• Competition Dog Travels through Hopewell and Prince George County, Virginia

    Fly Ball and Dock Diving for Dogs

    We had a couple stop at the Hopewell/Prince George Visitor Welcome Center in the summer on their way to a Fly Ball and Dock Diving competition for their dog.

    Not familiar with these sports? Neither were we!

    And this video of Dock Diving: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlIqRGuXrjw

    I bet we have some local dogs who have these hidden talents! We definitely have plenty of docks on the Appomattox River and James River for them to practice on! Send us a picture of your dog Dock Diving into one of our rivers and we may feature it on display at the Hopewell/Prince George Visitor Welcome Center!

    Email your photo to Tourism@hpgchamber.org, bonus points if you send a video, too!
