This event is one of our annual favorites – however, this year, it was a bit more exciting (and stressful!) as it was our very last chance to increase Lager’s overall Big Air average in hopes to get him qualified to earn an invitation to the DockDogs World Championship held this November.
Shipps Corner does a great job of decorating the dock for Halloween!

This event was loads of fun – and one we will never forget – as it was this event (only the SECOND National event Lager has attended) where Lager pushed his Big Air Average high enough to earn a Big Air World Championship invite in the Senior Division! Way to go, Lager!
At the DockDogs Mid Atlantic Regional event held at Shipps Corner, in Virginia Beach, Hooch won first place in his division finals to earn an invitation to compete at the World Championships this November! Read the details about this event HERE!
Cello participated in her first Halloween-themed dock diving event, held at Shipps Corner in Virginia Beach, Va. Shipps Corner is a DockDogs sanctioned facility, which means Cello’s performance counted toward her National ranking, rather than her club-level ranking.
Cello in action:
Cello in Slo-Mo:
Shipps Corner had the dock decorated for Halloween!
Hooch participated in the Halloween Costume Contest, dressed as Superman
I was a chilly day, but Shipps Corner had a bonfire going:
Cello stayed warm with her Trover coat and covered crate:
Hooch stayed warm all wrapped up with his Mommy:
Hooch also stole his daddy’s chair and curled up while waiting for Cello to jump!
Cello did well (unfortunately the new DockDogs website is not completed, so I can’t reach the exact results – but will update them at a later time).
Overall, we had a great time, and this event was well-run, with a very relaxed and fun atmosphere!
