Several owners were wearing jumpers with ‘Dachshund through the snow’ stitched on the front.
It’s a good opportunity for her dog to “make friends” and learn to be more sociable, she added.
Prior to the event, details of the walk that were previously published online were pulled from the internet in advance of the event by listings website Secret London, who blamed the decision on the “crazy amount of interest” organisers had received.
“This one, we expect, is going to be the biggest.
“It is a growing group.”
She added: “It is a good way to socialise the dogs with the same breed and to meet more dog owners.
“They love to play with their own breed and I think it is really good for them.”
Thomas Brand, 32, who brought his dog Teddy, said: “We love how many people are here. Everyone seems really happy and Teddy really loves it.”
