Entry fee is $10 for a first dog and $5 for each additional dog.

There will be prizes awarded for every event.

For pet owners, there will be information tables, an auction, 50/50 draw and refreshments for sale.

Organizers ask that no puppies under five months attend. As Winskill is not an off-leash park, all dogs must be on a leash at all times. All dogs must also be current and up to date on their vaccinations and no dog sales are permitted within the park.

The Western Dachshund Club represents breeders and exhibitors in B.C. Every year the club holds an annual Wiener Walk & Picnic, annual conformation specialty show and two earthdog competitions. The club represents all three coat types (long-haired, smooth-haired and wire-haired) and both sizes (standard and miniature) of dachshunds.
