Big Air

Think of Big Air® as the long jump for Dogs. BIG AIR® is the original and still most popular DOCKDOGS® competition.   Each dog and their “Handler” are a competition team and each team competes head‐to‐head against the other teams to see who can jump the farthest distance. Each team is allotted 60 seconds to get the dog down the 40 foot dock and into the water.  At National events the Judge will evaluate all jumps electronically using digital video stop‐action technology developed by ESPN’s MIS Department. At club events, judges manually judge the dog.  The official  jump distance will be measured from the tail set (where the base of the dog’s tail meets the spine), and when it’s all said and done, the dog that  jumps the farthest takes home the crown!
