About Us

Hawai'i Wiener Derby is an annual dachshund event entering its sixth year. A couple of dachshund owners got together and organized the event because they had attended them on the mainland and found them hilarious and fun. Since then annually we have about 150-200 doxies in attendance. They are not serious races and we do not advocate dog racing for betting or competing. This is a fun event for families and their pets. All are welcome to attend and attendance for spectators is free. Please join us at beautiful Kamaaina K9 Adventures in Waimanalo on Saturday, October 24, 2015 8am -2pm Onsite sign-in will be at the Dachshunds Race Tent. Onsite sign-in starts 1 hour before races (8:00 am). Dachshunds should be signed in at least 30 minutes before their race.
