Iwatched this a bit last night on Animal Planet or OLN or something, and was fascinated by it, Meik would rock at it for sure. He's such a swimmer and diver.
Anyone involved in this sport?

Going to be starting this summer. The facility I train at has created a pond for it and will be teaching it in the warmer months. It looks like soooo much fun, can't wait!!!! :goodvibes:

I've seen that show - its hilarious to see how pumped the dogs are!

Toby loves to dive too....he does lakes or swimming pools. I wish I could find the photo of the pool dive.

Thanks! you too! :highfive:

Toby just loooovvvves to dock dive. He just hurls himself into the air with all his might and at maximum launch speed!

I don't think he'd win any competition though since he's not too great with distance and I think that's what they aim for.

Jemma's good with distance if she gets a running start and has good traction... :D I checked and I can't find any here in Qc... Oh well. :D

I have to show this to my daughter who wants a Portugese Water Dog ! (She already picked out a name--Scuba !!:laughing: ) I told her she can have one of those when she's home to give it all the exercise and swim time it needs !!

I was reading the DD facts since it's a sport I know near nothing about..
Unless otherwise stated your pup can wear a life jacket, haha.
