The Sale Of Puppies Is Not Allowed At Wienerfest 2024.

Professional breeders are welcome at Wienerfest 2024 and are respected as important contributors to the breed's health.

Professional breeders can purchase an exhibitor space, set up a display, and have adult dogs with them, but they will not be allowed to have puppies. The reasons for this decision are:

  1. Wienerfest Home County Festival supports responsible breeders and trusts they will support this initiative. We encourage people who are looking to buy a puppy to find a responsible breeder and to take the time to research their options. Purchasing a puppy is a decision that must be carefully considered. We don't need or want any more commercial breeders and/or puppy mills.
  2. Part of evaluating a breeder is visiting the breeder and seeing the conditions in which the puppies are raised. If puppies were allowed to be purchased at Wienerfest 2024, this very important evaluation criteria would be missed.
  3. Buying a puppy is a commitment that must be seriously considered, as you will have that dog for its entire life. It can never be an impulse decision.

Wienerfest 2024 is a fun event to celebrate the breed that we all love. But it's also an event to promote responsible dog ownership and to build people's awareness of pet rescue.

All the proceeds from the Wienerfest 2024 Home County Festival go towards this cause.
