We have been going to the creek a lot the last couple of weeks and we have discovered that Rose LOVES the water. She has also inherited her mother’s obsession with retrieving. A dog that loves to retrieve and swim is made for Dock Dogs! A little searching on the internet found a club in southern Oregon, not far from our house.
Jumping off a dock into water is a little different than jumping from a bank, so we weren’t sure what to expect.
It didn’t take her long to figure it out!
She didn’t act like a novice for long! We all took turns throwing the bumper for her and quickly realized that getting the dog to jump off the dock is the easy part. To maximize the length of the jump, you need to throw it in a swooping arc up – not too close and not too far.
She is a great swimmer and was quick to bring the bumper back to us…
and then begged us to throw it again.
He had so much fun with his dog!
She may be small, but she makes a big splash!
