Oh. Atleast you have one in your area. I have no idea what I'm going to do, but I'm going to find a way to compete with Blaze - somehow.

We have a pond to the side of our apartment that we let the dogs go swimming in. There is a small dock there that Hannah started jumping off. So the other day we held her back a good 10 feet or so and boy can she jump. There is a place about 2 hours from here that does it. Maybe once we pass a few Obedience classes we can go try it out.

We have a decent amount of dock dogs here. Once registered for a heat, you can go practice jump in the pool. Only my kids won't jump even in life jackets. There's a 2 day event coming up here locally, but it's pointless for me to go sadly.

Chance would had made an awesome dock diving dog. he loved water and would actually run full speed and jump off of the boat dock here at the lake near my house. Ruckus would just watch him like "umm no way"

Dekka loves DD. She screams at the other dogs when they jump.. (its her pool don't you know) She is small and doesn't jump far (about 7 feet) but hey she loves it. Zo reallllly loved DD. SHe would start screaming in excitement as soon as she was up on the dock and saw the water!

Its a fun sport. I have found the people really friendly and its easy to get into.

Kim, already contacted Nancy at DixieDockDogs. Just looking at the calander for DockDogs.com, DixieDockDogs seems to have alot of practices at different sites in and around the Atlanta area. Which isn't bad. Atlanta is only 2.5 hours away. But I think I'm going to train mostly on my own. 2.5 hours is a long way for just a couple hours practice.

Tenitively I'm looking at a competition in August.

Haha, should've known youd beat me to it!

If you're coming this way anytime let me know! I'd get Enzo involved, but she's not very toy driven.

What about Oz? Does he jump far? I could see Oz doing the Extreme Vertical.

I'll let you know. Right now I don't see anything in the Atlanta area as far as competitions go.

Next year you need to come down to the Aflac Outdoor Games in Columbus.
