The Dog Pool

The pool and dock are regulation sized and besides holding classes we also host tournaments where anyone can compete. 

International Dog Sports is the sanctioning body we use for our dock jumping tournaments. 


If you aren't familiar with IDS you can go to their Website.


For more information about our tournaments including rules and dates of competition: Register for our dock jumping event here.


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



Our cancellation policy is at the bottom of the page. Please scroll down if interested. 

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.  


$45 1/2 hour (1 dog)

$60 hour (up to 2 dogs)

Air Grab Game

It may be called different names for different organizations but it's the same game where the dog runs off the dock to grab a bumper that is suspended in the air 4' over the water that moves out a foot after each successful grab.  This class is for beginners to dogs practicing for competition.


Lessons 1 hr. $60 (up to 2 dogs)

Speed swimming games

This is a speed swimming game.  In one game the dog will jump off the dog, swim to 37’ grab the toy off of the arm it is hanging from and swim back to the ramp. (They don’t need to bring the toy back they just have to take it off the arm.) They will be timed on their swim.  


Another speed swimming game is called Velocity and you just have to throw the bumper 36' or 29' for lap dogs, and have your dog jump and swim out to the bumper and pick it up.
