Several dogs were not afraid to get wet and make a big splash this weekend during a canine aquatics competition.
Sam Russell’s Pet Provisions in Elizabethtown was the site of Sam Russell’s Pool House Splash. The event was sanctioned by Kentucky DockDogs, the state chapter of DockDogs, which organizes canine aquatic competitions.
Dogs participated in a variety of activities, including jumping off a 40-foot dock into a 28,000-gallon pool to retrieve floatable objects, along with jumping and swimming contests. As several canines jumped into the large pool, owners and audience members cheered them on. Dogs and their owners were able to win cash, ribbons and other prizes.
