This is Cello’s second year in a row competing in Delmarva DockDogs “Jumping Into Jersey” event at the Ocean County Gunning and Decoy Festival, held annually at Tuckerton Seaport in Tuckerton, NJ.
Unfortunately the DockDogs website is under construction, so I cannot post her exact results, but Cello did win several Big Air medals during this event, and even made the Big Air Finals, finishing third in the Elite (23′ to 24′ 1″ rage) Finals Division, earning a cash prize, bit ribbon, and a gift bag!

Novice: 0’1″ – 9’11”
Junior: 10’0″ – 14’11”
Senior: 15’0″ – 19’11”
Master: 20’0″ – 22’11”
Elite: 23’0″ – 24’11”

Cello also tried Extreme Vertical (high jump) for the first time! is a high jump contest. Dogs are released by their handlers, and launch upward to knock down a bumper, which is suspended over the water eight feet out from the end of the dock. The current world record is 8′ 11″ . Cello did really well for her first time, and placed 5th in the Cadet Division Finals, earning a big pretty ribbon!
Extreme Vertical Divisions:
Cadet: Up to 5’11”
Top Gun: 6’0″ to 6’11”
High Flyer: 7’0″ and above
