Jump in, The water's fine!

Jump in, The water's fine!

Fun things to do with your dog!


Today we are talking dock jumping with Heidi Mobley. Heidi and her friends developed the dock jumping program for the Australian Shepherd Club of America!
 
Heidi shares her experience getting the dock jumping program submitted and approved as an ASCA program.
 
We talk about training and preparing for dock jumping competitions. And address issues like dogs who are afraid of water and how to get them to jump of the edge of the dock!
 
Did you know the longest Aussie jump recorded in ASCA at the time of this recording was 26 feet! Where the nub lands! Heidi gives us some great advice on how to get started in the fun and exciting new sport of dock jumping! Jump in the water's fine!
