Just when we least expect it, something wonderful happens. This time the wonderful thing that's happened is that the VKC Dachshunds have received an upgrade.

You can read all the details in the Release Notes, but the highlights of this upgrade for the Red and the Black and Tan Dachshunds include the addition of

  • New Pathfinding skills
  • Bandanas
  • Three petting animations
  • New turning commands
  • Other new commands: explore, patrol, and hidefrom

With a simple spoken command, the upgraded dogs are able to switch between the familiar Traditional mode and the superior Pathfinding mode. For those who wish to have a little more privacy, the upgrade makes it possible to hide your dog's name from others.

To take advantage of this upgrade, drop by selected VKC Parks. Go to the VKC Clinic and look for the sign named "Regeneration Station" on the kiosk near the clinic (Turing Isle and Canis Beach) or on the counter of the clinic (Steelhead). It has a picture of the Bloodhound on it.

If you wish to delay upgrading your Dachshund, you may continue to use the other fine services of the VKC Clinic to heal your pet and to retrieve him when he gets lost. VKC Trainers are available to assist you.
