Welcome to Green Mountain Dockdogs!

DockDogs comes to Vermont.  DockDogs is "the World's Premier Canine Aquatics Competition where you can have the most fun with your dogs!"

DockDogs events are designed to be fun for families and their dogs.  There is competition, awards, national rankings and the works for folks that want to see how their dogs compete against other dogs of similar ability.  And many folks just attend events to watch or to jump their dogs for the fun of it
