Dachshund (or "wiener dog") racing is a controversial, yet popular sporting event, primarily found in North America. Typical races are either 25 or 50 yards in length, and are run on various surfaces. Many race tracks across America host these events as fundraising or publicity events, and routinely draw the venues' largest attendance numbers of the year.

The Dachshund Club of America opposes dachshund races, not only on the grounds that the breed has a genetic predisposition to back injuries, but also because they are afraid that greyhound tracks will use the events to attract potential customers to see a sport that many animal rights advocates condemn.

The de facto national championship of wiener dog racing is the Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals, held in San Diego, California every December as part of the Holiday Bowl, however there are many other venues that claim title to the true "national champion".

"Wiener Takes All" is a documentary film that chronicles two years of the Wiener Nationals circuit, as well as wiener dog races from across the world.
