2017 Werriwa Wiener Dash Bungendore - Jan 29

Have you ever been to a Dachshund race? We will admit we haven't but apparently we don’t know what we’re missing! Though they’re not fierce competitors, they are certainly fun to watch. 

To look at a Dachshund, you wouldn’t think it would make a very good racer. They are compact and very low to the ground, with short legs but just like some people who don’t know that they are smaller, these dogs give it their all! Well, some of them do. Others stand around sniffing each other or run off into a nearby field!

In 2016, the Bungendore Show hosted the inaugural Werriwa Wiener Dash, thought to be the first Dachshund Race held in the Capital Region. It was a roaring success with over 120 Dachies and their furparents in attendance. People came from all around Australia to see these little power packs run.

By popular demand this event was expanded for 2017 with 16 heats throughout the day: Semi-Finals in the morning and afternoon and the Grand Final as the last race of the day. 
Entry is open to all Dachshunds whether long, short, wire- haired or miniature, standard or anywhere in between! 
The Para-Wiener Dash is for those special Dachshunds who are elderly or living with a disability which would preclude them from otherwise running.

The popular Dapper Dachshund costume event will also return this year for those sausages who like to dress up.

The 2016 winner was a sausage dog named Snags, who came dressed as a clown, complete with a wig and a fake nose! And there were a multitude of other characters on show, from lifesavers to ballerinas and everything in between.

For those who don’t like racing or dressing up, you can join in the attempt to set the Official World Record for the most number of Dachshunds in one place. 

Even if you don’t have a Dachshund, come along to watch the races and learn more about the breed. 

Entry to all races and the Dapper Dachshund is $2 per event with all funds raised going to Dachshund Rescue Australia. Entry details are on the Tickets page here.

When: Sunday 29th January 2017, from 9:30am to 4:30pm.

Where: Bungendore Showground, 3km west of Bungendore on Mathews lane, off Bungendore Road (ACT).

The Werriwa Wiener Dash would like to thank My Dachshund Online and Love ‘Em Pet Treats for kindly donating prizes for their event.
