The World’s Premier Canine Aquatics Competition
We are delighted that DockDogs®will be joining us this 2023 year! DockDogs is a organization created in 2000 to create a nationally recognized competitive sport based on rules and precedents in Track and Field competitions. Its popularity comes from having national standards and objective measures that allow people to train competitively and have objective feedback on their progress. Plus, their open competitions allow “anyone with a dog and toy” to participate in the sport and have a chance at national recognition. DockDogs has fun and celebrates every improvement with their competitors, staff, sponsors, and spectators.
DockDogs consists of 3 different sporting disciplines:
- Big Air – the first sport of DockDogs® and the most popular, this is the Long Jump of canine aquatics.
- Extreme Vertical – introduced in 2005 it is considered the High Jump of canine aquatics.
- Speed Retrieve – launched in 2008 this is a timed sport involving the combination of run, jump, swim and retrieve.
