Canine Cannonball Contests
Big Air WAVE
One of the most enjoyable competitions in the event, this contest consists of the dog running down the 40x8 foot competition dock and jumping off into the water for distance. While past winners have jumped as far as 25 feet, the average distance is usually only about 10 feet.
This is DockDogs' version of the high jump. In this event, a canine leaps high into the air off the “dock” to retrieve a toy suspended above the water.
This is a timed fetching event that has the dog jumping into the water and swimming to fetch a toy that was thrown into the water.
Comparable to a triathlon, participants in this contest will have their best score in each of the three disciplines from the event (Big Air WAVE, Extreme Vertical and Speed Retrieve) calculated from the points table. The goal is to achieve the highest points table.
The concept of dogs jumping off docks as a performance sport originated here in the U.S., when dock workers would bet on how far their dogs could jump into the water. DockDogs has been the independent governing and sanctioning body for regional, national and international dock-jumping events for dogs since 2000. DockDogs tracks each official jump of all competitors, ranking the dogs nationally. In 2010, DockDogs sanctioned 150 events in four different countries that attracted more than 10,000 canine competitors.
