Cool Dock diving practice

I was smart and remembered to bring my video cam and tripod to the lake today so I have video from our first two practice sessions with both Aeri and Kes! I figured you all might enjoy seeing what practice looks like, not just competition, so here it is!



Aeri's first session was abruptly cut short when a pontoon boat decided to practically run us over with their suv and trailer despite having 3 other dock/ramp spots available. I had to leap off the dock into 2' of water to grab Aeri. Grr.

Other than that, we had our usual good time!

Aeri is so cute!! She just kind of....sproings (lol) off the end of the dock whereas Kes is flinging himself off the end. I love dock dog stuff, it's crazy how far they can go!

That was SO AWESOME

Kes was just amazing and Aeri is doing so good! Does she have the water in the satellite ear dishes too?

Jealous of your dock! Have you gotten Aeri jumping into a pool pool yet?

Yea Aeri gets water in her ears and tries to shake off while in the water - it's too funny to watch!

Aeri has not seen a pool yet (no available for practice), but her first competition is a week from tomorrow which is in a pool, so she'll get some practice time in it before her first official Wave. Kes was hesitant his first time in a pool so I expect the same for her, but she has stronger ball/toy lurve than Kes so I suspect it will be short lived hesitance. Not to mention that the drop is almost identical and our water is quite clear at this lake vs. Kes' first time in a pool after practicing on the dock in the spring when the water was muddy and much higher.

Aeri is entered in a single Big Air Wave both Saturday and Sunday, Kes is entered in 2 Big Air Waves on Saturday and a Big Air Wave and Speed Retrieve on Sunday.

I feel so bad for Trav when he is swimming back and get's water in his ears and looks like he's having mini seizures trying to get it out in the water.

Good luck to you guys! Can't wait to hear how it goes!

As much as Cricket seems to really take to the water I seriously wonder how she'd do at dock diving. I love love watching Kes jump.
