Making Waves


Did you know there were X-games for dogs?


In my quest to spark ideas for a post using the letter ‘X’ for the April A to Z Challenge,
I googled x-games for dogs.

Maxie and Mia – taking a not so extreme walk!

The majority of search results were for dock jumping. Some of these events have been around for almost 20 years.  Dogs run down a dock and their owner/handler tries to get them to jump as far as they can.  I am mesmerized by the talent these dogs display; and cannot image all the training that goes into preparing a dog for this sport.

The websites that provide information on this sport are very interesting and the photos of these events is nothing short of astounding.  Seeing these dogs in action would truly be the kind of experience you wouldn’t soon forget.

Have you ever tried an ‘X-game’ with your dog?  Or more specific, dock diving?
