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?

Kennel Cough in Dogs: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, and Prevention

June 09, 2021

Kennel cough is a common and highly contagious dog disease. It causes an ongoing, forceful cough in infected dogs and swelling in the lungs, windpipe, and voice box. If your dog has an unrelenting cough that sounds like a honking goose, he may have kennel cough.

While kennel cough sounds horrible, fortunately the majority of dogs recover without treatment. So what exactly is kennel cough in dogs? What dogs are most at risk for kennel cough, and what are its symptoms? Can humans contract kennel cough from their pets? Is there a vaccine for kennel cough?

In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we explain the causes and symptoms of kennel cough in dogs. We also review available treatment options, discuss the Bordetella vaccine, and provide tips for prevention.

How to Train Your Dog to Love Riding in a Pet Travel Carrier

May 12, 2021

In an increasingly pet friendly world, dog carrier bags allow us to take our four-legged family everywhere. Whether you are about to board an international flight, ride on public transportation, go hiking, or spend the afternoon running errands with your four-legged friend, getting your dog used to a pet carrier is essential.

Is your dog new to pet carriers? Nervous, excited, or jumpy in any type of dog bag or pet purse? It is very common for dogs to be scared of new carriers or even try to jump out, especially if they're not used to being carried. How do you teach your dog to love riding in a bag?

In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we provide several steps to help your dog get used to a new pet carrier.
