We are proud to have seven dogs representing Sit Means Sit at the 2010 Stihl Dogs & Logs DockDocks World Championships held at the 2010 Oregon State Fair!
This is an invitation only competition where the best of the best in DockDogs flock to compete head-to-head for the coveted ‘World Champion” title. This year’s championships will see four different competitions: Big Air (a long jump competition); Speed Retrieve (a timed race down the dock and pool); Extreme Vertical (a high-jump competition); and Iron Dog (a three-tiered, points based competition combining Big Air, Speed Retrieve and Extreme Vertical).
The top dogs from around the world have gathered in Salem, Oregon. Dogs of all sizes, shapes and colors are represented. Defending world champions have returned to stave off the competition and return home with another world championship title. Up and coming challengers are all vying for a piece of the podium.
Sit Means Sit is proud to be represented by 7 of the 55 invite-only competitors.
