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?

I just discovered this site and can’t wait to spend more time checking out all your blogs

The Best Winter Coats For Dachshunds and Other Hard-To-Fit Adventure Dogs

After living in NYC for many years, Mike and I (Steph) moved to Oregon in mid 2016 with our dog Django. October rolled around, and Mike and I began to understand why Portlanders call rain the "Portland mist". It seemed to drizzle and rain continuously. Unfortunately, this meant that by the end of every hike, Django would be cold and soaked with a mud-caked underbelly. 

Our rainy adventures in the Pacific Northwest inspired us to design two performance dog coats built to withstand cold, rain, mud, and snow: DJANGO's Reversible Puffer Dog Coat and City Slicker All Season Dog Jacket.

Mike and I (Steph) did not properly prepare our dachshund Django for his little brother's arrival. We now realize we should have done a lot more to help Django's transition from only child to big brother.

Here are several steps you can take to prepare your dog for your new arrival and ensure things go as smoothly as possible when you get home from the hospital. We also share helpful guidelines on how to safely introduce your dog to your newborn.

DJANGO: The Best Pet-Friendly Hotels in New York City
The Best Pet-Friendly Hotels in New York City

September 05, 2019

New York City can be an intimidating place, especially if you're visiting for the first time with your dog. Not sure where to stay next time you visit? There are thousands of hotels in Manhattan alone, and not all are pet-friendly, in a good location, or even well rated!

To make your life easier, Mike and I (Steph) put together a list of the best dog-friendly hotels throughout Manhattan. Our recommended pet-friendly hotels range from trendy to central to luxurious. And although nothing in NYC is cheap, there are a few hotels below that qualify as 'budget'. If you are focused on a particular Manhattan neighborhood, scroll down for our Google Map guide which highlights the location of each dog-friendly hotel.
