I thought I'd take Capra to a local Dock Diving event.
He's been in little paddling pools but never deep, clear water. Certainly never so deep he had to swim.
He's still quite young (14 weeks the day we went) so I wasn't sure he'd even be let in the water, but learning to attend events and wait around is part of his training, anyway.
The lovely folks at Houston Dive Dogs let us try it out.
After another couple tries on the ramp, off the dock he went:
Then a couple more practices down the ramp, and one final jump. Throw the toy a few feet out so he wants to jump for distance, they instructed. We did. He did.
What a puppy! A courageous leap for a young dog.
We are excited to see what his dock diving future brings!
