Dock diving is a water sport where dogs compete to see who can jump furthest off a dock. Dock diving is a favorite sport of Labradors, but the Catahoula Leopard Dog has been known to excel at dock diving as well. Both the Catahoula and Labrador have webbed feet that make gliding through the water easier and more efficient; this was particularly an asset to the ancestors of the Lab, who were fishermen's dogs.
Competitions for this sport are becoming increasingly paw-pular, especially near large bodies of water (no worries, there are dock diving centers with pools too!). Those interested in competing can check out the North American Diving Dogs webpage for information on events nearby.
