Speed Retrieve® is a "timed event". At the far end of the pool a bumper toy is suspended 2" above the water with a starting indicator above it. The dog is then placed at the 20' white mark on the dock; when the light turns green the handler releases the dog. The time clock stops ticking when the dog has pulled the toy from the Speed Retrieve® bracket.
Extreme Vertical® is a "high jump" for dogs. The dog starts off at the 20' mark on the dock & jumps up to a bumper toy extended out 8' from the end of the dock over the water. The starting height for Extreme Vertical® is 4'6" and goes up in 2" increments as competition progresses.
Big Air® is a "long jump for dogs". The Dog, which may be placed anywhere on to the 40' dock, runs, & jumps into the water after a throw toy. The distance is judged from the end of the dock to where the tail set of the dog breaks the water's surface.
