The first nationally sanctioned dock jumping event is being held in Colorado Springs this weekend. In the sport of dock jumping, a dog jumps into the water of a pool while trying to catch a toy thrown by their handler. The jump is measured to determine the winner. Kristen Byne throws a toy off the dock for her dog, Indiana, during the competition. Dock Peak Performance K9 Sports is holding the Splash Dogs' Pikes Peak Jump at 4295 Northpark Drive. It's free to watch and the fee for dogs to compete is $20 per event. ONLINE PHOTO GALLERY AND VIDEO (The Gazette/Jerilee Bennett)
