Fun at the Pool!
What better way for dogs to have fun and stay cool in the summer than dock diving?!
It's always a blast to match these high flying aquanuts flinging themselves off the dock and splashing into the pool with pure enjoyment. Some of these super athletes can jump 25' or more before splashing down in the water.
Sanctioned competitions will be held over the three day event. North American Diving Dogs will be hosting the events and dogs from all over the country will be entered. It promises to be a very fun filled day, for dogs and people.
Dock diving is a great way to have fun with your dog while providing them with an opportunity to get that exercise they so much need.
Maybe your dog could be a dock diving dog?
Lessons are available.
Come on out and give it a try!
