Want your dachshund to be a Wiener Winner? Enter your dog in the Lake County Chamber’s Oktoberfest, “Dachshund Derby” to be held October 5, 2013,  in downtown Lakeport.

You can download the Dachshund Derby Application right from our website. 

The Daschshund Derby will have a short course for the short-legged dachshunds,  with an emphasis on safety.  All dogs must have some dachshund in them, but need not be purebreds. We recommend that there be two adults per dachshund - one at the start and one at the end of the race.
