The Waterfowl Festival is proud to partner with the Delmarva Dock Dogs® to present one of the most popular events at the Festival. The DockDogs® competition returns to Idlewild Park where the stands fill quickly to watch dog after dog race down a dock to splash into a pool of water. The competition is to see which can remain airborne the farthest or highest, depending on which event is being contended.
The event is hosted by the Delmarva DockDogs® and is a nationally sanctioned competition. Any and all breeds are eligible to participate. While registration for contenders is mainly done online in advance, there generally are a few spaces reserved for those wishing to enter their dogs on the day of the event. Entry fees apply.
A Festival ticket is required to attend the DockDogs® competition.
