250 sausage dogs set to descend on central Manchester for huge party

The Revolution Parsonage gardens is set to be overrun with 250 sausage dogs on November 6th

The event has been set up by Pup-up Cafe who are inviting dachshund of all lengths and sizes to take part.

The Revolution Parsonage Gardens will be transformed into a huge space with loads of room for sausage dogs to roam free.

The day will consist of unlimited dog treats, free puppicinos for all the pooches, a professional photographer/videographer recording the event for precious memories, prizes given out to the best dressed dogs and ball pits, tunnels, toys and other fun props for you to play with.

We spoke to Marcus Akford, who has been setting up sausage dog cafes across the UK for about four years now.

He said: “We started the Pup up Cafes in late 2018, I got bored of the everyday dog events and decided to set up something a bit different and well, a bit more fun!

“We started in Exeter and about 200 sausage dogs turned up, we got a load of local businesses involved too which was great.

“Fast forward to 2022 and we’ve been all around the country and hosted in every major city really, been up to Manchester a few times now which has been great.

“We’ve been up to Manchester four times now and it’s great to see familiar faces, it’s growing every year so we hope this edition will carry on the success of previous years.”

The businesses at this years event will be:

DenimDogg – – custom dog denim jackets

Silly Sausage Emporium – handmade dog accessories

Paws London – Harnesses/leads/collars etc

Cannabark – Natural dog toys health/wellbeing supplies

EasyEat – Enhancing pet health through unique bowls

Butternut Box – Fresh dog food subscriptions

PawsomeSuits – Dog coats/fleeces

What a good boy!

Marcus said: “We’ve got so much fun stuff for the dogs and human to do, and the bar will be open!

“If your dog is nice and social and they want to socialise and get a few great photos – this is definitely the place to be.

“Why not come on down and chat all things sausage for an hour and half and meet some fellow sausage dog owners.”
