Dock Diving

Dock diving or dock jumping is the sport of dogs competing to jump the greatest distance or the greatest height from a dock into a pool or other body of water. Some dock diving competitions also include speed retrieves and events combining the three disciplines of height, distance and speed.  Normally the dog's handler stands on the dock and throws a toy or "bumper" into the water for the dog to retrieve after jumping.
