If he gets WET it will be a success! Gonna practice at my friends pond. So far he will sorta flop in off the side/shallow area.
I'm so amped to try it for real!

well...we went to the dock dogs event and he did not jump off the dock.  :thumbsdown:
I REALLY thought he would. He wanted to soo badly. He whined and barked and threw a fit because he could not get to his toy. He was sooo close. I had him jump off the ramp part just so he would have a success.
He did draw a big crowd and got lots of attention.

Everyone at dockdogs was so nice and helpful. they all wanted to see a boxer do it. It's all labs, goldens or mixed retriever type dogs.

There is another event close by in 2 weeks. I think we will practice at my friends pond and possibly hit up the next event. I think once he gets it, he will really have fun with it.

Awww Poor Strum. So close, yet so far! I bet once he gets over that first jump, you'll have a hard time keeping him out of the water and off the dock! Silly boy...just go get your toy, will ya?! lol

Better luck next time, bud!

Aww! If he wants to do it, that's half the battle right? Now he just needs to learn he can!

His cheering section is routing for him!  :cheerleader: Go Strummer!

Dock diving is huge around here!  Go figure, all the lakes and all the Labs.  ::)

Anyway, Bugsy dives in off the end of the dock.  It's over his head and he has to do his lame swimming moves, but he will do it continuously.  He doesn't really get any air unless we are out in the water encouraging him to come to us.
