All of us at Heilmann Dog Park are very excited about partnering with our friends at Lemos Feed and Pet Supply to bring a classic Fall event to Atascadero Lake Park, including the always zany Wiener Dog Races.
This year’s race includes the popular new division for Wiener Wannabes (dogs of any breed under 25 pounds). First place finisher gets a special prize of a professional sitting fee and photograph with Jeanne Harris (value $200). Her photography is incredible and we encourage you to check it out.
The costume contest has prizes, gift certificates, and bragging rights for winners. See details below.
