Upcoming Event: DockDogs Competition at the Cape Coral Regatta in Cape Coral, Fla.

If you’re near Cape Coral, Fla., this is an event you don’t want to miss! SunCoast DockDogs and the Cape Coral Cardboard Boat Regatta are teaming up to bring you an event that will make a splash (literally)!

When: Friday to Sunday, April 15-17 (Click here for specific event dates and times)

Where: Four Freedoms Park in Cape Coral, Fla.

What: Dogs will be jumping, flying, splashing and swimming all weekend! This event is open to any dog regardless of breed, shape or size. Dogs participate in the sport of jumping off docks to fetch toys, and DockDogs have created their own set of rules for judging the competition.

There are three different contests:

  • Big Air: The long jump equivalent for canines. Dogs will jump off the end of a 40-foot dock into a 28,000-gallon pool to retrieve a floatable object.
  • Extreme Vertical: The high jump contest where participants attempt to knock down a bumper suspended over the water.
  • Speed Retrieve: Dogs are split into team and each individual runs, jumps, swims, and retrieves an object 58 ft. from the starting block.

Precise will be there along with Cape Dog Bakery! For more information about the event and competition, visit the SunCoast DockDogs and Cape Coral Regatta web sites. We can’t wait to see you for this fun-filled day!

Recap of the Meet The Great Dane Lady Luncheon

You may recall seeing our post about our Meet The Great Dane Lady Luncheon in Ocala, Fla. Local breeders met with Linda Arndt, The Great Dane Lady, and Linda Greeson, of Sweet Spot English Mastiffs, for an informal discussion about breeding practices.

The Great Dane Lady, Linda Arndt, shares her thoughts on the experience:

“It was a great afternoon talking about the trials and tribulation of being a responsible dog breeder and exhibitor, and the importance of improving and preserving the breeds we love. I was honored to be able to spend an afternoon with one of the best Mastiff breeders in the country, Linda Greeson, and her fellow breeders to share information and experiences from the Ocala, Fla. area.

We shared some great stories and discussed the roll that quality nutrition plays in developing healthy, sound and long lived dogs. Without a food like the Precise Holistic Complete line up, we will not have the soundness or wellness needed in our stock to be successful in the whelping box or the show ring”

We had a great turn out! Thanks to everyone who joined us, and we’ll do it again very soon!
