It's 8am on a gorgeously bright sunny Suffolk morning near the famous harbour at Southwold, the instantly instagrammable beachside town with its lovely old lighthouse and 'Royals' beach huts (so named as they're called Victoria, Albert and so on!). Whilst most SENSIBLE people might be in bed or enjoying a coffee over brunch, several thousand hardcore Daschy fans from all over the UK (and even further afield) are gradually congregating at the meeting point for the start of the 2022 World Record attempt at the world's largest Dachshund walk!

We were there too, with our marvellously mobile pooch pamper-station... stocked with all the things that Dachsies needed for the day ahead: especially our Fab Paw Balm, Wippets Wipes and Glove My Dog bamboo towel.

These are the essentials that every low-to-the-ground sausage on legs needs to complete a big beach walk. Or even just a run through wet grass! Dachshunds are prone to exposed skin, which is why we developed the deliciously nourishing Fab Paw Balm for all skin (snouts and pads as well as baldy bits on tummies and elbows). More about that here.

Come 10am and the crowd has swelled; you can't see a patch of grass or sand without a sausage dog on a lead. Siblings and extended doggy families are meeting up for the first time in years and everyone is excited to hear when the 'big off' - and more importantly the count - will take place.

We spot a few local celebs and some VERY well-known actors in the crowd; but there's no overshadowing the true stars of this show: more than 2,000 Dachsy of all colours, ages, coatlength and temperament. From the calm to the cannot-wait they're all tugging on the lead to get going

Come 12.30 and 'we're off!' Unfortunately the large inflatable Dachshund archway marking the start of the walk decided to de-flate at the worst possible moment but no panic, he was back up in a jiffy with a bit of extra puff from the organisers.

We loved meeting so many sausage dog owners, getting through lots of PAW-dicures ahead of the time on the harsh and salty beach and fitting up many owners with our handy Dry Shampoo, Glove My Dog towel and paw-klt Wippet wipes. More about our products ideal for Dachshunds here
