Tucker loves to run and jump and play fetch and catch things...sounds like a dock dog in the making to me. Is anyone involved with Dock Dogs? I want to know how to get involved and if it's fun and good for your labs? Thanks!!
Emmett Jumps with Ultimate Air Dogs and I know they continue to expand but don't think they have gotten to your area on a regular basis. I looked into Dock Dogs when they were in Frankenmuth a couple months back but didn't end up going.
I don't know where in Maryland you are located, but you could contact the Chesapeake DockDogs club. A lot of clubs hold group practices, so that would be an excellent place to start. Most of the DockDogs people I've met from all over are very friendly and helpful with getting your dog started in dock diving. Their website is: Chesapeake Dock Dogs
There are also other dock diving groups such as Ultimate Air Dogs. It looks like UAD was at the Maryland Dog Fest back in May of this year. I don't think there are any UAD clubs in Maryland yet.
I've seen everything from a Jack Russel to a Great Pyrnees jump.. It's so entertaining
