Jamaican Wiener Dog Bobsled Team!

Last week I released my bobsled episode about the Jamaican Wiener Dog Bobsled Team! Of course, based on the old classic movie of ‘Cool Runnings’! Except ours is ‘Cool Wieners’!

There was a lot of work that went into this one, from the bobsled track we built in the backyard, to the bobsled itself made completely of cardboard, paper-mache, and an old sled for the base.

But before I show you how we did it all, including a another bloopers and behind-the-scenes video below, watch the final episode to compare to!

So firstly, were these adorable little speedsuit outfits and helmets! In fact, are made by a company called Shed Defender and are meant to stop dog hair from getting all over people’s homes.. But anyway, they also make great racing suits!

They do look a little silly though, and not sure what it is about them, but we walk and run very funny in them! Here was Oakley trying his on for the first time! lol

Hoppity hoppity hoppity…

You probably even noticed in our running sequence that our back ends were bouncing up really high!

The bobsled track took at least a day to make by itself, which we had to make on a day where the snow was wet enough (below 0 degrees celsius) to pack together, wherein it then froze the next day to be nice and hard (and slippery!)

Here’s Oakley exploring it for the first time!

Although it was slippery, us dogs managed okay on it. Dad on the hand, had a nice wipeout, which you can see in this blooper video!

So, lots of work like usual, but it made for a pretty awesome race! And the moral of the story…?

Yes, wiener dogs CAN be bobsledders! And our disqualification was ultimately overturned due to new legal regulations in Canada! 😉

If you enjoyed our episode and bobsled costume, check out the ‘Cool Wieners‘ t-shirt below!

Thanks for watching!

  5. Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund is literally the BEST Pet Care community anywhere, I read it everyday, and i’m also so grateful I found http://bit.ly/RechargeableDogCollar, it helped me to teach my dog basic obedience commands and solve an uncontrollable dog’s behaviour problems, hope it helps some others!

  6. “Since using Brain Training for Dogs my dogs are more excited to learn. They actively want to take part and figure out what they need to do! It’s not about “commanding” that they perform a behavior, it’s about getting them thinking. I really love this approach to dog training and my dogs do too!”
