Arizona Dockdogs - the Games!

Extreme Vertical

Extreme Vertical (usually referred to as EV) is commonly referred to the high jump of the canine water sports and was first introduced in 2005 as a competitive game. A specialized ‘EV Rig’ is used to suspend a foam bumper 8’ out from the edge of the dock, and at a minimum of 4’ 6” high. In competition, dogs may begin at any height, but must make a successful ‘grab’ (given 2 attempts) in order to continue to the next height. The bumper is gradually raised by 2” increments, until finally there is only one dog remaining.

The Divisions:

  • Cadet 4.6" - 5.10"
  • Top Gun 6.0" - 6.10"
  • High Flyer 7.0" - higher
