Dock diving

Hi!
I have 11/2 yr old pitbull that LOVES the water. I take him to the river every day and he loves jumping off rocks with me and does it by himself too. He's obsessed with jumping into the water. A friend of mine mentioned dock diving to me so I started researching it. It looks like SO much fun and I think buster would just love it!
I was wondering However how to train for that? And are there classes you can/should take? Also how would I find out about shows?
He is a quarter American bulldog so would there even be shows he could compete in?

Thank you so much for your time!!

Depending on your area you will either have Splash Dogs or Dock Dogs. I do Splash Dogs with my boy. He has a blast with it I'd start by checking your area for clubs. We have one in my area that offers training classes to help you get started. I never joined that club. I have a dock like 2 mins from my house so weve done our own independent training. I did go up and practice with them a week or two before the event last weekend and it was a ton of fun. Just check the websites for Splash Dogs or Dock Dogs to see the event lists. Sometimes they have fun jumps and you can pay 10$ for unlimited pool use all day. Fun jumps are a great way to build confidence and get them used to doing events. That's where we started We just did out first real competition and my boy earned two legs towards his SPD title

Your very welcome. It's an all breed event too so him being mixed is no biggie

Good luck you two, I hope you find something in your area. It reall is so much fun.

Oh that's so cool!! Where do you get the toys that sink? I thought about getting some for buster boy to see if he liked it but I can only find floating toys at the feed store!
