Sydney Mackey and Spitfire, her 4-year-old Whippet, emerged as celebrities on the dock dog circuit last year as they not only racked up several wins in regional competitions but also won the Big Air competition at the 2016 Dock Dogs World Championships.
To make the accomplishment more impressive, the pair didn’t even compete in Dog Dog competitions until last July, just a few months before they won the world championship.
As you’ll see in this story from KING 5, Sydney and Spitfire have a fantastic relationship.
Currently the duo is ranked third in the world in the Big Air category for horizontal jumping. They will defend their title at the 2017 Dock Dog World Championships this October in Knoxville, TN.
Good luck Sydney and Spitfire!
