Patton places at the Premier
 
FiancÚ and I camped out at the UKC Premier this weekend and had a blast!

I am happy to say that Patton is now a dock diver just like his brother and daddy!



He had two competitions after learning to jump the night before, and he made it to finals in his division, where he placed 1st with a jump of 9' 4"! Not bad for a newb and a 7 month old, at that! We got a neat win picture taken together that I am hoping to upload later.

He also rocked the Disc Dog field and came away with a bronze medal in Throw and Go competition - beating his "big brother" Jinks and Willy!

Very impressed with him this weekend. Got to see his brother Legend and dad Nikon while we were there and we all had a great time jumping together. He was non-reactive with all of the dogs around, crated decently under a tent with 20 or so other dogs, tugged efficiently EVERYWHERE, played Frisbee off leash just fine while surrounded by other dogs, and met a ton of people and kids, too. He's a pretty awesome pup to have around and work with!

I've always been interested in the dock diving event....the dogs have to simply enjoy the heck out of it.

Good job on getting Patton indoctrinated.

Question for you....have you ever seen a handler end up going of the end of the dock?

It's a ton of fun. I haven't had a dog that didn't love it, yet!

I have not seen one go off on accident. I almost did ONCE when the turf was very wet and I was in flip flops. (now I jump barefoot)

BUT, there is a "rule" (read:joke) that if you jump your personal best you have to jump in the pool with your dog. One gal over the weekend jumped in TWICE with her dog. :) And I've had trainers go in pools/ponds with the dogs to help them jump/swim as well. But never on accident! :shocked:

All the dogs in our little group of friends did super awesome! Way to go Patton, Nikon, Legend, Jinks, Recon, and Pimg! Thanks for taking photos, Lies!
