Competition Format

Long distance jumping is the main feature of Ultimate Air Dog events. It is showcased in different rounds called “Splashes” that culminate at the end of the event with the Divisional Finals. Dogs run down a dock and fly into a pool, with the distance judged from the end of the dock to the base of the dog’s tail. Each competitor gets two jumps per Splash, with the bigger of the two jumps counting as their score.  Scores are sorted into divisions (according to the distance) after the dogs have jumped.

Novice up to 9’11”
Junior 10′ to 14’11”
Senior 15′ to 17’05”
Senior Elite 17’6″ to 19’1″
Master 20′ to 22’5″
Ultimate 22’6″ and up!


Dogs must be at least 6 months old to participate.
