Diva's of the Dock is a ‘long jump for dogs’

The dog, which may be placed anywhere on the 40 foot dock, runs and jumps into the water after a floating toy (provided by the handler) is thrown. The distance is judged from the end of the dock to where the tail set of the dog breaks the water’s surface. (No food is allowed on the dock or in the pool).

Diva's of the dock

is in loving memory of the beautiful

"DIVA" Of The Docks

Diva was a special dock jumping Siberian husky

that opened the door for many other sleddogs

to join the fun of dock jumping.

Diva is greatly missed and always cherished

Cheers to Diva

she's the reason this event exists
