Dogs of all sizes and breeds can compete solo, tandem with another dog or with a human. The sport is quite safe for dogs wearing life vests who are love the water and cleared by their vets for the physical sport.

Here are some of the celebrities of the sport, whose skill and cuteness have won them awards, movie appearances and plenty of Instagram followers.
