Has anyone had any experience using their GSP as a dock dog? I'm watching the way my pup jumps off things and he looks like he would be a natural. I've watched some competitions over the years and I don't recall ever seeing a GSP.
Was wondering how to get a dog started on dock jumping. Gunner swims just fine but i cant get him to jump off of a dock.
I take Barley to the dog beach in the summer atleast 3 to 4 times a week! Barley took to the water immediately and started jumping off the dock within the first week of being introduced to the water. I have not gotten him into any competitions but he sure gets a lot of spectators when we are out there! His dock jumping toy is a simple bumper but he goes nuts over it and simply cannot stop!
Even if you never compete this is THE BEST way I have found to wipe Barley out. Simply put when we spend an hour at the dock Barley is so drained once we get home he hardly gets up to eat dinner! I know we all try to find new ways to wipe these guys out and I think this is the best I have found yet!
