Welcome to Belcara Kennels

Quality Standard Long-Haired Dachshunds

About Us

I have been actively involved in the dog world for over 30 years, primarily concentrating on breeding and exhibiting Standard Long-Haired Dachshunds. In recent years, I became the owner and exhibitor of an Afghan Hound and currently show ‘Rim’ along side my Long-Haired Dachshund team.

I currently own and run my own dog-grooming salon, and I am an active member of Dogs Victoria, and the Dachshund Club of Victoria, Inc. Belcara Long-Haired Dachshunds are consistent winners in the show-ring. We are very selective with our breeding program, using only top quality bloodlines. We strive for happy temperaments and quality of confirmation.

Owners of our puppies say they have never had such lovely dogs! – For a quality pet or show dog, call Belcara!

Our Dogs


All litters at Belcara are thoroughly planned to achieve sound physical confirmation, combined with wonderful temperaments.

Puppies are available from time-to-time, however, we average only one litter per year and raise our puppies in the home.

If you are interested in obtaining a family pet or a show dog, please Contact Us.

"Highly Recommend Belcara For Your Next Pup"

♦ ♦ ♦

Beautiful, outgoing, friendly, playful, intelligent and inquisitive are all adjectives I would use to best describe my pup. He’s really friendly with all people and dogs.

From the day he was born Carolyn kept us up to date on the development of our baby boy through videos and photos. It was wonderful to be part of. He quickly fitted into his new home and became part of the family.

I highly recommend Belcara for your next pup.

"A Genuine Breeder Who Has Beautiful Dogs"

♦ ♦ ♦

We really wanted to find an ethical breeder, who loved and cared for their dogs. It was important to us to have a dog with a good temperament and a pure bred line. We did our research, and came across Carolyn. Her authentic approach and long list of awards impressed us from the get go.

We met Carolyn in person before we decided to go with her and we are glad we did. Carolyn has a deep understanding of the dogs that she breeds and is extremely knowledgeable. We paid a deposit and waited for our pup to be born. Carolyn kept us informed throughout the process and sent us regular updates from how the Mum was doing, to how the pups were progessing with lots of photos. We picked up our pup at 10 weeks. Carolyn provided us with an amazing starter pack filled with lots of chew toys, food, detailed notes and paperwork required. We have kept in touch and still share photos almost 6 months on.

If you are looking for a genuine breeder who has beautiful and well-temperamented dogs – chat with Carolyn. We are so glad we choose Carolyn as our breeder and hope to get pup number two from her in 2021! Highly recommended!

"Very Good Family Dogs With Extremely Good Temperaments"

 ♦ ♦ ♦

I purchased a Longhaired Standard puppy from Belcara Kennels when puppies were born in April 2020. I had daily updates and photos as the puppies grew. Once the puppies were 4 weeks old, I got to choose my little man (‘Rusty’).

Carolyn was very helpful in regards to information regarding the breed. When I picked up Rusty at 8 weeks old, I received a beautiful puppy pack and information booklet, Genetic Analysis Report and information for caring for ‘Rusty’. When I got him home dry food, mince, and plenty of toys photos of both parents and grandparents. ‘Rusty’ also had a bath and was beautiful and clean.

He is now 5 moths old and very healthy boy. At anytime I am in need of advise in caring for ‘Rusty’, Carolyn is more than happy to help. I would have no hesitation in recommending Belcara Kennels puppies – They are very good family dogs with extremely good temperaments, as I have my grandchildren come to visit and ‘Rusty’ loves to play with them! I  would love to purchase another in the future.

"Carolyn Was Terrific To Deal With"

 ♦ ♦ ♦

I picked up my dachshund puppy ‘Louie’ from Carolyn almost 3 years ago now, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Carolyn was terrific to deal with, being very communicative and provided plenty of advice about how to prepare, and care for him. Not only is ‘Louie’ very handsome, he has a wonderful personality, being a very happy boy with lots of human and dog friends in our neighbourhood. – This is also something people comment on frequently.

We still enjoy seeing Carolyn a couple of times a year when we can, so ‘Louie’ can get a groom and say “hello”.

I would never hesitate in recommending Carolyn as a breeder because I couldn’t be happier with my little man, and the excellent service and advice she has provided both in purchasing him, and through his life so far.

"My Little Man’s Temperament Is To Die For"

♦ ♦ ♦

I’m so grateful that I was put in touch with Carolyn with my first pup. She made the experience so enjoyable and very informative. I learned so much more about Dachshunds.

Carolyn regularly provided me with updates of the puppies and their progress a long with photos, which was warmly welcomed. She also provided me with an amazing puppy pack full of information and essentials.

I wasn’t expecting such an amazing experience with my first dog, but that is exactly what I got with Carolyn.

My little man’s temperament is to die for and his personality is outstanding and that’s a true testament to how he was raised before I took him home. Thanks Carolyn!

"All Of Carolyn's Dogs Are Beautifully Natured"

♦ ♦ ♦

Getting our darling boy ‘Artemis’ from Carolyn was an amazing experience. Carolyn is very knowledgeable and friendly, answering all our questions and providing above and beyond.

We knew straight away that we were in the right place, all of Carolyn’s dogs are beautifully natured. We never worried about our dogs health apart from the usual as Carolyn’s dogs are stunning and pictures of health.

Our dog ‘Artemis’ is one of the friendliest dachshunds I know and he always gets complements on how handsome he is, we couldn’t imagine our lives without him and we’re very grateful to Carolyn.

"My Little Man’s Temperament Is To Die For"

♦ ♦ ♦

I first got in contact with Carolyn in September 2020. She was helpful from the very start, I went onto her waiting list and was kept informed throughout the whole process from confirmed pregnancy to birth as well as ongoing pictures and updates on the puppies.

Carolyn organised all the details for our puppy to fly over to his new home to us in Tasmania, happily answered any questions I had, and we finally welcomed our beautiful baby boy ‘Ralph’. We waited almost a year from that first enquiry and it was 100% worth it.

From the moment he arrived we knew he was the perfect fit for our family. Carolyn has raised a beautiful healthy puppy with such a great temperament. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new addition to the family. You can tell she really cares about what she does and puts so much love and attention into her litters.

Thank you so much Belcara! We are so over the moon.

"Carolyn Raises Beautiful Dogs and Puppies"

♦ ♦ ♦

We picked up our gorgeous puppy ‘Lando’ from Belcara Kennels in August 2022 and he has been such a delightful addition to our family. He has a lovely temperament (even complimented on by our vet!) and is wonderful with our two children.

All our visitors comment on what a gentle, friendly and well adjusted puppy he is. From our first enquiry to Carolyn in late 2021 she kept us informed with the litters she had planned and provided plenty of photos and updates. Carolyn raises beautiful dogs and puppies and the temperament and personality of ours is a credit to her breeding and how her dogs and puppies are raised.

Since picking up our puppy Carolyn has been happy to answer any questions we have had about feeding, sleeping, training and caring for ‘Lando’ and we regularly share photos and updates. We will definitely be going back to Carolyn when we are ready to add puppy #2 to our family!

"I Couldn’t Recommend a Better Breeder!"

When I met the puppies at Belcara Kennels, it was so easy to see how wonderfully bred they all were.

An amazing amount of effort and love is put into the care and treatment of these puppies and I couldn’t recommend a better breeder!

Carolyn is amazing at helping with tips, tricks and any questions you may have.

"I Couldn’t Be Happier!"

I recently got a puppy from Belcara Kennels and couldn’t be happier! She is in perfect condition, incredible temperament and just an incredible little girl!

Training her has been an absolute breeze with her. Carolyn has been nothing short of incredible. Constantly sending updates on the puppies along with answering any questions I may have.

I would recommend a puppy from Belcara Kennels to anyone looking for an incredible standard dachshund dog.
