    My name is Shannon. I Live in Rock Falls, IL. I have two black Labradors, Jackson, 3 yrs and Lindy Lou, 1.5 yrs. I also have an American Staffordshire Terrier, Lola who is 11 months. Our passion is in dock diving. My two labs compete and Lola is learning. I got involved in dock diving/dog sports when my kids graduated from school and moved out. I've always had dogs, but after the kids were gone, it became more of a passion. I also own a dock diving facility where we train, hold competitions and rent the pool out for practice/dog swimming. I would like to start in agility and competition obedience.

    Welcome !

    Nice pictures ! (y)

    Lindy lou and Jackson look like Frida !!

    I want to try dock diving also, Frida loves to dive from a dock into the lake at our cottage !! I'm wondering if she is to old to start on a real dock diving ramp she is 4 1/2 ?? She loooooves the water and she loooooves diving into the lake , but I know diving into a pool is different and can be a little bit scary for some dogs

    Welcome!
    Your dogs are beautiful and the pictures are amazing.:love:
    It sounds like you and your dogs have a great enjoyable life. Doe I have been wanting to try out dock diving with my dog Piper since she loves the water so much. When I watched a dock diving demonstration with her she went nuts every time a toy was thrown in the water and was desperately trying to get to the pool to get in. I really hope you stick around. Feel free to mention the thread to fellow dog lovers you know:D a lot of our members have gone M.I.A.:(
    P.S I would love to see new pictures here and there that you take they are really great.
