Dachshund owners in Ayrshire are being invited to get in Christmas spirit at a special sausage dog party.

Sausage dogs and their owners are being invited to Party Like a Dachshund at a specially created event that will see pups invited to meet Santa Paws and enjoy a photoshoot.

Located at Harperlands Dog Run indoor arena in Kilmarnock, the party is open to all dachshunds and their owners and includes an hour of off-lead play time in the indoor arena as well as a chance to meet the real Santa Paws himself.

The sausage dogs can groove to Christmas songs while gorging on unlimited puppicinos and doggie treats.

While humans are allowed in for free, each dog must have an entry ticket, as an event is for the whole family with doggie photoshoots available.

Party Like a Dachshund also provides an opportunity for other dog owners to connect with others, while participating in games and fun activities.

Local pet businesses will also be showcasing their products, including treats and accessories in time for Christmas.

The event - to be held on Sunday, November 26 - follows the successful Party Like A Cockapoo, but this time it combines the joy of Christmas with the magic of owning a sausage dog.
