The East Tennessee Dachshund Races was founded in 2018 as a circuit race of the National Dachshund Circuit Races.   The East Tennessee Dachshund Races Winners will be invited to race at the National Dachshund Races in Ohio in September. 

Our event proceeds benefits Tennessee Dachshund Rescue, a nonprofit 501(c)3 group. The coordinators of this event are all volunteers and receive no compensation, only the fun and excitement of watching this breed that we love compete and interact.  We now include non-doxies and handicapped dogs under 30 pounds!!  Please enjoy yourself at all the events and make sure you and your Doxie/dog stay safe!!!

Quote - “From 2004 to 2007 I shot a documentary about the world of Dachshund racing in America.  Of all the events that I encountered on my journey across the nation, - and I encountered quite a few, Toni Gossard’s stands out as an example of an event where the dog’s health and comfort are a top priority.”  ~Shane MacDougall, Director, Wiener Takes All.
