No .... the owner/handler throws a dummie or ball from a dock and they measure the distance where the dog hits the water,,,,longest leap wins. Last year a black Lab won the national second year in a row.

I'd love to see what Shiva would do. I know one thing - she'd definitely win for biggest splash

Of course, if Shiva did it, Kharma would have to do it to show us she can do better . . . she is SOOOOO competitive . . .

Yeah I saw two different competitions. One was where the dog had to sit behind a line and the owner went to the edge of the dock and throws the ball and the dog runs and jumps off and they measure the distance. Then I also saw one where they hang the dummy between two ropes and the dog has to run and jump and try to get the dummy and they measure the vertical distance so whatever dog gets the most air basically wins lol.

Teddy loves to swim and loves to fetch his ball in the water. Even when he is tired he doesn't want to stop lol. I would love to get him into something like that, something we can do together

I just watched it yesterday for the first time. I'd love to go see one of those competitions in person. Maybe there's a website on the internet. I haven't look yet myself.
