Sterling Dock-Diving Dog Places 7th In World Competition

Posted: Updated:

Phoenix, a year and a half year-old lab mix from Sterling, recently returned from a dog Olympics of sorts in Atlanta, Georgia, where she competed in dock diving. The Purina Incredible Dog Challenge selected Phoenix, and her owner, Jeff Kuchel, as one of just six American and Canadian teams to compete in the global competition. Kuchel says the whole experience is rewarding.

"When you take a dog, and you basically build it up from a puppy, and bring it to a world competition, and they actually do really, really good, that to me is fulfillment," he said.

Phoenix won a competition earlier this year, but placed 7th with Purina.
