Dave’s Soda and Pet City Hosts DockDogs Event This Weekend

AGAWAM — This weekend, DockDogs, one of America’s fastest-growing sports for dogs, is being held at Dave’s Soda and Pet City, 151 Springfield St., Agawam. The event is slated for Friday, June 2 from noon to 5 p.m.; Saturday, June 3 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, June 4 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Some of the nation’s top canine competitors will leap into thrill-packed action for the public. The DockDogs will show off their jumping ability by diving into a four-foot-deep, 40-foot-long pool of water after sprinting down a 40-foot dock — both for length in the ‘Big Air’ category and for height in the ‘Extreme Vertical’ competition. Each dog’s trainer throws a toy into the water, and the dog has 90 seconds to run down the dock and launch himself after it.

In the past 18 months, more than 7,800 teams have signed on to compete in this booming sport. The DockDogs concept originated when men working on the docks waged bets with each other to see how far their dogs could jump in the water. For more information on the sport, visit www.dockdogs.com.
