DockDogs®, the touring dog jumping competition, will make a splash at Discovery Green on September 26-28, 2014! This year, Discovery Green will host the South Central Regional Championship of Dock Dogs. Hundreds of dogs, handlers and spectators from Texas, Oklahoma, Lousiana and beyond visit the park for the three-day canine competition and festival. Dogs of every shape and size compete for the grand prize in diverse jumping challenges including the high-jump and long-jump off a 20-foot dock into a 40-foot pool of water on the Jones Lawn.
