Did you know that professional dog diving is a thing that is real? It is!
While being a Dock Dog is serious business, it’s also seriously adorable. These pups look like they’re flying as high as a frisbee when they jump in for their dive.
It’s pretty epic. We gathered up our favorite Dock Dog moments in 17 magical gifs. (We included a few amateurs for extra LOLZ.)
1. Ok. There is no way this dog is not attached to a wire. Seriously.
2. This dive turned into a little bit of a flop. Still adorable.
3. This Dock Dog clearly has more skills than his brother, who gets left in the dust.
4. Pretty sure this guy’s code name is ‘Jaws.'”
5. You have to work up to the high dive, right?
6. Apparently, you also have to work up to the long jump.
7. Alright, so this dog is 100% flying. I assume he also walks on water.
8. This pup is as aerodynamic as a frisbee.
9. Do you think there was any water left in the pool after that big splash?
10. He’s a little unsure about his first foray into dock diving, but his mom threw a treat in the water. There’s no going back now!
11. Aw. It’s ok little pup. You’ll get to the big leagues some day.
12. Wait a second. Wait one second. This pup’s cheating. There MUST be a springboard there, right?
13. Is this called reverse fishing?
14. This little pup’s nickname is ‘Speedy McSpeedster.’
15. If you’ve ever wondered what a dog cannon ball looks like, this is it.
16. We all wipe out sometimes, pup!
17. It doesn’t matter where this pup places in the competition. His smile is all that matters.
