More Dock Dogs at the Cold Wet Nose Show

Dock Dogs is among the latest dog activities to arrive in the UK. In Dock Dogs, dogs jump off a dock into water. The length of the jump is recorded, with the aim being to get the furthest jump possible. Dock Dogs is a low impact activity, so dogs who find other activities too strenuous, can still participate. Older dogs, young dogs, and any size of dog can compete or just have a go.
