Distance jumping is the main feature of our events.
Dogs run down a dock and fly into a 40' pool (or lake), with the distance judged from the end of the dock to the base of the dog’s tail where it enters the water.
In Fetch-It, a bumper is suspended 4ft off the water, starting at a minimum distance of 10ft out. The dog must knock the bumper off within 2 tries in order to move to the next level. The bumper is moved out at 1ft increments and the dogs take turns going for the FETCH! A dog stays in the competition until it either misses twice in one level, or 3 times in total. The dog that knocks the bumper off at the furthest distance with the least amount of misses wins.
Chase-It is a timed swimming race.
Dogs begin by doing a standing jump from the end of the dock, into the pool, and swim to the 35ft mark of the pool. The timer starts when the dog leaves the dock. Each dog gets 2 back-to-back chances for a best time. There are usually two handlers per dog: one at the far end of the pool, waving and cheering the dog to the finish line and one on the dock to release the dog.
Catch-It is like a Splash, with a major twist.
If the dog makes the catch, two distances are recorded: where the dog makes the catch, and where the dogs tail lands in the water.
Each dog gets 2 back-to-back chances to make their best catch. The distances are then added together for the score.
Not only is it an added challenge for the dog to catch the throw object while in mid-air, it also requires intense concentration, spot-on timing, and strategy from the handler.
Catch-It is played by the most highly skilled teams. It is extremely fun to watch, and highly addicting!
