Dock Dogs

For some strange reason I can't access the PhotoHunt blog today so I will tell you about an amazing competion I watched a couple of weeks ago at the Country Game Fair in Norwich. It is called Dock Dogs and basically involves dogs jumping as far as the can into water.

It was the funniest thing I have seen in ages. Most of the dogs would run up and then refuse to jump in. When they eventually plucked up the courage to take the plunge the cheer from the crowd was fantastic.







Last year's winner



This one refused to get out and needed to be rescued!

This year's winning jump of around 22 feet I think




Dock Docks is huge in the states and the world record is over 28 feet. Here is the world record holder 'Country' doing a jump of over 25 feet.



I can't wait until I have a dog of my own that I can enter into this competition.

  3. Yeh he was amazing. I got absolutely soaked after taking that picture. If you watch the video you can hear screaming right at the end as people got drenched :P
