Sunday I'm taking Sally over to the Atlanta Dock Dog club and let her try out her skills at dock jumping. They said 6 months is the cut off age, and she'll be 6 months next week. She loved to swim and absolutely LOVES jumping, so I think this will be a natural thing for her. It's not an event, just a practice time for the dogs....and to introduce new dogs to the pool and dock.
I know she's not ready to actually compete yet. Her sit/stay isn't solid enough, but I think it will be fun to let her see what's going on and actually get some pool time.
Also, my husband (who is a professional sports photographer) is going to go and take some photos, so I should have some good ones to post afterwards.
I just hope we don't freeze. The high here is only supposed to be about 58. What happened to Spring? ???
Oh wow....what a great time you'll all have I bet (even though it'll be cold)
Make sure to post your pictures
How fun!! I can't wait to see the pictures!!
I wish we would have something like that around here. Jake likes to swim, but he's afraid to jump off the dock at the park : big baby.

Can't wait to see pics!

I'm afraid this is going to be Sally. She's a little scardy cat about stuff at first....well, maybe not scardy cat, but at least she's very, very cautious!Originally Posted by yellojakesmom
The the guy organizing this club has a choco lab and said his dog wouldn't jump until about the third event. So maybe it's okay if they are hesitant at first. He said he's sure Sally will be off the dock in no time! ;D
OOH, fun, yes, make sure you get pictures!
See my sig! It took Thor a while and I LMAO when he first tried. Bless his heart! :-*
Sounds like fun! I bet with the other dogs jumping she'll do it in no time they learn from each other.
;D Thank you! See if you can get a video of Sally jumping as well. I'd love to see it!I've always loved that pic!
I will try but that will be hard. I am the one who really handles her. Hubby only give her treats and scratches her behind the ears. So I will be the one actually working with her and might not be able to do video too. We shall see! But if not this time, I am sure another time.Originally Posted by liveelayne
