Hey there, my name is Ellice and since a very young age I’ve been obsessed with dachshunds! I still remember the first time I saw a ‘sausage dog’ and knowing in that moment, that was the kind of dog for me.

Some 20 (odd) years later, the dream of owning Bangas and Mash finally came true. What we didn’t realise was just how much these 2 would impact our lives. What we’ve learnt about the breed in the past 8 years has been both interesting and challenging, but our special bond continues to grow each and every day.

Working in my day job as a graphic/web designer, I was bursting with ideas to combine my love of design with my obsession with dachshunds. After weeks (.. no make that months) of concepts, prototypes, mistakes and successes, Upside Dachshund was launched in the Summer of 2017.

All banners and flags are handmade from the design of the prints to the cutting, sanding, staining and assembling of each piece. Each piece is quality checked as only the best will do for you, our valued customer.

We source local, high quality products and materials and love supporting our fellow Aussie small businesses in doing so. We pride ourselves on being environmentally conscious and our plastic-free packaging is almost as amazing as the product itself.

We know our products can’t change the world but if we can put a smile on your face, warm your heart and fill your home with something that leaves a lasting impression, that’s what we are all about but don’t just take our word for it…

Here’s what our customers are saying:
