2014 Coastal Canine - Dock Diving: Jump into Summer
Rhonna and Mark Dias are the owners of Doggone Dirty Dog Sports in Hollister. A few years ago, after their kids had grown and left home, the Diases decided to have more children, only this time they would be of the furry variety. Rhonna wanted dogs that she could have fun with on a daily basis. She researched all the different dog sports and thought dock diving sounded like something she, her husband, and their dogs could all enjoy together.
