Tom Dropik and his two dogs traveled from Minnesota to compete in this event. The dogs competed in several different categories, including the longest dive length and height.

Scott Templeton, owner of the Tin Woof Inn, says that this the first event for them this year and they’re happy to see all the dogs and their owners. In order to comply with CDC suggested guidelines, the Tin Woof Inn has limited how many spectators will be allowed in the area.
