LI-DOG will be there! Bring the whole family including your dog!

For the first time ever, the Village of Port Jefferson will be featuring the high flying action of DockDogs®, the independent governing and sanctioning body for dock jumping and dock diving canine performance sports. Examples of the thrilling aquatic events include:

  • The Big Air® competition features dogs running down a 40’ dock and diving into a pool of water after an object, in which they are electronically judged for the length of their jump.
  • The Extreme Vertical® competition is a “High Jump” for the dogs as they each lunge to snag a “bumper” suspended in the air.

The competition is open to all pre-registered teams. Teams are made up of one dog and one handler. Your canine must be 6 months or older to be eligible. Canines of any breed, size or shape are welcomed. Not only is the competition open to all types of canines, but also handlers above the age of 7 are welcomed. They even have a Youth Handler class for those who are between the ages of 7-14.

You must pre-register dogs to compete at DockDogs® Port Paws Dog Festival in Port Jefferson. 

In addition to watching the competition, you’ll also find: Canine Vendors, Food Trucks, Fun activities, Music and more!

The Long Island Dog Owners Group will also have a booth set up at the event, so be sure to stop by for information and to say hello!

General admission: $10 per adult. Kids and canines are free!

Proceeds from “Port Paws” Dog Festival will benefit the Port Jefferson Harbor Education & Arts Conservancy.
