4) You can bring your dog, as along as they’re kept on a lead at all times and you clear up after them. They can even challenge for the dock diving world record in K9 Aqua Sport’s world famous dock diving pool. The All About Dogs section enables your four-legged friend to try agility, fastest recall, scurry and flyball and Conquest K9.
