DURANGO, CO (April 15, 2015) –

Zuke’s® , a Colorado-based manufacturer of natural, wholesome dog treats, has teamed up with DockDogs®, the premier competitive dock jumping performance sport for dogs of any shape, size or breed, to promote, enhance and support the increasingly popular sport of dock diving.  Zuke’s® is sponsoring two 40-foot competition docks at 50 events nationwide as part of their support of the 2015 tour.
