The Dog Pool

The pool and dock are regulation sized and besides holding classes we are a NADD facility so we also host tournaments!

NADD (North Amerian Diving Dogs)

NADD is the sanctioning body we play under for dock jumping.  


If you aren't familiar with NADD check out their website. (Click on their logo) 



To register your dog to compete in NADD events go here: NADD



 To enter you must obtain a NADD number for your dog.  Then through the “portal” you will have under your dog’s name you can search for trials to enter. Go to www.northamericadivingdogs.com to do so.


Should you need a hotel for the competition we have compiled a list of local hotels and RV grounds here.


Swimming Lessons

This lesson is for dogs to learn to swim.


Most dogs will swim but some will only swim for survival.  In this class we hope to help your dog enjoy swimming so he will want to do it for fun.


This is not a dock jumping class.  This class is to help your dog gain confidence in the water and hopefully retrieving a toy in the water which is great exercise for any dog.  If you want your dog to eventually learn to jump off the dog but he doesn't swim yet you must take this class first. Not all dogs take to swimming in a pool right off the bat.  You may have to give your dog several sessions before moving on to jumping.  


$40 1/2 hour (1 dog)

$60 hour (up to 2 dogs)
