Dock Diving

Pippin went dock diving yesterday for the first time. We had him go in and out of the pool though the exit ramp a few times so he new how to get out and then brought him up to the dock. He was unsure at first, kept, excitedly barking but once he dove in he wanted to do it over and over. He actually dove in before I threw the ball . I need to work on making him wait tobbe released
He loved it so much I registered him with NADD North American Diving Dogs and we are going to keep it up!

Dock diving is great fun Joey and I have been doing it "unprofessionally" since he was 1 or 2… and we've been jumping in competitions for about a year now. His second competition he came in 2nd in Junior, but jumped a senior jump!

Great pictures! Great fun

So much fun! We plan to get Noah into dock diving when his growth is mature. Not sure how safe it is for growing pups' joints - anyone know?

That looks like so much fun, we don't have any dock diving events in my area either.
I think my boy would really enjoy dock diving.

Dock Diving

My puppy is now 15 months, and he loves dock diving. He spent the summer training and is ready to break into competition this spring.
