sorry to hyjack for a moment but Josefina LOVES water & she loves jumping into the water & she loves to fetch, i think she would love dock dogs but is there a size requirement or limitation? she is about 18 inches tall & weighs about 30ish pounds.

No size limitations - there are divisions, but they are based solely on jump length, not dog size. They do have a LapDog class at the bigger events, that's reserved for dogs under 17" tall.

I've seen videos of chihuahuas and dachshunds. Come to think of it I've never seen a great Dane though...

Congrats!!!!!!

I saw a Dane at Eastern Regionals and she was a Veteran. (She passed a few weeks later, but she had a blast that weekend!)

That's SO cool, I have a friend with a greater Swiss and we're going to try our best. She loves to swim at the lake and has a ton of drive so wish us luck. :P

There were two Berners at the Blue Ridge event this year - they were jumping 13-16'.

Well, another master's leg with a 20ft jump, and one senior leg with a 19ft jump. Pulled some GREAT jumps in practice, tho. haha.

After giving it a super hard go at EV...we're just sticking with BA. He's my awesome little BA dog. He tried really hard, but just doesn't want to go off the dock unless it's like BA. And in our last wave at 6 (after 2 BA waves and boat loads of practice in BA and EV the whole day) he decided he was thoroughly confused by all the EV training we had done and was worn slap out. So no jumps, unless you count the 8ft first jump he did after stopping at the end. O.o Oh boy.

The refusing to jump does have me slightly concerned, just because...holy smokes, 23ft flying dog last night to...wont even go off the dock tonight. It got cloudy and kind of dark during our last jump where he decided he did not want to jump, would that have anything to do with it? How the water looks? We went back up for a little bit after that wave and tried again...nothing. He was super tired and I'm sure confused by the EV stuff. He did jump off the ramp, which doesn't make me totally freak.

When we jumped at night at a comp here all of the dogs were jumping strangely. He was also mentally and physically tired, I wouldn't sweat it.

That is an AWESOME BA jump, I'd keep trying with the EV and SR though. Don't be discouraged!
