You for your interest in the DockDogs Northern Stars!
are the Minnesota Affiliate Club of Worldwide DockDogs® Inc.
are reading this because you have probably seen this sport on ESPN,
the Outdoor Channel,
or been to one of our events and thought, I would like to
get involved, - but how?!
We welcome you to this fun sport that we all enjoy and love
get involved in dock jumping for many reasons, first
and foremost as a way to have fun
with their best friend. Others like the competitiveness of the sport,
while others are enjoying the
friends they are making across the country as they travel.
Events and Club Affiliate Events
offers two types of events. Our National Organization hosts events
across the country
in what we call National Events. The ranking and titles
are earned for your dog if you compete in
any of the three disciplines described below. Here in Minnesota,
like other Affiliate Clubs across the
country, we host events referred to as Regional Events.
Separate rankings and titles are offered
to dogs that compete in these types of events. Our club Big Air
& Speed Retrieve are manually judged
by certified DockDogs judges. For a complete detailed explanation
of all the rules and policies, visit
& Policies on the DockDogs® website.
DockDog team consists of one handler and their dog. Handlers need
to be at least seven years old.
Any dog, of any breed over 6 months old can try their "paw"
at this sport.
