Rip is from Denmark, ME; he is the best dog on the planet (no bias here!) and has some good solid basic sheepdog skills; loves to swim, play Frisbee, retrieve. He has a good background in Noseworks, and has done some agility; and is a recently retired certified Therapy Dog. Rip is kind and gentle and knows no strangers....only friends.

What is your dog’s dock dog jumping experience (if any)?

A couple years ago we attended a fundraising dock-diving "try it" in Greenfield MA. He wasn't quite brave enough to jump but had no trouble climbing into the pool from the exit ramp and quite enjoyed his swim. Later, his chiropractor gave me heck for even thinking about letting him jump, so he is joining on the chance there may be opportunities for a good ol' boy to come to some member training sessions and just have a chance to go in off the stairs for a couple retrieves and cheer on his baby sister as she learns to jump!
