Canine Camp Getaway |
An inveterate swimmer, she loves pools of all sizes, and would swim in her water dish if she could. As a competitive dock diver, Lexie earned her first dock diving title in in 2015, and then went on to earn her AKC Dock Master and Dock Elite titles through North America Diving Dogs in 2016, jumping a personal best of 26 feet and earning a much-coveted invitation to AKC Nationals. In December of 2017, she attended her first AKC Dock Diving Nationals in Orlando where she won first place, earning the title of NADD 2017 National Champion in the Veteran Class Master Division. In 2018, she added a Dock Master Excellent title to her repertoire, and shortly thereafter, became a two-time National Champion when she took top honors again in the 2018 NADD/AKC National Championships in the Veteran Class Master Division with a jump of 23’6″. At age 12-1/2, she is still jumping strong, and believes water dogs have more fun! She also believes the dog-friendly pool is the very best part of Canine Camp Getaway (though she highly recommends lure coursing as well!).
When she’s not performing hostess duties at Canine Camp Getaway of NY, she is excessively fond of balls, long walks, Croc boots, stealing her sister Kaylee’s toys, games of chase, stuffed toys and anything else that involves having fun with dogs, cats, people, water, or her own tail. She is excited to be helping to plan the 2022 Getaways and is looking forward to meeting, greeting and swimming with both new and returning dog friends.
She earned her Dock Elite title with North America Diving Dogs in her first season with a personal best of 26 feet, and won first place at her first-ever Regionals. Most recently, she was asked to perform with The Canine Stars traveling stunt dog show where she took the dock by storm, winning fans with her dare devil high jumps and joyful post-show kisses to all the kids who came to see her and her canine co-stars.
She is excited to be meeting and greeting new friends at the 2022 camps!
