In the hot weather, what better way to cool off than with a plunge into a pool?
Many dogs seem to enjoy leaping into water whatever the weather which may explain the reason behind the world wide canine sport of Dock Dogs, where dogs launch themselves into a 40 feet long swimming pool. Robert Kemeny is the UK and European manager of the sport. In this video, he tells us the origin of the sport, about the equipment used and about the different elements of competition. If you think this is something your dog might enjoy, DockDogs offer a number of practise sessions that gradually encourage your dog into the water. They won't have to be "in at the deep end", well not immediately anyway!
