Does anyone's dogs compete or have trained your dog in Dock Dog, Flyball or Agility? I'm really interested in getting my dog into it. I think he would enjoy any one of these sports. He loves water, tennis balls, jumping around,is very obedient, and very easy to train.

Yep, you can see it sometimes on ESPN (DockDogs)
You get your dog to run and jump out as far as possible into a pool of water.
The measurements are done using a camera to measure where the muzzle reaches.
The vertical Leap is related to the dockdogs, but instead of jumping outward, they measure the highest leap straight up.
The object is to get your dog to jump and grab a bar that's hanging from different heights.

Flyball. The dogs race against another team. They run down jumping over 4 hurdles put their paws on a box that releases a tennis ball and they have to run back w/ the tennis ball.
