Blue Buffalo has become the official sponsor of DockDogs, the competitive dock jumping performance sport for dogs of any shape, size or breed.

DockDogs will be competing in over 75 diving exhibitions across the country this year on three 40-foot Blue Buffalo-branded platforms.

“As a company driven by a love for our pets, partnering with DockDogs was a natural choice,” said David Petrie, vice president at Blue Buffalo. “Our Blue Wilderness pet food is built to support dogs of all breeds and backgrounds with healthy appetites for athleticism, like all DockDog stars.”

Competitors run, jump and swim their way to the best in four different disciplines: Big Air, Extreme Vertical, Speed Retrieve and the new Dueling Dogs event, a contest of speed and agility between two dogs vying to retrieve the first and the fastest. The season begins in January and runs through November, culminating with the DockDogs World Championships in Dubuque, Iowa.
