**********************

Cyndy Douan has been dock jumping competitively since 2009. She won her very first competition in 2009, with her Border Collie, Riff, at the Bele Chere Ultimate Air Dogs Tournament in Asheville, N.C. with a jump of 25'4".

Riff was 9 years old when Cyndy saw him jump his Personal Best of 26' 4".

In 2012, at 10 years old, Cyndy and Riff received 3 Invitations to the DockDogs World Championships where they WON the Legend Big Air Division, and finished 2nd Place in the Veteran Division.

Cyndy is breeder of Knox, owned by Brianna Minshew, who was ranked DockDogs #1 Border Collie in 2012 and who finished #6 in the World in Super Elite Big Air at the 2012  Dockdogs World Championships.

In March of 2013, Cyndy Douan and Rook set the new world record in Ultimate Air Dogs Short Dock Jumping.




Cyndy Douan has the skill and knowledge to coach great dock jumpers! She has proven herself on the dock with her dogs!  She can help you get started with a new dog, or help you coach your diving dog to bigger and better performances! You do not need constant access to regulation dock diving pools in order to be successful, and Cyndy believes that the foundation work and training starts well before you introduce the dock to your dog!
