Chesapeake DockDogs (CDD),
This is the local chapter of the premier canine aquatics competition, manages Dock Dog competitions at one of Maggie’s winery four ponds.
The CDD group built a regulation 40-foot dock for their jumping competitions.
If your dog is looking to learn dock jumping, try the pond just below the Cave, which features a small dock.
Do you think your dog could be a contender at competitions? Checkwww.ChesapeakeDockDogs.com for more information or visit their Facebook page. Maggie Malick Wine Caves is a proud sponsor of DockDogs events, but we are not affiliated. Chesapeake DockDogs is happy to can answer all your dog competition questions.
Both winery dogs, Jet and Moxie, are lab rescues. That’s why we are so grateful that our 2019 LabFest visitors helped us raise nearly $1,100 for LabRescue, from a portion of our winery’s LabFest sales.
Lab Rescue of the LRCP (Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac) is a volunteer, nonprofit organization that rescues, fosters and places homeless, abused, and/or abandoned Labrador Retrievers.
Pond Fest Weekend 2020
Some of the top-ranked dog teams in the world will compete across all levels and disciplines for jumping height and distance at Maggie Malick Wine Caves winery in Purcellville, VA.
Chesapeake DockDogs is the only dock-jumping dog club to have a home dock in a natural setting, against the backdrop of 30 acres of green vineyards. Dock jumping also known as dock diving is a dog sport in which dogs compete in jumping for distance or height from a dock into a body of water. Dock jumping events have been held in the United States since 2000, and has been broadcast on ESPN.
