The latest news from Wrigley, our super dock-jumping dog champion, is all good! Wrigley’s owner, Meghan Williams, reports that Wrigley was a contender at the Super Retriever Series in Springfield, Ill., last month.
“It was a fantastic event with lots of great crowds watching all weekend. Wrigley took 2nd place in the Pro finals with a 23’10” jump and only missed first place by a few inches!” she says.
He earned an invitation to the Crown Championship.
“We also got to try out a new discipline for SRS called ‘Super Swim’,” Williams says. “It’s a timed full retrieve swim. We practiced a lot and had a lot of dock time with his vest on.”
Wrigley’s next registered event is the DockDogs World Championships in Dubuque, Iowa, November 15-17, where he will be competing in the Veteran Big Air category. This is a huge deal because it attracts large crowds and world-class jumpers. Just take a look at the DockDogs website photo gallery.
And, there’s plenty of fun videos of dock-jumping dogs on the DockDogs YouTube Channel.
