James J. Hill Days Dachshund Races Registration
Dachshunds from across the Twin Cities will gather Saturday, September 10th to compete in the 32nd Annual Dachshund Races. Sprinting, hurdling and jumping their way to success, these power-pooches show off their speed, skill and style in an adorable presentation no pet-lover would want to miss!
Online registration is now CLOSED. You can register onsite Saturday prior to 11:00 AM at Depot Dog Park.
- Races are assigned at random and the number of dogs in each heat will be based on number of entries.
- The first place dachshund in each heat will advance to the finals.
- Each dachshund will need two handlers to race - one at the starting line as the “releaser” and one at the finish line as the “catcher.”
- You may bring your dog’s favorite toy as an incentive at the finish line. Items not allowed: “loud” noise toys or objects, laser pointers, “human food” (small treats okay).
- Winners of heats and advancement is the decision of the finish line judge.
