I was shooting Dog Fest 2013 today and one of the events was ultimate air dog. A lot of fun and the dogs sure loved it. People had a hard time getting them to come out of the water! LOL. This was my favorite shot of the day.

Great shot, John.

But I'm intrigued, how did they persuade the dog to "fly"

At first I thought the dog was lying down above the sign!

This is an event in the US? That's fantastic! I never tire of watching my pooch jumping in the lake. He's weird... he takes a running jump and, well, the best way I can think of to describe it is somewhere between a belly flop and a flying squirrel :)

Love the picture - the people in the frame look so serious in contrast to the dog's easy nonchalance.

The dogs would run down the platform and as it got near the end someone would throw a toy in the air and the dog would leap off the platform try to catch it and splash!

Thanks John :)

The brown dog is certainly giving his all! Great photo.
