A day at the races

It was the Ascot of the canine world but without the bets and with much more pazazzz! or should I say PAWzazzz!

The last official race day of 2010 until next spring but the turn out was phenomenal with almost 50 dogs wagging, frolockling and competing - dachshunds in London's greatest meet to date!

Crowds gathered as the club paraded in fancy dress costumes - many hand made for the occasion and camera were rolling for the SKY 1 DOGumentary airing this autumn!

The dogs raced in two separate heats and winners were awarded with dog spa prizes and home baked bone treats!

At the end of the racing the dachshunds gathered for a spot of sausage eating under the bandstand and rain coats and umbrellas began to appear!

Despite it raining 'cats and dachshunds' the group still battled towards the end until many got too wet to enjoy anymore...

The dachshund derby

Check out some movies from the Dachshunds in London mega Race Day - apart from the rain which drowned out our little fourlegged friends - the club managed to raise money for charity Dog AID by racing dachshund friends....

The Great London dachshund dash Sunday 26th September

The Time has come, dachshund lovers, to unite with our favourite breed and show London what we are all about!

The dachshunds in London official race day will commence at 1.30pm at Regents Park, beside the Honest Sausage Cafe on Sunday 26th September. The event is sponsored by Sniffles Dog Spa and Paws and Claws and we will all be raising money for Dog AID.

Club members are asked to turn up in fancy dress and those of you who have a club t-shirt please wear it as the event will be filmed for a dogumentary for SKY airing in November -so we want shiny coats and well turned out paws for the day! Those who make the extra effort can collect a super dooper doggy goodie bag from me.

The day will be filled with doggy treats and prizes to be won. Here is a quick teaser of whats on...

Races – start 2.30pm

Two heats will take place, one for miniatures and one for tweenies/standards. The first three winners of each race will win a prize and the final six will enter a ‘finale’ race.

Sausage Eating – 3.30pm

Again this will be split into dog size and there will be one prize awarded for the fastest sausage eater in each category!

Talk n’ tips with Stan Rawlinson - 4pm

Louise and her father, renowned dog trainer Stan Rawlinson, will be talking to us about training tips to straighten out those ‘paw’ habits!
