We joined hundreds of sausage dogs at NYC's Dachshund Spring Fiesta (video)

Every spring, New York City's Dachshund Spring Fiesta draws hundreds of sausage dogs from the tri-state area to Greenwich Village. The wiener dogs and their owners congregate around Washington Square Park's marble triumphal arch, an iconic symbol of downtown Manhattan and one of the most recognizable monuments in the NYC metro area.

The event is organized by the Dachshund Friendship Club and promoted by the Washington Square Park Conservancy, @dachshundsofnyc and @djangothegent on Instagram, and other sausage dog celebrities to ensure max turnout.

We had the privilege of attending this year's fiesta with our lil sausage celeb Django. Check out our video montage of the biggest dachshund meetup in the nation, and let us know what you think in the comments!

@DACHSHUNDSTATION Your dachshund/beagle mix is DEFINITELY welcome!!! All dachshunds, dachshund mixes, and dog lovers (with or without their own sausage dog) are welcome! We’ve had friends who don’t own dachshunds come hang out at the Dachshund Spring Fiesta and friends with non-dachshund dog breeds come join the fun :) The Dachshund Spring Fiesta is all-inclusive and so much fun for everyone :) We highly recommend joining this year! This year’s spring event is April 27, 2019 from 12-2pm – location is under the Washington Square Arch in Greenwich Village. Hope to see you there!

Oh, Wow, this event sounds so fun. I wonder if my dachshund/beagle mix would pass enough for a doxie?

OMG!! I had not idea this event existed but may have to make the trek to NYC in 2019 with my two Dachshunds. They truly are “the best dogs under the sun”
I just discovered this site and can’t wait to spend more time checking out all your blogs

How to Potty Train A Puppy

March 03, 2021

When Mike and I (Steph) brought Django home, we instantly fell in love with him. He was adventurous, playful, mischievous, and absolutely adorable. Like most dachshunds, he was also notoriously hard to housebreak. Django had a ton of accidents throughout our Brooklyn apartment up until he was 7-8 months old.

Potty training your puppy can be a daunting task if you have never done it before. That is why we sat down with Steffi Trott, the founder of SpiritDog Training in Cedar Crest, New Mexico, for potty training tips. In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we also share some of our favorite potty training products that we used with Django and link to other current best sellers and customer favorites.

Nom Nom Dog Food Review | Our Experience with the Fresh Dog Food Subscription Service

February 17, 2021

In 2019, Mike and I (Steph) came across Nom Nom fresh dog food. Now, it is a regular part of our dachshund Django's diet. It's impossible to resist feeding Django Nom Nom when he literally does a little dance every time we open a Nom Nom sleeve and pour it into his dinner bowl.

Do we only feed Django Nom Nom? Nope. We like to feed Django a variety of high quality dog foods—Nom Nom being one of them. Django's most common meal is a mix of high-quality dry dog food with nutrition-dense, freshly made dog food (aka Nom Nom).

In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we provide an honest review and comprehensive overview of Nom Nom. We include pricing estimates for various breeds and a 50% off Nom Nom promo code for your first order. All opinions are our own and based on our own personal experience feeding our sausage dog Django.

How To Socialize Your Puppy at Home During Covid

February 10, 2021

Puppies need to be socialized between 3 and 16 weeks old. Socialization is not the same thing as exposure. Simply introducing your pup to new people, animals, objects, and places does not mean he will feel safe around them in the future.

Whether you are social distancing because of COVID-19 or prefer staying at home, you can introduce your dog to people, animals, objects, sounds, smells, and surfaces. We teamed up with Empire of the Dog's founder, Denise Harmon, to come up with more than 100 ways to socialize your puppy at home.
