Dock Dogs competition at Comox Valley Exhibition

Record staff

New at the Comox Valley Exhibition this year is Dock Dogs.

Dock Dogs is an aquatic canine competition to see which pup can fly the furthest off a dock to retrieve an item.

Best of all, you can enter your dog.

Does Fido like to swim? Does he particularly like to get a running start to his swims? He might be the star of the show.

Onsite registration for the event is Friday at 11:30 a.m., Saturday at 9 and Sunday at 9.

Shows start approximately one hour later all three days.

There are Big Air Wave heats all three days, with the finals in the pro, semi-pro and amateur divisions Sunday at 3:15 p.m. There will be an Extreme Vertical comp Saturday (4 p.m., after the Big Air heats) and a Speed Retrieve competition Sunday at 2 p.m., between the Big Air heats and finals.
