Geddes (WSYR-TV) -- With the New York Sportsman’s Expo in town, one event is making quite a splash. The Fairgrounds have gone to the dogs – the “Dock Dogs” that is.
It’s a canine aquatic competition to see which dog can jump the farthest and leap the higherst.
NewsChannel 9 talked with some of the dogs’ owners who have their pups in the competition and they tell us it’s hard to decide who has more fun.
"Oh, they have a riot! They love every minute of it, and when we're at home, and our dog Kessie, if I left her, I can leave her in the pool for 10 hours, she'll just swim all day long,” said dog owner Charlie Bochenek.
Dock Dogs is happening at the New York Sportsman expo at the NYS Fairgrounds this weekend. There are several categories, including Big Air, extreme vertical and speed retrieve. Dock Dogs is a great family sport for all ages and all size dogs.
