“Whatever the game, we’ll play!” is a phrase that surely can be applied to a Pointer. The breed’s high drive and desire to please make them eager participants in a broad array of activities. Some activities are AKC titling events, while others fall under the rules of other governing bodies.
The most important thing to remember is that your Pointer wants to make you happy. So any activity that provides positive reinforcement for doing your bidding is likely to be a great fit for your pup! Pointers actively participate in barn hunt, lure coursing, dock diving, and more.
If your dog loves the water and loves to retrieve, then the fun sport of Dock Diving should be a natural. The AKC now recognizes titles of the new North America Diving Dogs (NADD) organization. Now you can also add a dock jumping title to your dog’s AKC records.
