Thank you to everyone who supported the 2017 Show and helped us achieve a world record.
In 2018 we will be hosting the 3rd annual Werriwa Wiener Dash. More details coming soon……
Have you ever been to a Dachshund race? If not, you really don’t know what you’re missing. They’re not fierce competitors but 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 and visiting, or running off into a field.
In 2016, the Bungendore Show hosted the inaugural Werriwa Wiener Dash, the first (to our knowledge at least) Dachshund Race in the Capital Region, and it was a roaring success with over 120 dachies and their parents in attendance. People came from across Australia to see these little power packs run.
Due to demand we expanded the event in 2017 and ran 16 heats throughout the day, There was also a Para-Wiener Dash for those special dachshunds who were elderly or living with a disability that precluded them from otherwise running.
Even if you don’t have a dachshund, come along to watch the races, learn more about the breed and pat a wiener.
