Big Air® is a “long jump for dogs”. The dog, which may be placed anywhere on the 40′ dock, runs and jumps into the water after a throw toy (provided by the handler) is tossed. The distance is judged from the end of the dock to where the tail set of the dog breaks the water’s surface.
A Few Simple Rules
The dog must be AT LEAST 6 months old, and handler must be AT LEAST 7 years old to compete or practice.
No pushing, shoving or throwing the dog in the water. He/She must go willingly!
When at a DockDogs® event all dogs must be on a 4′ leash, 8′ away from other dogs at all times or in a crate within the kenneling area.
