Get ready for some splashing good times and dock jumping fun. On Saturday, June 10th and Sunday June 11th Argyle Feed and Hardware will be hosting a dog splashing fun dock jumping event sponsored by Canidae. Presented by Splash Dogs, this event will sure bring joy and excitement to your family pet.
As a dog enthusiast, the Splash Dogs company decided to create this event and bring it to all dogs across the United States. We hope to see you and your dog at this fun family event.
Dock Jumping Day Safety Tips
- Introduce your dog to the exit ramp and get them familiar with the dock
- Have some practice runs at the exit ramp and throw their toy into the water
- Help your dog out of the pool after a jump, you are a team
- Don’t over jump your dog, like an athlete they need to be warmed up and also have rest time
- Keep dogs leashed at no more than 4 feet, the day will have many dogs walking about the event
- Never push or throw your dog into the water
- Let them go potty before their jump, it’s probably a good idea that you go too
- For your comfort don’t forget to bring chairs, sunscreen, hats, towels and drinking water and snacks for you and your dog
- Always remember to encourage your dog’s excitement by letting them know they did a good job after each jump and a little treat is always a positive re-enforcement
