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!

@DEA Great to hear from you! This year’s NYC Dachshund Spring Fiesta is scheduled for Saturday, April 25th at 12pm. The location is New York City’s Washington Square Park. Everyone meets right by the iconic arch in the north center part of the park.

Do you and Mumulicious (GREAT name by the way!) live in NYC? Just so you know, we always publish all doxie meetups along with some other major NYC doggy events on our Meetups & Events page. You can copy and paste this link to see all other upcoming doggy events:

@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?

How to Measure Your Dog — The Ultimate Guide

November 16, 2020 1 Comment

When looking to buy your dog a new harness, collar, or winter-ready dog coat, you will always need to know your dog's measurements. While it might be tempting to select a product size based on your best guess, this can lead to unnecessary and time-consuming exchanges or returns down the road.

Dog apparel outfitters like DJANGO use a few key dog measurements in their size charts: chest girth, neck girth, back length, and height (also known as "withers"). Not sure what some or all of these mean?

We (Steph and Mike) know that measuring your dog for harnesses, clothes, pet carriers and shoes is confusing and may make you want to hide your measuring tape. In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we cover how to correctly measure your dog's neck girth, chest girth, back length, height, and paws.
