Macho Diving Dog is the USA National champion dock Diver !! Macho is a Jack Russell Terrier. At 8 weeks old Macho travel by plane from Virginia to San Diego where he now calls home. From a puppy Macho loved the water and is obsessed with tennis balls. This made the perfect combination for dock diving. Macho would spend hours every day swimming and retrieving his tennis ball in the family pool,..but boredom gave in and Macho started launching himself off the edge of the pool to chase the ball.
A friend suggested entering Macho into a dock diving competition. Where a dog runs down a dock and jumps into a pool that is about 40 feet long and 4 feet deep. Often, the handler throws a toy, ball or retrieving dummy into the air to encourage the dog to jump. The dock is covered in artificial turf, carpet, or a rubber mat for better traction and safety for the competitors. The handler may use any amount of the dock and they may start their dog from any point on the dock when competing. Macho took to it immediately.
Macho is now making a splash around the country in dock diving competitions across America. Macho also surfs, paddle boards, rides Harley Davidson, loves off roading and is a great varmint hunter. Macho was a featured dog on the float Champion Dogs in San Diego. Macho has his own cartoon character. Macho has been photographed with celebrities such as Bret Michaels.
Macho will continue to travel across America and work hard in 2016 to defend his National Dock Diving title.
