what is dock divinG
Dock jumping also known as 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 dock jumping events all across the United States. Not interested in competing? You don't need to compete to enjoy dock diving with your canine companion.
You can begin jumping your own dog in your own pool, teaching him to track the toy, stride, and launch.
Once he is proficient you can go to a "practice pool" or competition pool where they rent it out to begin to get hi/her to jump off the dock and build confidence.
Our Dogs love it so much we have our own pool to practice and condition them for the dock diving season.
