DockDogs jumping competition returns to Farragut, last chance to make world championship

The dog days of summer are finally here, and if you’re looking for a fun way to cool off amid the heat, Dog Daze IV at Village Green is returning to Farragut. 

The three-day canine aquatics competition will feature 150 furry, four-legged athletes competing in three events: Big Air, Extreme Vertical and Speed Retrieve.

The festival will be held in the Village Green Shopping Center parking lot from Friday, Aug. 14, to Sunday, Aug. 16.

A top-dog competition

DockDogs competitions draw crowds from around the world and are a growing sport. This year’s Farragut competition is no exception. 

In 2019, only 30 competitors jumped – a year later, there are five times as many dogs entered. Spectators can expect to see more than 400 jumps from the Farragut platform in August. 

This event is one of the last national events in the Southeast, making it popular with out-of-state competitors. More people are also expected to attend because of canceled competitions throughout the year. 

Dog Daze IV is a “Wildcard” competition, so dogs will be able to gain bonus points and the opportunity to go to the world championships in October. 

Furry family fun

Shop Farragut, Town of Farragut, Smoky Mountain Dock Dogs and Ricki’s Pet Depot are hosting the weekend of free festivities. 

The fun starts on Friday afternoon when local dogs will have the chance to try dock diving during the Pooch Plunge.

On Saturday, the real competition begins.

The Speed Retrieve, which measures how quickly a dog can swim in a 40-foot long pool, is the first event of the day. It’s followed by The Big Air, which measures jump distance. The last event is the Extreme Vertical which measures how high a dog can jump.
