The Low-Down

If your dog is a pure-bred Dachshund, this is the event for them! Each year, we gather the low-riders of Johnson County and find out who's the quickest of them all! 

We race in 3 classes:

  • Cocktail Weenies (3 yrs. old and under),

  • Ball Park Franks (4-7 yrs.),

  • and Hot Dogs (8 yrs. &up).

Then for one final race, we race the winners of the three classes to crown the fastest Dachshund in Johnson County!

We are all there have a good time! Safety is our number one priority. Therefore:

  • All dogs must be on a leash before/after the race.

  • No fighting or biting - any incidents will lead to disqualification, and you'll be asked to leave the event.

  • Only 2 owners in the race area (one at start and one at finish).

  • Owners and spectators must practice sportsmanlike conduct.

Please bring your pet's current shot record to the event. Racers must be a pure-bred Dachshund.
