JEDI is a my 2 year old deaf border collie. He knows many tricks and competes in different dog sports, but his passion is dock diving. JEDI can do anything a hearing dog can do. JEDI started dock diving at the age of 7 months with distance jumping and got his first title at his first competition.
This is JEDI’s 3rd year competing in North America Diving Dogs (NADD). He has now started competing in distance jumping, air retrieve, and the new sport of hydrodash.
In JEDI’s second year he made it all the way to the national championships in Orlando, Florida.
This year he has qualified again to compete in a Regional’s Event in all three dock diving disciplines. JEDI loves this sport and has gained many titles and ribbons in his short career.
JEDI’s personal best in distance is 24 feet and 4 inches which is considered an Elite jump. Dock diving is an addicting and fun sport that is great for deaf dogs to do and be competitive in.
