See dogs run, jump and swim during the DockDogs Dog Jumping Competition, hosted as a main attraction at the Federal Ammunition Hunting Exposition, Aug. 25-27, at the Springfield Scheels location. Open to both first-time jumpers and experienced pros, canine participants can compete in events such as Big Air (long jump), Extreme Vertical (high jump), Speed Retrieve (a timed toy-retrieval event) and Iron Dog (an incorporation of all three jumping and retrieval events). The Big Air Finals will be held on Sunday, Aug. 27, at 4 p.m. Onsite registration and practice sessions begin an hour prior to the start of the first heat each day, and additional practice will be allowed between heats as the schedule permits. Admission to the Federal Ammunition Hunting Exposition and the DockDogs Dog Jumping Competition is free.
