Here are the main three groups who do dock jumping:

www.splashdogs.com
www.ultimateairdogs.net
www.dockdogs.com

Dock Dogs is the only one who has clubs.

We compete with Ultimate Air Dogs and Milt who runs it travels through out the USA ans so does dock dogs. Splash dogs does too but is more focused on the east coast. Ultimate Air Dogs is the only organization you can earn UKC titles with the dogs through.

We have competed with all the organizations and all are great to work with. Just go have fun!

Does anyone know how to access the current list below? Records by breed? or how you would submit to be included in these records? We jump at official dockdog events, but are not national members of Dockdogs (just members of our regional club).

Ultimate Air Dogs is the only organization you can earn UKC titles with the dogs through.


Not anymore! Splash Dogs events will also earn you UKC titles.

AmstaffMommy, the records Brian posted are from Splash Dogs. Here is the updated ones:

I don't know how you can check the records for Dock Dogs. Maybe ask someone on their post board?

What are the stipulations that Splash Dogs has in place for dogs that are not registered? I'd love to participate, but my dog is not registered with any kennel clubs. Can I still title him?

BringBackup, your dog does not need to be registered with any of the clubs in order to compete and get titles. :) It doesn't even have to be a purebred.

Thanks Siberian. I've been searching around for sports he can compete in without him being registered and/or neutered. I'm going to try to make it out to a future dock diving event with him. He is like a Labrador in the water, one time downtown he jumped into a court house fountain and was barking like mad when I hauled his ass out. :dunno:

BringBackup, there is an event coming up in Sacramento:

The Dogs Pavilion Dock Jumping Competition presented by Canidae
Western States Horse Expo
Sacramento, CA
June 11-13, 2010

You can find more events here:
http://splashdogs.com/events/

Come by to the event. There is always chance and time to explore and try your dog at this. If he jumps during practice, you can even enroll him into the event and compete :)

And SD LOVES to see bullies at the events.

I saw that event, but I am heading to the coast with my dog that very weekend! I'll try to squeeze ourselves into the next one. I have no doubt that once he figures out jumping from a dock, he'll thoroughly enjoy it. He's a dog that you only have to clearly teach him something once and after that he "gets it".

What is adequate space that a dock diving dog would need to train for dock diving??


I am asking because I would liek to get my newest addition into some type of water sport.
I have read the essentials and so far my little guy has a great start. So far he shows signs of loving the water. (My first bully hates the water so he's a no go).

So with the question about space.....I have a large pond on my property that he can swim in. I am wondering if it is large enough to start training him in.


Thanks

bully_mommy, this is a great sport to start your dog in. Although your dog is still a puppy, so I wouldn't focus on training him per-se, rather just having fun with him in the water. If your large pond is at least 3 feet deep, it is safe to jump in.

Get some fun floating squeaky toys, like wubba, and let him enjoy the water, and chasing that toy in the water. Don't throw too far, maybe a foot or two in, so he is interested in catching it, rather than swimming for it. When he is older, you can work on the distance.

And lastly, you can read this:

Thanks Siberian...

The pond on my property is 25 ft. x 25 ft. x approximately 12 ft deep.

I have read all of the threads under dock diving 101 here. I will also read the link you have provided me with. I am going to further research dock diving online as well.

Thanks again.

Oy, your pond is big enough for ME to jump in :) I don't think you should have any worries there. What I would invest in (I don't know what kind of surface you have around your pond) is a long rubber mat, or some other material that won't get slippery when wet. Because your dog will be in and out of the water, there will be puddles and mud everywhere soon. You don't want him to slip and twist something.
