Dachshund Races:  Any Dachshund can Race!  All dogs must be current on shots and on leash, except when racing.  Each dog racing needs two humans!  One person will be at start line, one at finish line.  The winner of each heat will move to the finale.  Races should be finished around 9 pm.  Preregister your dog on our website or call 325-677-7722 to have us mail you a form for racing.
