On May 14th & 15th the Humane Society of Richland County will be holding it's first ever dock jumping fundraiser at the Richland County Fairgrounds in Mansfield, OH. The event titled Woof Stock 2011 is based around a dock jumping competition. Ohio Air Dogs, a UKC licensed dock diving club located in Brunswick, OH, will be the organization operating the event and will be bringing their own pool and dock. For those of you new to the sport, dock jumping is when a dog jumps off of a 40-foot long dock into a 29,000-gallon swimming pool. The length of jump, which is generally 20-30 feet for an Ohio Air Dog, is measured to see which dog went the farthest. In addition to dock jumping, disc, or canine frisbee, and agility are among the many other activities to experience at Woof Stock. Participants can register for each event at the links listed below. All dogs are welcome to compete in these events. A pet parade will kick off the event on Saturday morning at 9:30am. Food, vendors and rescue groups will be in attendance and a doggie bathing suit contest will take place on the dock of the large pool. Event admission fees are $8 per adult and $6 per child. Children 4 and under are free and dogs are free too. Attendees who do not wish to compete in the different events can give it a try in between the scheduled event times with the help of Ohio Air Dogs. The cost to try an event is 5 tickets for disc and agility and 10 tickets for dock jumping. Tickets will be sold at the event and are $1 per ticket or $5 for 6 tickets. You can contact the Humane Society  for a complete schedule of events.
