Dock Dogs Performance at 2017 Melbourne Dog Lovers Show, Melbourne, Friday, 05. May 2017

BlackHawk is the major sponsor of Australia’s most exciting Dog entertainment and competition with a wide range of breeds launching themselves off a dock into a massive pool of water!
DockDogs® WOWED visitors at the Sydney Dog Lovers Show and so we are bringing it to Melbourne in 2017!

Unlike any other canine competition, there is a zero discrimination policy so Dogs competing in the World Wide rankings can be any breed, mix or size providing they are over 6 months old.

It’s a show and a competition all in one packed with entertainment! Essentially DockDogs® is long jump for Dogs but into a pool of water with the Edginess of Competition. DockDogs® Australia National Competition has a multi-divisional competition presenting the Big Air® Wave competition accompanied by an Extreme Vertical® and Speed Retrieve® competition for both competitors and spectators to enjoy.

The Big Air® competition is Long Jump for Dogs, where Dogs jump in one of 4 divisions to make the finals. It features Dogs running down a 40’ dock and diving into a pool of water after an object, in which they are electronically judged for the length of their jump.

The Extreme Vertical® competition is a “High Jump” for Dogs as they each lunge to snag a “bumper” suspended in the air from heights of 6 foot+.

Rounding out the action is the newest form of competition known as Speed Retrieve® where Dogs are put on the clock to see how fast they can run down the dock, jump into the water, swim to the end of the pool and retrieve an object which is held by a modified extender arm.
