Ok, I know this isn't athens related specifically....
Let your dog try Dock Diving with Dixie Dock Dogs (a non-profit organization). Saturday, April 24th, 2010, 10am-3pm @ Big Catch Lakeside Grill, Lake Oconee, Eatonton, Ga. It’s the Big Catch & Fetch Fun Jump and a special day for “newbies” to bring their dogs and learn about dock diving. There is a $5 per team on-site registration fee (one handler + one dog = 1 Team). Junior handlers (ages 7 through 18) are very welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult. This sport is NOT breed specific, but your dog must be at least 6 months old to participate. We’ll have coaches on duty to assist you and your dog. Important: All dogs must be crated or on a 4 foot lead (longer leads & retractable leads are not allowed for safety purposes).
For more information on what to bring and other info, contact Nancy Akin ChocolateDawg@DixieDockDogs.com or visit our web site Dixie Dock Dogs Events. We’re looking forward to meeting your and your best friend at the dock!!! Don’t miss it!!
