The competitors in Dock Dogs will be literally leaping for joy (and prize-winning bragging rights) for the fifth year in Houston. The fun of this event is seeing all the different breeds — from steely-eyed trained jumpers to those mutts who need a little, um, extra push — go airborne after a fetch toy. The competition will feature categories such as Big Air, Extreme Vertical, Speed Retrieve and the massive Iron Dog, which combines all three. Experience a full weekend of pooch power. 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Discovery Green, 1500 McKinney. For information, call 330-241-4975 or visit www.dockdogs.com.
