after reaching out that she had a cream female available to go to a new home in 8 weeks and decided it was meant to be. Cindy was great throughout the whole process, sending us photos and videos and answering any questions we had.
When the time came to finally meet Leyna, Cindy welcomed us into her immaculate home and we got to meet all the adult dogs and the few puppies she had left, all of them were so well loved and cared for.
Leyna has been such a joy to watch grow, she is always entertaining and hilarious, and the best snuggler when she finally winds down. She keeps our older dog, who was depressed from the death of our older dachshund, on her toes and they play together every day.
I highly recommend Cindy to anyone looking to purchase a miniature long-haired dachshund, and hope that she is still in business when we are ready for our next (which may not be too far from now!)
~ Elisabeth McCollum
Easy Pickin’s is the light of our lives! She is the ideal family dog, a happy companion, and is always down to snuggle or play. She is well mannered, a quick learner, and is happiest when she is next to us.
We couldn’t be more thrilled with Easy and our experience with Cindy. We knew Easy’s early days were critical, so we put our faith and trust in Cindy. She kept us updated the whole time and answered all of our questions (which were a lot).
We can’t wait to adopt number 2!
~ Angela Motte and Pamela Gossman
UPDATE FEB 2022:
We wanted a sister for Madigan. Cindy was fantastic in getting us our new fur baby Quinn. They are Besties. Thank you Cindy.
As an experienced dachshund owner, I spent hours upon hours researching breeders. It was very important for me to find someone who prioritized confirmation and temperament. Cindy’s expertise and dedication surpassed my expectations. Once we spoke, I knew she was “the one” and I feel so fortunate we were able to get a puppy from her.
Not only is Madigan a wonderful puppy, but Cindy is a wonderful person and resource. I felt so comfortable knowing Madi was so well looked after in her first 8 weeks and the frequent updates helped us feel connected to our puppy throughout the whole process. Cindy was also very gracious in helping us navigate the untimely loss of our senior dachshund as we were going through the puppy process with her. She had continued to be a great resource for us and we feel like we are part of the extended CPD’s family.
Madigan has been a dream. She is strikingly beautiful, but more importantly, she is the sweetest girl.
I am very grateful to Cindy for adding to our family and look forward to getting another puppy from her in the future!
~ Lisa Brothwood and Meaghan Francella
We can’t say enough about our experience working with Cindy Yoder of Cindy’s Precious Dachshunds when we got Chase, our one-year-old long-haired miniature. Chase is our second dachshund and has been such a welcome addition to our family during this pandemic and especially after losing two pets in 2019. My father-in-law met Cindy locally in PA and passed her information along to us. We immediately contacted her and were able to get on a waiting list. At fifth on the list, and knowing the upcoming litter was four puppies, we figured we would be waiting until Spring/Summer of 2020 before we would be taking home a puppy. We were pleasantly surprised to get a call from Cindy that one of the families decided to wait and that if we wanted him, the fourth puppy would be ours.
From the moment we said yes, we were provided with updates leading up to and on their birth date, and then especially once the puppies were born. The detail and, especially, all of the adorable pictures that we started to receive from various photoshoots – newborn, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter – was amazing and we felt like we had known Chase before he even came to live with us. After Chase came to live with us in April, we fell even more in love with him and, hopefully, him with us as well. He truly has become a part of our family and, while there’s not much I can positively say about a pandemic, it did allow us and our two children to really bond with him instead of having to leave him every day while at work and school. He may be a little spoiled – or a lot spoiled – but he is definitely loved!
I would definitely recommend Cindy’s Precious Dachshunds to anyone interested in miniature dachshunds. She is not only extremely knowledgeable about the breed, but it’s obvious how much she cares for and loves all of her dogs, even after they leave for their forever homes.
~ Bill Hassenplug
Parker is our third daschund puppy over the past 20 years and our first from Cindy Hoffman Yoder; it will not be our last.
When we lost our beloved Cooper at the age of 12 to a brain tumor, we immediately began looking for a breeder thru AKC. After many false starts (I’m being kind) of AKC breeders and those on www.Breeder.com, we found Cindy. We started with 24 breeders and began the weeding process. As soon as we received her email, we knew it was a blessing and our search was over.
She was the most professional and detailed contact we had made and helped put us back at ease that there are breeders only interested in the breed and what is best for the puppies. After our first phone call where she walked us thru our questions and we answered her questions, it was very clear her professionalism and breed knowledge were exactly what we were looking for.
Parker has a very sweet temperament and is ‘perfect in every way’ … our Vet’s description which I like very much. He is a typical dachshund full of energy and very friendly, excellent with strangers and small children. He loves to be wherever we are and is happy doing whatever we are doing.
Although in the past we have always only had one dog, we’re quite certain that we will get Parker a buddy in the near future and would only consider a puppy from Cindy. In fact, I can say we have added Cindy to our family as well as Parker and would not consider going to anyone else for a dachshund puppy. Even during COVID, Cindy kept us up to date on Parkers development from birth with messages and pictures so when we picked him up in January of this year there were no surprises.
Thank you, Cindy, for all you do.
~ Jim & Leslie Pegg
We absolutely love our new fur baby. We have been looking for a cream dachshund for a long time until I had searched breeders and found Cindy’s precious Dachshunds. I have been on Cindy's list for a while as I was waiting for the right time to get a pup.
I just want to say how wonderful she was through the whole process. From the time Willow became pregnant, she included me every step of the way. Cindy always kept me posted with texts, pictures and updates; her knowledge, love and caring of the breed are excellent.
Cindy puts a lot of time and love into her breeding program and it shows. We are so happy we met her and I just want to say how much we love our Abby. She's the sweetest dog and her temperament is beautiful.
Thank you so much Cindy! Oh, and she gave us the most adorable handmade bag with tons of goodies for our new baby. We can't thank you enough Cindy, you’re the best!
~ Jean Macchione
Cindy was so friendly and helpful throughout the process! She cares very deeply for her dogs and that shows in the excellent care they receive, and her thoughtfulness and attention to detail.
Her puppies are incredibly loved, healthy, and well-socialized, which is just what we were looking for.
We love our little Dolly!
Thank you, Cindy. We are so happy we found you!
~ Emily Burns
This was our first dog purchase through a breeder. We have heard many horror stories and were admittedly apprehensive in the beginning, but between the messages, calls, and eventually meeting Cindy and her husband in person, they were nothing but polite and professional throughout the entire process. They have a beautiful home and extremely well cared for dogs.
We were able to meet the entire litter as well as our pup’s mom in person; right away we could see the undeniable love and effort that was put into everything.
Our sweet boy Dutch Master has been a healthy, happy companion from day one and receives endless compliments from his looks to his behavior! He was easy to train and effortless to socialize.
We love our little man more than anything in this world. He has been more than a pet to us, he is truly our furry son and the best thing that could’ve happened to us. Whether I am bringing him to work to provide pet therapy to disabled individuals or taking him on a road trip to see family, he has taken every adventure in stride. Truly a pinnacle example of the Dachshund breed and I look forward to another pup in the future from Cindy.
~ Ashley Blackwell
Lucy has been such a joyful addition to our lives!
When Cindy reached out last June informing us that she had the puppy of our dreams, we were a bit apprehensive considering we already had a dog at home and a puppy on the way. But with weekly updates and countless photoshoots, Cindy eased our concerns and made the journey to our puppy, Lucy, seamless and full of love! Come August, when we went to pick her up, we already felt like we knew Lucy and were extremely eager to welcome her into our home.
Fast forward to one year later, Lucy’s favorite foods are any and all kinds of fruit, and she tends to always be found on someone’s lap, dreaming of dinner and belly rubs. She loves running out back with her brother and chasing the birds, wanting to just fly away with them! Her best trick is up, which in her world, is synonymous with “I’m adorable! Give me more love!”
Lucy has truly become an indispensable part of our family, and the memories she has brought along with her will certainly last a lifetime!
~ Cathy Duffy
Cindy Hoffman Yoder is extremely knowledgeable and genuinely caring about placing her puppies with people who will love them as much as she does.
She is always available to answer questions and to provide support long after the puppies are in their “forever homes”.
We have two of Cindy’s long-haired dachshunds: a cream female named Lucy and a black and cream male named Bailey. They have the sweetest disposition and most beautiful conformation of any doxies we have ever owned.
~ Carroll Tyminski
Cindy and Moose helped to mend our broken heart after we lost our 15-year-old
Dachshund. Cindy is so kind and like us, loves Dachshunds! Even though we’ve had 4 other dachshunds, Cindy taught us things we didn’t know from improving their feeding to AKC training and breeding standards.
While waiting for Moose to be born, we found another dachshund puppy from someone who represented herself as an AKC breeder. The puppy was ready for adoption, and we went to pick him up. The breeder’s daughter brought the puppy to us in a crate, handed us his vaccination papers and left saying that
Covid restrictions prevented any more conversation. We called to get his “pet” AKC papers and after the breeder screamed at me for asking, she admitted that she had never registered him with AKC. The puppy was fearful from the moment we got him and remains timid to this day.
In stark contrast, Cindy let us know how Moose was doing even before he was born. We had in utero photos and updates from the whelping. After
delivery, the puppies are never left alone- even at night! Cindy and her husband split shifts to make sure they are safe. They are cuddled and hugged, and their world is a perfect place - it’s a home full of love and dachshunds!
Our Moose is fearless, and we believe it’s because of Cindy’s care and attention. Moose has helped our first puppy so much and they are best friends. If we ever decide to get another puppy, we will only consider one of Cindy’s Precious Dachshunds!
~ Margaret Foust
UPDATE FEB 2022:
We loved Nittany so much we ask Cindy for another male cream. She was fantastic in getting us out new fur baby Lion.
We had the most amazing experience dealing with Cindy to get our precious dog, Nittany.
Cindy was such a pleasure to work with. She was in communication constantly with us from letting us know when Willow was pregnant to updating us throughout her pregnancy. We received countless pictures, texts and emails when Nittany was born and for the first couple months of his life.
It was very obvious to us how much Cindy cares about her dogs and how loving she is with each and every puppy.
Nittany is such a special part of our family and we are so lucky to have him! When we are ready, we can’t wait to get another puppy from Cindy.
~ Meagan Paisley
For anyone who is a first-time puppy parent, let me assure you from the start that you are in the absolute best hands with Cindy. My husband and I could not have asked more throughout the experience of getting our lovely dachshund; from the day Callie gave birth last April (2019) we were inundated with photos, videos and updates on how the puppies were getting on - those eight weeks waiting to collect him were the longest of our lives but seeing almost daily updates on how they were all growing (and annoying their mother!) was priceless.
Cindy is such a caring lady. She and her husband, Ken, put so much love into what they do, their dogs all live in the house with them and Cindy is incredibly hands on in how she cares for her dogs - I believe she even sleeps downstairs with the puppies when she needs to - ensuring they are completely comfortable with humans from day one. We can’t thank her and Ken enough for all the hard work they do making sure the puppies healthy and ready to go to their new homes.
Tyrion has us cracking up laughing on a daily basis. For such a little guy he has a massive personality! He is hilarious, stubborn, laid-back (will do almost anything for food) and has a wonderful temperament! We get compliments on a daily basis about how adorable and relaxed he is - he has quite the neighborhood fan club! He has brightened our lives immeasurably, as I’m sure, all the puppies to leave Cindy’s care do. Of course I would recommend using Cindy’s Precious Dachshunds to anyone; her dachshunds are healthy, happy, beautiful and, if they’re anything like ours, you will never be able to imagine your life without them once they’re there.
~ Tom and Laura Leahy
We had a fantastic experience with Cindy’s Precious Dachshunds from the moment we first reached out to Cindy. We could tell from our first phone call how knowledgeable and passionate she was about her dachshunds. Once Charlie was born, we received regular updates, including pictures and videos every few days, so we knew our precious Charlie was in the best hands during his first few weeks of life!
Any questions we had after bringing Charlie home, Cindy was always available to address our new-puppy-parent concerns. She went above and beyond to ensure that we had the right tools to take care of our Charlie.
Charlie is the sweetest, cutest, and happiest puppy. His vibrant personality rubs off on everyone he meets, dogs and humans alike (his best friend is a 120-pound dog up the street). He is playful, loves to cuddle, and has the best temperament, truly a nod to the care provided in his early weeks with Cindy. We can’t put into words how much we love Charlie! We recommend Cindy’s Precious Dachshunds to anyone looking for a long hair mini-dachshund, and our next dachshund will certainly be coming from Cindy.
~ Catharine Wood & Rob Cantando
Ranger Ratatooski has been in the family for a year now and the year was better because he was in it.
He’s fearless yet gentle With three other dogs and 4 grandchildren frequently visiting he is always ready to play and go for walks. His demeanor has always been great around the kids and our other dogs. People always comment on his beautiful colors and how incredibly soft his fur is.
Our experience with his breeder was also 5 star. Cindy takes wonderful care of all the dogs and is very knowledgeable in the proper breeding of her doxies.
~ Danielle Dymeck
My husband and I can’t say enough about our experience working with Cindy. From our very first conversation, we knew there was no other breeder our new pup could come from. Her knowledge, experience and passion are unparalleled.
She is endlessly generous with her time, bringing future pet parents along for the journey with texts and updates on the litter and eventually, your own pup. I can’t express how much I used to look forward to her weekly texts!
While I am biased, I genuinely believe that Cindy’s dogs are the sweetest and best looking around. As with all of her dogs, Cosmo has a great temperament, his tail is (literally) always wagging and he never hesitates to roll over for a belly rub.
We can hardly walk a block without someone commenting how handsome our little Cosmo is - according to them, more handsome than any other dachshund they’ve seen. And talk about sweetness, Cosmo would happily play with other people and animals for hours if we let him.
We have endless amounts of gratitude for the love Cindy brought into our lives. Beyond the most handsome dog in town I feel like we ended up with a lifelong friend in Cindy, too.
~ Laura Frank
After thorough research of dachshund breeders in central PA and surrounding areas, I found the perfect match with Cindy’s Precious Dachshunds.
Cindy’s website provided me with all the information regarding the adoption process for the newest member of my family to be. Her philosophy on dog breeding, training, and raising healthy happy dachshunds is why I choose her.
She’s amazing, friendly, and worked with me to make the transition for my little Millie Bobby Brown easy and fun.
She provided a care package that was made full of love, treats, samples, and lots of other goodies to remind me of the day I picked up my girl. I would 100% recommend Cindy’s Precious Dachshunds to everyone!
~ Alyssa Politi
I have owned (or been owned ) by dachshunds for most of my life. When we lost our beloved Milo last year at the age of 16, we wanted to find another baby to become a part of our family. I found Cindy Hoffman Yoder through my research on the AKC website and was immediately impressed with her genuine nature, professionalism and great knowledge of the breed. And she was extremely caring about our family’s loss of Milo and understood what it meant to look for a new puppy. Well, we were so lucky and blessed to bring Wyatt home this past August! He was the perfect addition to our family and as a new brother to Levi and Cody, our other two doxies. Not only is Wyatt physically beautiful with his black/cream/dapple coat, but his spirit is beautiful as well! He is the happiest little boy and so full of energy and fun that he has earned the nickname “Wyatt the Riot.” He literally is always the center of attention and always much laughter and happiness during a time when it has been very difficult. He loves to run and play with his toys and always wants to be right in the middle with the family. And he loves to fall asleep where it’s warm and cozy! Next to the fireplace, under the Christmas tree or in the kitchen near the oven. His favorite spot is wherever the sun is shining in!
Cindy has continued to be there for us and to answer any questions or provide her expertise across the board.
From a health perspective and breed standard, Wyatt is perfect! His coat and markings are spectacular; his shape and carriage is beautiful.
I highly recommend Cindy as a breeder and bringing one of her beautiful puppies into your family.
~ Lynne Popash
Our family had the most wonderful experience with Cindy’s Precious Dachshunds. Thanks to Cindy, we got Penny, our newest and dearest dachshund family member. Penny is our fourth dachshund and adopting from Cindy has been by far the best experience we've had.
From the moment that we began speaking to Cindy about adopting one of her precious pups, we felt completely supported in all the decisions one must make prior to adopting a puppy. Cindy was very transparent about all aspects of the process. But most importantly, she kept us informed throughout Penny's mom Willow's pregnancy right up through the moment that Willow went into labor. It was wonderful to feel that we were a part of the birthing process — Cindy provided us text updates — knowing that Willow and all her precious babies, including our Penny, were in such capable loving hands.
The two-months after Penny and her sister and brothers were born flew by thanks to Cindy's photo and video updates. A puppy couldn't ask for a happier nurturing start in life. In fact, when the day finally came to pick Penny up we were overjoyed to finally get to meet her but also a little sad that we were taking her from such a loving home. Cindy, of course, made the transition easy for everyone and kept in close contact when we brought Penny home to help us make her transition as seamless as possible.
Penny just turned 11 months and we couldn't love her more. She is happy, healthy and temperamentally a dream. She is full of spunk, intelligence and love and we couldn't imagine life without her. We also couldn't imagine ever working with another breeder.
We were just looking back over pictures Cindy sent us from when Penny was a day old to the day when we traveled to her lovely home to pick Penny up, and we feel so grateful for the wonderful gift Cindy has given us. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience, and recommend that if you want a sweet-tempered, beautiful, dachshund puppy, you couldn't ask for a more wonderful breeder than Cindy.
Thank you Cindy, we are forever grateful for all the love and joy you’ve brought into our lives!
~ Marion Hart
Update! Lizzie and Annie got a sister named Mauve in May 2021 from Cindy.
We found Cindy about 8 months ago after our first older dog Butter passed. We still had our other senior dog Peanut but felt ready to add another pup to the family. Cindy was so wonderful in telling us about her dogs and her breeding program. She truly loves her dogs and they are part of her family. That’s the kind of home we wanted our pup to come from.
We got updates on Lizzie from the moment she was born. Cindy would send photos, stories and videos. Lizzie came home in November and she helped to heal all of us.
We quickly got back on Cindy’s waiting list for another puppy. Annie was born and we got all the same updates that we got with a Lizzie. Our other senior dog passed suddenly in March and our hearts broke again. Cindy helped to comfort us during that time and sent even more Annie updates. Annie came home in April and brought us more love and joy.
Lizzie and Annie are both beautiful, loving and funny in their own unique ways! They love each other and play so nicely together. We have also met all of Cindy’s dogs and they are all amazing.
Cindy has become part of the family and has given us so much love and happiness through her sweet and wonderful dogs. Annie and Lizzie have been a gift. We are so grateful to have found Cindy and highly recommend her as a loving, knowledgeable breeder who puts her heart and soul into raising and breeding the best dogs possible.
~ Jennifer Schonge
I wanted to surprise my husband with a puppy. I contacted several AKC breeders.
Cindy had the exact dog we were looking for and she was not that far away. I live in New Jersey. It was the easiest and best experience ever.
Today, London is getting bigger and having great Fun with our other dog. London absolutely loves my husband.
Thank you Cindy!
~ Minerva Millward
UPDATE: We were so happy, we purchased a second puppy a year later (Jan 2021) named Camo and had the same great experience.
We are so pleased with our experience with Cindy's Precious Dachshunds from start to finish!
She kept us informed all the way through from waiting list, through Ella's gestation, delivery, pup selection and their growth until time to welcome our Cocoa to her furever home!
We were impressed at her knowledge of managing the health and welfare of her dogs, which was important to us in finding the breeder that was right for us. Most importantly, her love for her dogs, her puppies, and her ability to place her puppies in kind, adoring homes and not simply as a transaction, shined through.
She provided photos, videos and snippets into our little lady's personality that helped us get to know her before we even had the chance to meet her and made us feel close to Ella and Cocoa, instilling a confidence in their overall health.
Cocoa is a playful, imaginative, curious puppy with the most beautiful dappling - and she is the perfect compliment to our growing family. We are so fortunate to have her and fall more in love with her everyday!
~ Jenna & Tom Murphy
I’m so happy that I found Cindy and decided to purchase a puppy from her. She guided us through the entire process and kept me informed every step of the way. She sent us pictures and videos often so we could see our baby as she grew.
Cindy’s knowledge and experience, combined with a genuine love for what she does, was all that we could have hoped for. We are grateful for her and would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a mini dachshund to go through Cindy.
Our baby, Ava, is the sweetest puppy we've ever met. She’s so well tempered, calm, and lovable. She’s so smart and was so easy to train as well. We are so in love!
~ Audrey Valley
I want to thank Cindy Yoder and her Precious Dachshunds. I got my little female mini long-haired Dachshund, Kahlua, two years ago this April and she is absolutely beautiful. One of the reasons I chose Cindy was that she is very professional, loving towards her Doxies, and I liked the fact that she breeds her pups for temperament.
Kahlua was easy to train and is a calm-natured Doxie. I get compliments on how laid back she is all the time, though she certainly has a lot of energy as well!
Cindy raises all of her puppies in her home and they are socialized, healthy, and happy little pups. Once you get a puppy from Cindy's Precious Dachshunds you become part of her Dachshund family. I loved that she would send me pictures every week or two with updates on Kahlua in adorable poses and backgrounds. She even sends each of her pups' forever families home with a big goodie bag specifically tailored to each individual pup.
I love Kahlua and highly recommend Cindy's Precious Dachshunds to anyone looking for a happy, healthy, loving mini long-haired Dachshund!
~ Jennifer Fusselle
When we began our journey to look for another dachshund fur baby we were not sure where we would find an honest and trusting breeder who breeds dachshunds out of love for the breed and not for monetary reasons alone.
I stumbled upon a past buyer of Cindy’s on Facebook and asked where she got her beautiful long haired dachshund puppy and she sent me Cindy’s name and website address. Well needless to say I was impressed with her website and contacted Cindy right before we went on vacation to let her know we were ready to open our hearts up again after losing our 17 ½ year old Sparkles.
Cindy contacted me right after Willow whelped 5 babies telling me she had 2 available. I was so excited and shocked that it was all happening so quickly and we agreed to take our darling Ember.
Cindy was so awesome with sending pictures and videos as Ember and her siblings grew. The love she has for her own 6 dachshunds as well as the love she had for the litter shone without a doubt through her many text messages and phone calls with me. Cindy is a breeder who goes over and above to make sure her puppies are loved and are ready to transition into their new home. She sends you home with a goodie bag with your pups name embroidered on it.
We asked if we could visit and Cindy opened up her home to us when Ember was 5 weeks old. The knowledge and love Cindy has for the breed shone brightly during our visit and was so inspiring and beautiful.
Our sweet Ember is beautiful and such a joy with a fun personality and the sweetest temperament. Ember is so intelligent and loving and brings a smile to our faces every day. We couldn’t be happier with our experience with Cindy and I feel we made a lifelong friend as well.
We would recommend Cindy to anyone who is looking for a dachshund with a great lineage and we wouldn’t hesitate to do business with her again.
~ Anne and Brent Knarr
If you're looking for a healthy, quality, well-bred dog with a sound mind and good temperament from a breeder who is knowledgeable and responsible, CPD's is where you will find it. Cindy has worked hard to create quality bloodlines and raise dogs that meet the breed standard. She is an incredibly educated breeder and dog trainer, and is very well respected.
Cindy's dogs all live in her home with her family, and are loved/treated as such. Cindy welcomed my husband and I into her home, showed us where her dogs lived, what they ate, and walked us through their routine. Her program is wonderful and she is an open book, with a wealth of information and advice.
Her dogs are not only gorgeous, but they are brilliant, so gentle and laid-back. We got our little Addie from Cindy in July (2019) and she is such a joy. Everywhere we go, people complement me on Addie's calm demeanor, her gorgeous markings, and her sweet personality. It was such a pleasure working with Cindy and I am honored to have one of her pups. I would definitely recommend Cindy and would go to her for another puppy.

From the very first moment Ella became pregnant, Cindy included us in the puppy experience every step of the way. We were provided with regular health updates including sonogram photos. Ella began whelping on May 7, 2019 from that point on we received picture after picture of Houdini’s new journey.
We could not be more pleased with our experience. Cindy is the most knowledgeable, caring breeder we have had the pleasure of working with. She provides ongoing support and knowledge.
Houdini is the most loving, silly, intelligent, friendly, and well tempered dog we have ever had the pleasure of owning. To say we love this guy to the moon and back would be an understatement. Our family recommends Cindy’s Precious Dachshunds every chance we get!

We got our girl, Dilly from Cindy Yoder in June 2018. We spent a lot of time searching for a breeder we were comfortable with before finding and meeting Cindy. I first spoke with Cindy on the phone and was immediately impressed with her knowledge and compassion she has for her dachshunds.
When we went to pick up Dilly, we were amazed how beautiful and well behaved all Cindy’s dogs were. The puppies and adult dogs all sleep, play, and grow right in Cindy’s home!
Dilly has been a pure joy for us. Such a sweet tempered little girl. Everyone who meets her wants to take her home!
Watching Dilly grow and develop this past year, it is truly evident to us that Cindy is compassionate about this breed; the temperament and beauty of her dogs shows it.

Wonderful, fantastic and love are just some of the words to sum up our experience with Cindy. The journey to getting our new fur baby was just great. All the pictures, text messages and calls, to calm this nervous Mama's nerves were so appreciated!
Cindy's knowledge of the breed and breeding, combined with the love of her puppies made this experience more than I could have ever asked for.
Our Bridget, like her Mom has the best temperament and is just beautiful! There will definitely be another puppy in our future and it will definitely be one of Cindy's! Not only did we get a wonderful puppy but also a very good friend!

We are so happy with Marvin! Cindy was amazing through the entire process. She was great with sending us pictures and updates throughout Marvin's first weeks. We got to come meet Marvin and Cindy's other dogs prior to picking him up.
Cindy was always willing to answer any questions we had and she is very knowledgeable regarding everything dachshunds.
Marvin has such a wonderful and loving personality which can be attributed to the blood lines Cindy uses. We would recommend anyone towards her business and she genuinely cares about the dogs. We are eager to get another one.

It’s been two years since we picked our adorable little Coco up from Cindy and we cannot imagine a life without our perfect furbaby! Coco has a stunning personality – everything you expect from a Dachshund - a little stubborn and loyal - but above everything she is the most loving and caring cuddle bug that will never fail to ensure you are well.
Cindy has been great from the very beginning, patiently answering all our questions and being available with advise when needed. We very much appreciate the loving environment she raises her dogs and puppies in, which was well reflected in how easily Coco started to trust us. We also had the great opportunity to see Coco interact with her siblings and mom which we will never forget.
Coco is a very precious Dachshund, loved by everybody who meets her. She is a healthy, happy and intelligent puppy and we are incredibly thankful to Cindy for completing our family. We are hoping to expand our family with more of Cindy’s Precious Dachshunds when the timing is right.

I met Cindy a few years ago when she wanted to breed her female Dachshund Willow. We not only helped her as she started her breeding program, but she has helped us as well.
She has learned a lot about genetics and colors, and has willIngly shared that with me. I have been to her home and seen her dogs. I am greatly impressed with their training and her interaction with them.
Cindy has beautiful Dachshunds.
We have developed a great friendship through our dogs. So glad I met her. I would recommend her to anyone as a breeder.
