North Fork Dock Diving Pet Expo Planned

Published

on

(Press Release) Peconic, NY – Greenport Harbor Brewing Co.’s location in Peconic, NY, will be transformed into a dog dock diving pet expo extravaganza on Saturday and Sunday, May 20 and 21. Harbor Pet and Greenport Harbor Brewing Co. have joined forces to bring DockDogs to the North Fork by co-hosting the First Annual North Fork Dock Diving Pet Expo and Fundraiser Event. DockDogs is the largest and most diversified presenter of dock diving Dog Performance Sports in the world. 

Blue Buffalo is the presenting sponsor of the event. The event will benefit three different local organizations: the North Fork Welfare Animal League (NFWAL), of Southold, NY; Burton Potter Post (division of American Legion); and Canine Companions for Independence (CCI).

In addition to the high-flying splashing action that dogs and their owners can participate in, there will be pet vendors to check out, pet experts to learn from and speak to and brews to enjoy. Along with local and national vendors such as Weruva pet food and Greenport Jerky Co., there will be local dog trainers and adoptable dogs from NFWAL. Pet parents can also learn about becoming a puppy raiser with CCI.

Spectators can purchase food and brews from the Greenport Brewing Harbor during the event. The event is an excellent way to spend a weekend on the North Fork of Long Island with your dog, while also helping raise funds and awareness for three different charitable organizations that help the surrounding community.

Champion Dock Diving dogs from Long Island like Tango Munch Pit Bull, as well as those from the tri-state area, will be flying through the air and making big waves during this event. Tango averages a 22-foot jump into the pool and travels the country to compete at many DockDog events. His owner Chris Geymayr of West Babylon, NY, said, “This will be Tango’s second full season of competition and he’s a 7-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier we rescued as a small puppy. At the first DockDogs event we brought Tango to, he jumped 15 feet on his first jump; we knew he had something special! He is a pro athlete who competes at the highest level all over the country now.”

Dog owners who are interested in trying this aquatic dog sport are encouraged to come and let their dogs try it out as well. Dogs that love to swim and have high toy drive often take to it very quickly.

Dog parents who want to have their dogs compete, or try this sport for the first time, can register in advance at www.dockdogs.com or on site the day of the event. Fees to try out or compete start at $27 per team (dog and handler) for each competition.

This pet friendly event is free for spectators.
