Annual Dachshund Derby in Palo Alto!

  • This location is shown only to members


Us Cheerleaders will be cheering your dog(s) on!

The highly anticipated 10th Annual Dachshund Derby, The Highway Wiener Nationals, is planned for this year on Sunday, August 4th, starting at 11:00am (be there by 10:30am).

DACHSHUNDS ONLY will take to the lawn at Palo Alto High School to showcase their speed and race for the title. Our Nathan and Roo have participated in this race, and it was a lot of fun. Nathan has won a heat, but unfortunately at the next race he got so excited he just jumped in the air and twirled! Roo saw something he liked better and ran sideways! Neither one came close to the finish line, but it was very cute to watch. All participants are very gentle with their pups...

If you'd like to enter YOUR Dachshund, more details will be forthcoming....stay tuned! If you don't want to enter your Dachshund in this fun, stress free Dachshund race, bring your Dachshund(s) to watch the races - it's a real hoot.

This FREE, Dachshund ONLY, 10th annual race will have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes! Bring a little money to purchase an Event T-Shirt.

    I am one of the northern CA coordinators for Southern California Dachshund Relief and we may have a booth with our dogs available for adoption. If anyone is attending this event, and not racing, would you like to help with our booth? It involves talking to potential adopters, controlling dogs, helping to set up, etc.
