The Allure of Dock Diving, plus European Dog Show Day 3
DFR Blogger Kayla Bertagnolli grew up in the dog world. She’s part of a famed Beagle kennel and was a dedicated junior handler and assistant. Despite her youth, she thought she’d seen just about everything when it came to dogs. That is, until last year when she was introduced to dogs jumping off the end of a dock into a huge pool of water – for fun and ribbons. Today she shares just what it was that created her fixation on the sport.

Our intrepid European reporter Karl Donvil is back home in Belgium, and after a bit of recovery time and an important FCI meeting, was able to finish up his final article on the European Dog Show which took place last weekend in Geneva, Switzerland. Check out his take on day 3 of the show and see his great action shots of the three BIS winners, including one dog co-owned by an American.

Each week we ask readers to share their opinions on a topic of interest to breeders, exhibitors and dog lovers everywhere. Everyone has an opinion, right? Here’s a chance to chime in. Just go to the right-hand column of our home page at, and let us know what you think!

I had the impression that there was much more room in the halls, but that is logical as only Group VIII has larger dogs and even then they are not that large. Funny that this can make such another impression. more
