THE HIGH FLYING ACTION OF DOCKDOGS® RETURNS TO PET LIFE,
SCARBOROUGH, ME - JUNE 24TH, 25th and 26th

Scarborough, ME. – This year’s Pet Life Anniversary event will be host to the high
flying action of DockDogs® the independent governing and sanctioning body for dock
jumping and dock diving canine performance sports. The exciting and crowd drawing
action will be taking place at Pet Life in Scarborough (at the corner of Payne Rd and
Haigis Pkwy; Exit 42 off 95 – formerly The Kennel Shop), so make sure to come see
this weekend event and experience the fastest growing sport for canines in North
America: DockDogs!

Throughout the weekend DockDogs® will present the Big Air® Wave, Extreme
Vertical® and Speed Retrieve® Competitions. The Big Air® competition features dogs
running down a 40’ dock and diving into a pool of water to be judged electronically
for the length of their jump. The Extreme Vertical® competition is a “High Jump” for
dogs as they lunge to snag a “bumper” suspended in the air. With each grab, the
height increases in 2-inch increments until only one dog is crowned king. Rounding out
the action is Speed Retrieve® – where the dogs are put on the clock to see how fast
they can run down the dock, jump into the water, swim to the end of the pool and
retrieve an object which is held by a modified extender arm.

The competitions are open to everyone. Teams are made up of one dog (any breed,
size or shape, over the age of 6 months) and one handler (over age 7). There is even a
Junior Handler class for those between the ages of 7-14.

A link to the DockDogs pre-registration page is available on petlifestores.com, or you
can register on-site at the beginning of each day. DockDogs® is the independent
governing and sanctioning body for regional, national and international dock jumping
performance sports. DockDogs® establishes the rules and standards of the sport,
tracks results and records and supports and promotes the growth of its athletes,
events, spectators, and sponsors. For additional information visit www.dockdogs.com.
