San Diego Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals

 Back from the San Diego Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals.

We had a lot of fun. My brother got to race with me and he came in second out of 4 doxies in our heat. He is a 14 year old dog who has raced before, but this was the first time he crossed the finish line.

It was nice seeing all my friends. Thanks for coming by and saying hi.  It was fun to see many of them make it to the top 16. I ended up with  time of 2.88 seconds. You will all have to come out to the Del Mar Race Track on  Sept. 6 and cheer us all on. 

If any one got pictures or videos of the races or dogs let me know where you post them I would love to see them.

Here is the info for the  Wiener Dog Nationals San Diego Finals

The 14th annualWienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals!

Dogs ready to run

You won’t find grey hounds or whippets on this racecourse -- just wiener dogs -- or Daschunds, as they’re officially known. Local Dachshunds, popularly known as “wiener dogs,” will have their day this weekend.

The 14th annual Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals kicks off in San Diego on Saturday, August 28th at Qualcomm Stadium Rugby Fields (Near Section J-5 in the Stadium Parking Lot).

Wienerschnitzel doesn’t have an exact specification on how low-to-the-ground the dog’s carriage has to be, but suffice it to say the typical Dachshund is pretty low.

The miniature Dachshund normally weighs less than 11 pounds and it’s foot-long body is usually sustained by inches-high legs.

Spectators thus can be forgiven this Saturday if, while watching the proceedings, they think of a bunch of running hot dogs — which is exactly what Wienerschnitzel had in mind when conceiving the event. The event and much of the national tour are sponsored by Wienerschnitzel, a fast-food hot dog restaurant.

This event is hysterical to watch. This is a hobby for people who truly love their dogs and any dachshund may participate! These dachshunds will waddle there way to the finish line with comical results, while others will run like the wind, well as least as much as a dachshund can. So if you don’t race come out and watch. You will at least come home with a good story.

Date: Saturday, August 28
Time: 8:00 a.m. Registration, 
9:00 a.m. Races Begin 
Location: Qualcomm Stadium Rugby Field, Section J-5
Online Registration is Now Open!
If you do not want to register online, entry forms will be mailed within the next two weeks.

 The top sixteen dogs from the qualifying round will advance to the San Diego final in September. 
The top dog from San Diego will advance to the championship at the Port of San Diego Big Bay Balloon Parade presented by the San Diego County Credit Union on December 30.

This year's finalists will receive the opportunity to march with the Wienerschnitzel float in the nationally televised parade.

Any dachshund may participate!

Admission to the event is free to humans and non-racing dogs.


There is a $7 pre-registration entry fee per racing dog and the entry fee includes one owner t-shirt (guaranteed for pre-registered dogs only). The pre-registration deadline is August 20.
Online registration will open in July on our website. Late registrations will be accepted from 8/21 to 8/26 for a fee of $10. Day-of registration is $10.

Online registration will close August 26th at noon, but we will accept walk-up registration the day of the event.  Event Day entry is CASH ONLY!

Vendor Opportunities
The Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals accept vendors with animal related causes and products. In order to view the races, all dogs and their owners must walk through vendor village. This year’s event is expected to draw more than 300 dachshunds and their owners from all around Southern California. Races are free for rescue dogs. No human food vendors please.

Sunday, July 11, 2010


The day started out as a normal one. Though it had an air of excitement, for today was the Wiener Nationals at Los Alamitos. We  packed up the car with all the stuff we thought we would need. I had to sit in the way-back because my brother and sister were coming with me to the race, to cheer me on and take pictures. 

Ugh! We had an hour and half drive ahead of us. I hate driving in the car.  So I figured I should try to close my eyes and nap.

When we finally got to the race track, we found our group some seats and got in line to sign-in. At sign-in the officials gave us our racing jersey. I was white number two, which meant we were in the second qualifier slot number 2. Because we were in the qualifiers we ran before any of the televised races started. We had to win our race to get in the official trials.

Before we had to line up for the race, my parents took me out to the grass so I could relieve myself. They  wanted me to have my mind clear. I peed, but I was too anxious to concentrate on what they were asking me to do. I just walked around and sniffed a bit. So we went back inside the park and  got in line for the race. I was so excited that I was shaking and whining. My mom tried to get my attention with little pieces of bacon and my squeaky ball, but I just wanted to get out on the field and race. I knew what I had to do.

The moment was finally here. We walked out on the race track. The trumpet was played to announce the start of our race. We processed down the side of the track as the announcer gave out the names of racers. We were heading towards the racing boxes. My mom handed me to my dad who would place me in the starting box and my mom made her way back across the field to the finish line.

My dad lowered me into my slot and held me there. I looked out the glass port hole intently in anticipation of the door opening. I butted my head against it, In hopes I could get it to open early. I whined with anticipation. Then the door opened! I was one of the first out at least a head in front of the other dogs. I ran quickly through the deep racing dirt, straining every muscle to make it to the finish line first. I was almost there, when something dreadful happened. My stomach made an awful rumble! One that made me lose my focus and I slowed a bit. I heard my mom yell “Don't slow down you are almost there. Go! Go! Go!” I tried to redouble my speed but it was already too late.  I felt mired in the thick dirt of the racing track. I ran towards my mom and went after the ball she threw to help me focus past the finish line. I got the ball then went back to find my dad. But wait! There was that awful rumble in my tummy again. I stopped and did what my mom had tried to get me to do in private before the race. I poopedI pooped, in front of all those racing fans, there projected on the big screen! How embarrassing! I have to say my stomach felt much better but a little too late. For when all was said and done, I had come in third.
