 On 3 September, the 17th All-Russian Festival "Chekhov's Dachshunds" will take place at the A.P. Chekhov's Melikhovo Museum-Reserve. This is the most unusual festival held in the Moscow region, it unites all fans of this hunting breed. Behind the funny appearance of dachshunds, there is a great physical strength, intelligence, optimism and loyal heart. The guests and participants will enjoy exciting sports activities, soap bubble show, master classes, raffles, photo sessions, meetings with cynologists and advice from the best training centres. An obligatory part of the programme is a fashion show competition for the participating dogs.

Dachshunds were brought to Russia at the end of the 19th century, so Chekhov became one of the first owners of this breed. Two dachshunds lived in Melikhov - Hina and Brom, given to Anton Pavlovich by Nikolai Leikin, the publisher of the magazine "Oskolki". Observing their characters, the writer noted:   "The dachshunds Brom and Hina are alive. The first one is agile and flexible, polite and sensitive, the second one is clumsy, fat, lazy and sly...".
