@San She is 11 months old. I looked it up but it does not look like the cases I saw, and I didn't see anything about it being found in Australian Shepherds.
@Sabina88 She actually is great about the ointment. Just holds still and let me do it. Now the benedryl on the other hand. She refused to take it in peanut butter so I tried the method of putting it in the back of her mouth. Well her reaction to having my fingers that far back was to chomp down hard on my hand. I have a few puncture marks on my hand now. I could tell it was a involuntary response, when I gasped in pain she seemed like she was surprised herself and offered up appeasing behaviors. So we are working on having my hands in her mouth without her clamping down. x_x

These would be her second and third events! We did her first one last month and she LOVED it. She did great too, her record right now is 14'11". Which is a lot farther than I expected! She jumps farther than her dad! She swims better than him too. Haha. It was funny telling people there that Dunkin's 11 month old daughter was beating him.

I'm jeleouse, Sawyer absolutely hated having the ointment put in his eye. I had to get the eye drops instead so I could get the medicine in his eye faster and from more of a distance. Lets just say eyedrops were not a fun event for either of us.

Have you tried wrapping the benedryl in sandwich meat, or slide it in a cube of cheese or meat (they also make pill pockets)? If you use just enough meat to wrap around the pill and keep in small, she might be more likely to just swallow it rather then chew. That way to you don't have to stick your hand so far down into her mouth.

That's awesome, go Aayla :-) Are you going to do this just for fun with her or get more into the competition side of it? I would love to dock diving with one of my guys, but neither of them are fans of water sigh lol.

I did a lot of handling training with her as a little puppy. I was also a dog groomer so she is used to being poked and prodded. She will take the blow dryer or water straight to the face without avoiding it. Plus she thinks almost all handling exercises are a game. (She knows she gets a reward for holding still). She is actually excited when I pull out her medicine. (weirdo)

She is a really careful chewer. So she found it in the meat, she gets the runs with cheese and she doesn't really like treats so she probably would pick away at the pill pocket and not eat it. So we are left shoving it down her throat. Day two and she is much much better with it. No chomping down after a few warm up 'open your mouth and let me touch your tongue' exercises lol. Last night I was able to hide it in her ground raw mixture though.

The thing about dock diving is that there isn't tons to it. You can try and increase height and a bit of your technique but in the end the dog is only going to jump as far as it is going to jump. I'm a very competitive person, and I want to do competitive sports with her. Yet this is one of those things that is just fun. Plus I don't think she will ever get in the national level and be hitting the high 20s. I like the no pressure, just letting the dogs do what they can do. As long as Aayla loves it we will continue to do it. We will see how far she goes!
