Diving Dock Dogs and a Tall Ship at the Sailing Seaway Clayton Festival

Rate: 0 Flag

There have been lots of festivals this season with tall ships, but how many can boast dock diving dogs?  Last October, we posted about the new and growing sport of dock dogs, where dogs competing on how far they can jump into the water. This weekend’s Sailing Seaway Clayton festival in Clayton, New York will feature a visit by the STV Fair Jeanne, but will also include a Seaway Splash dock dog competition.  Dogs will be able to compete in three events – “Extreme Vertical,” and  ”Speed Retrieve.”  The Seaway Splash events will be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Click here for a detailed schedule.   On Thursday at 6PM there will be a boat parade to escort the STV Fair Jeanne into port.  The  Fair Jeanne will also be open for tours on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Clayton, New York is a riverfront village on the St. Lawrence River in the Thousand Islands region. It is also home to the Antique Boat Museum.
