Dock Diving And Other Pet Sports.

I’ve always been interested in the sport called dock diving. Its very popular on the coastal regions,east and west. People train their pets specifically for this very athletic event. When it is a dog’s turn, the trainer usually has his/her dog sit and then takes a toy and throws it as far as possible into the giant pool.

Instinctively, the dog goes after it and ends up jumping far. The farther the dog goes before landing in the water is the winner. They measure where the nose  is. I’m just so amazed at how far these dogs can jump. The record right now is at 29ft 1in held by Smoke, a chesapeake bay retriever.

Do you know of any pet sports that are more interesting as that. I would love to hear your comments on your favorite pet sports, or even sports you’ve made up.!
