    I have a 15-month-old Labrador who loves to JUMP - really loves to jump - and I would love to try Dock Dogs with him. Does anyone on here already do this fun sport with their dog? Or anyone who wants to? I would love to hear your training tips and about your experiences with the sport. Boaz (my dog) and I are still working on the sit-wait, on-land jump, and returning the bumper to me (his tendency is after he gets it to just run off and chew on it...), but I'm hoping to do some water work soon.

    Just started training my pup to dock dive! She is a 7 mo American Staffordshire Terrier and just managed to dive off the 18" high dock, so we are going to try the taller dock this weekend! It is a good sport for all this hot weather! [​IMG]

    You have a great looking lab!

    Quote:Thank you! I'm glad to hear from someone else who's doing it, too. [​IMG] I need to find a dock so we can really do it - so far I don't have anywhere to do the actual dock jump. [​IMG] There is a dock near my house, but I don't know whether they want dogs swimming around it....

    What's your AmStaff's name? [​IMG] I'd love to see a picture.
