VAIL, Colorado ” Teva Mountain Games, the largest outdoor adventure sports festival in the world, announced today that in partnership with DockDogs they will increase the dog competition from one to three events. The competitions are open to all dogs and will take place June 5 through June 8.

From the most experienced competitors to the greenest first-timers, all dogs are invited to take part in this head-to-head challenge in any or all of the three events: Big Air Wave, Extreme Vertical and Speed Retrieve.

“We are extremely excited to bring in the energy and professionalism of DockDogs to our dog competitions. DockDogs has an outstanding reputation, and we are honored to be working with them to step up this event. Dogs are so important to mountain culture. I think the mountain-town dogs will give the professional circuit dogs a run for their money,” said Joel Heath of Untraditional Marketing, the owner and operator of the Teva Mountain Games.

DockDogs is the independent governing and sanctioning body for the regional, national, and international dock jumping performance sport for dogs. DockDogs establishes the rules and standards of the sport, tracks and records results, and promotes the growth of its athletes, teams events, spectators, and sponsors. Visit for more information.
