Welcome to the 2nd Annual Doxie Derby at the Amazing Phoenix Pet Expo being held on April 28th, 2012. This is not a sanctioned race, it is a FUN race, so cheating is strongly encouraged. You may bring your dachshund's favorite squeaky toy, stuffed animal, blanket, treat, food, and human to encourage him or her to run in the right direction and cross the finish line. Come on out and join in the fun and great prizes, too!
Rules of the race;
Nobody gets hurt.
Each racer must be accompanied by two humans, one to release the doxie at the startinggate, and one to encourage him or her at the finish line.
Laser pointers will be prohibited, see rule # 1.
Dachshunds showing aggression toward other dachshunds in the race will politely be asked not to participate and your entry fee will be cheerfully refunded, see rules #1 and #2.
There is a $25. entry fee per participant. We will hold 4 preliminary "heats", with 8 dachshunds competing in each heat.
The winner of each heat will boast a 1st place ribbon and a $50 cash prize. Ribbons will also be awarded to the 2nd and 3rd place finishers of each heat. The final race of the day will determine who is the Fastest Weiner in the West, with the top 2 finishers of each heat competing for the Grand Prize, $200 cash, a Grand Champion trophy, and a surprise gift package of doggy goodies being donated by the Amazing Phoenix Pet Expo....even we don't know what is in it!
The course is 25 yards long, on padded turf.
Of course the Doxie Derby course is indoors, in the air conditioned comfort of the expo, on padded turf for the safety and protection of all of our darling doxies. See rules #1 and #2.
Online registration: You must pre-register and remit your registration fee to secure your participation in th fun. Please indicate your preference of which heat you would like your doxie to run in. If you are entering more than one dog, please complete a form for each, and we strongly encourage you to select a different heat for each dog. Racers are requested to check in 20 minutes prior to your heat to get your doxie fit with a racing silk and have a little time to settle at the starting gate. Time preferences will be allocated based on availability with the earliest registrants securing their first time choices.
