In late summer of 2017, we had the opportunity to introduce some of our dogs to the sport of Dock Diving. This is a very refreshing activity here in Arizona where the temperatures are frequently above 100 degrees. Any dog can participate in the sport, regardless of size. Houdini, Zeus, Lance, Lea and Abbi all got to get in the pool and see if they wanted to participate.
We knew we had at least one dog that would like this sport. Little did we know that we would have a natural dock diver in our pack. Can you guess who it is? If you guessed Lance you are correct. Normally the "handler' will stand at the edge of the dock with a toy to throw out over the pool. The dog will then jump out to catch the toy. That was not the case with Lance. All Jack had to do was get in the pool and Lance would jump off the dock to get to him. His initial jumps were in the 5-7 foot range which is not bad for a beginner. We will be continuing with dock diving with hopes to get a title or two for our dogs.
