DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Dogs soared to new heights this weekend in Dubuque during the 2013 DockDogs World Championship.

Dubuque has played host to several DockDogs in the past. But this is the second year the DockDogs World Championships have been held at the Five Flags Center in Dubuque.

This year, more than 300 dogs are set to compete in the 2013 DockDogs World Championship. The DockDogs World Championship is a canine aquatics competition, where dogs participate in different competitions like long jump and high jump.

The competition is open to all dogs both big and small, even if they have no professional training. Dogs are required to be at least six months old to participate.

Grant Reeves is the CEO of DockDogs Worldwide.

"DockDogs is a zero discrimination program which is really cool because when you come down here you are going to see all types of breeds and mixes," Reeves said. "We really have any dog from anywhere, any size as long as they are six months or older."

The 2013 DockDogs World Championship will continue at the Five Flags Center in Dubuque until 5 p.m. Sunday.
