Dock Diving Dogs at SEWE

More of the "Big Air" competition

the dog in the background prepares!

and launches!

on to the "High Vertical" competition, my favorite! This is what they are after:

This dog listens and watches intently before the big jump

this competitor lets out a joyful bark as the owner points out the target



This dog has his eye on the target and nothing else! I am amazed at their intensity and their focus!

Taking his turn!

Another competitor grabs it!

I think this dog's name is Alex. They said he is a rare silver retriever. He got it!

 This beautiful dog hears words of encouragement right before it's big leap

Now they are both jumping! Air jaws!

An intense moment between dog and handler. The dog is completely focused on the target, all muscles tensed and ready to leap

Its a catch!!

Another competitor takes the plunge

Words of encouragement for this dog, who has already focused on the hanging target

The tension grows as its now down to just these two last competitors, who are the top scorers in this event.

Launch for the target!

Another catch!

Last jump for the day

All the dogs were a joy to watch and they all did great!
