STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -- More than 150 dogs made a splash at Stone Mountain Park on Friday.

The canines are competing for a chance to qualify for the "Dock Dogs" World Championship in November.

The dogs run down a platform and leap into the 40 foot pool. They are judged on distance, height, and speed.

The event will continue through Sunday on Memorial Lawn.
