Dog Sports

Dock Diving is a dog sport in which dogs compete in jumping for distance or height from a dock into a body of water. There are some super fun events in the US and Melissa and her dog Zeek try to compete when they have time. doggie du good dock diving Zeek and I compete in Ultimate Air Dog and Dock Dogs. His longest jump on record is 19'6".   Kenzie doesn't really do it. We want Addie to but at the moment she doesn't like water. She says she sinks.

The dock is usually 35 to 40 ft (11 to 12 m) long by 8 ft (2.4 m) wide and 2 ft (0.6 m) above the water surface, but may differ depending on the sanctioning organization. Any body of water or pool that is at least 4 ft (1.2 m) deep can be used. The dock is covered in artificial turf, carpet, or a rubber mat for better traction and safety for the competitors. The handler may use any amount of the dock and they may start their dog from any point on the dock when competing
