10am – 3:30pm

The DockDogs wetted & wowed visitors with high-flying dog-jumping entertainment & competitions!

The DockDogs will make a HUGE splash in our indoor 100,000-litre pool in 2024!

We’re thrilled to have Shaun Madden MC-ing all the canine aquatic sporting action, including:

  • Big Air – Long jump for dogs! K9 competitors start anywhere on the 40-foot dock, then run and jump into the water, chasing down a throw toy tossed by their handler. The official distance is judged from the end of the dock to where the dog’s tail breaks the water’s surface.
  • Speed Retrieve – Pitting pooches against ticking clock! How it works: at the far end of the pool, a bumper toy is suspended above the water with a starting indicator above it. Competitors are positioned at the start line on the dock and when the light turns green, the handler releases the dog to pull the toy from the Speed Retrieve bracket, stopping the time clock.
  • Extreme Vertical – High jump for dogs! Competitors start at the 20-foot mark on the dock and jump up to grab a bumper toy extended from the end of the dock over the water.

Our competition DockDogs will be announced closer to the Festival.
