Wiener Dog Racing Dog Sports
First introduced as a parody in a 1993 beer commercial, Wiener Dog Racing frequently attracts large crowds, cognisant of the fact that this is a tongue-in-cheek sport, out of which the Dachshunds get just as much fun as the audience.
Few dogs complete the course anyway. Most treat it as more of a social event and stop for a chat with other dogs along the way.
Typical races are of 25 or 50 yards in length and mainly run to raise funds for good causes.
Now there’s a competitive racing event a near 50 kilo German Shepherd might stand a chance of winning. I wonder if anyone would notice?
