Hophaus Dachshund Races Melbourne 2017

NOTHING BEATS A SAUSAGE FEST! - Race goer tips. 

Year 3 of the annual Hophaus Dachshund races in Melbourne was bigger than ever! No surprises there after all what's better than a hilarious day of dogs, dress ups and beers! 

Seasoned race goers the Pethaus team attend each year to support our low riding pack members, and catch up with the crew for some bevies afterwards. 

Here are our hot tips for those of you thinking of attending 2018 

  1. Water!  Bring plenty of water in bottles and a portable bowl. It gets very hot at the race site. 
  2. Get there early if you want to see the race. Arrive well before 11am to get a good viewing spot 
  3. Consider your dogs comfort.  If you have an anxious dog the races can be very busy and overwhelming.  As mentioned it can get very hot at the site so be sure their costume / outfit won't overheat them or is easy to remove.  Bringing a large bag or carrier to give you dog a safe space to take a time out is a great idea. 
  4. If you want to be involved as a racing dog book your spot early as they fill up fast (yes you need to be a Dachshund) . Money raised from race fees goes to help the pawsome folk at Dachshund Rescue

Sizing guide

Just like us pets come in all shapes and sizes and no two of the same breed are identical. We've made this handy video to help you measure your buddy for the perfect fit.  Below the video you can select your dogs clothing size from our size charts.   *** WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND MEASURING FIRST***

LETS GET STARTED....

  1. MEASURE YOUR BUDDY FIRST FOR THE BEST FIT. ( Watch our 'How to measure your dog video) 
  2. SCROLL DOWN AND SELECT A SIZE FROM THE CHARTS BELOW

 

REMEMBER WE ARE HERE TO HELP.

If your still unsure we are more than happy to help. Just email us your dogs measurements as shown below (and a photo too if you like) We will help you find the best fit for your buddy.  Use the blue contact tab in the bottom right corner  to email us or select contact from the header menu. 

    Pethaus - how to measure your dog

     * Note Vests are sized differently to hoodies and tees please check the "Hoodie or tee size charts at the bottom of the page

    We do not recommend an average breed size as no two dogs of the same breed are exactly the same. - Please do not guess your measurements ie - my dog is a large breed so will be a size large ... that's not how it works guys ;)  

    CHEST MEASUREMENTS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT FOR YOUR DOGS COMFORT AND BEST FIT.
