Smoky Mountain Dock Dogs hosted a special class for man's best friend in honor of National Puppy Day on Saturday.
The class taught new puppies how to jump into the water and save their favorite toy at Wild Wings Cafe in Farragut.
Beginners and several experts showed off their jumping and swimming skills.
President of Smoky Mountain Dock Dogs Trent Steele said any dog can do it, but there's a couple things owners need to keep in mind.
"Number one: they have to love water. If they don't love water, your dog won't do it. Number two: they have to have that toy drive to go after that favorite toy that they always loved. And number three: you have to have fun with your dog too," said Steele.
Eventually, after some practice, several of the dogs could even participate in jump competitions.
