DockDogs is the leading promotor of the fastest growing
canine sport in central Pennsylvania. We are an affiliate
club of DockDogs®. DockDogs® is the governing and
sanctioning body of BIG AIR®, EXTREME VERTICAL®, and SPEED
is the long jump
equivalent for canine athletes. At speeds over 20mph these
dogs catapult themselves off the end of a 40 foot dock into
a body of water to retrieve their favorite toy. Jump
distance is measured from the end of the dock to where the
base of the dog’s tail breaks the water. The current world
records are 29’ 3" for indoor set by Baxter and a tie
of 31' 0"
outdoor set by Taz and Cochiti.
is a high jump contest.
Man’s best friend launches upward, nearly seven feet in the
air, to quench his instinctual desire to play fetch in its
extremist form. Rather than clearing a cross bar like in
track and field, the dogs knock down a Flappy, which is
suspended over the water, eight feet out from the end of the
dock. The current world records are 8' 4" set by Bo and
8' 4" outdoor set by Yeager.
tests canine quickness.
Dogs are lined up at the twenty-foot mark on the dock.
Handlers release their dog on the start command. Dogs then
run, jump and swim to the end of the pool to retrieve a
Flappy. The quickest dog to detach the Flappy wins.
The current world records are 4.442 seconds indoor set by
Remi and 4.751 seconds outdoor set by Jordan.
