Want your dachshund to be a Wiener Winner? Enter your dog in the Lake County Chamber’s Oktoberfest, “Dachshund Derby” as part of Oktoberfest-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.

The rules are simple: Vaccinated dogs only. Dogs must be leashed at all times except when racing. $10 entry fee. Download the application here. 

This year's Dachshund Derby is sponsored by the fine folks at Rainbow Ag. 


There are two prize categories: mini and standard. Prizes will be: 

  • $75 first place in each category,
  • Second place is a huge Rainbow Ag gift bag (these are great!)
