DockDogs comes to the Lonesome Dove Fest
Big Air is probably DockDogs most popular competitive event. It’s a long jump for dogs. The dogs are judged on the distance they can jump from the edge of the dock (or pool).
In Extreme Vertical, a bumper is suspended in heights ranging from 4’6″ up to as high as a dog can jump. The bumper is extended out 8 ft from the edge of the dock. Each dog gets 2 attempts.
There is also a timed event. Speed Retrieve is where the dog sprints down the dock, jumps into the water and swims fast to retrieve the bumper at the end of the pool. The less time it takes your dog to grab the bumper the better the score.
Just more exciting events to enjoy or participate in at the 22nd Annual Lonesome Dove Fest, September 19th and 20th 2014 will have the following events this year.
