Weiner Takes All (2009)

Sponsored by Coast 104.5 and SLO Brew

We loved Shane McDougall’s tongue-in-cheek “dogumentary” so much we just had to bring it back for an encore screening.

Welcome to the surprisingly cutthroat world of competitive wiener dogs, a world that boasts healthy dachshunds and rabid owners. Get the inside scoop on what drives these champion dogs and their colorful owners to compete, including an investigation into allegations of animal exploitation, cheating, doping and race rigging. With dachshund races, field trials, and candid interviews with the world’s top show dog personalities, this film offers a crash course in wiener dog politics – and a glimpse into the divisive controversaries that have long dogged the dachshund community. Documentary. 69 min. USA/Canada
