    How does my Wiener get picked to Race?
    EVERYBODY races!!


    What If I Don´t Want My Wiener To Race?
    Just enter as a Non-racing Wiener and then come and have fun at the WienerFest. Full fee is required for you to recieve all of the goodies. Maybe you can pick up a prize in the Costume Contest!

    Can I bring a 2nd Wiener as a non-racing guest?
    Wiener friends & families can come watch the Top Dog for a reduced $10 fee. Just register as a Guest. Dachschunds only, NO mixes or other breeds. NOTE: one wiener must pay the full fee. Please no cheating.

    Does my Wiener have to be "registered"
    Altho we do limited entry to PURE dachshunds we don't care if they are registered and we use the honor system. PLEASE do not try to bring your obvious mix -- you just make it difficult and embarassing for everyone.

    Costume Contest and Other Fun
    Every year our Wieners get more creative with the Costume Contest and the Team Contest. Use your imagination and compete for prizes and fun.
