The pool and dock are regulation sized and besides holding classes we are a NADD facility so we also host tournaments!
THE MARCH AND APRIL NADD DOCK JUMPING TOURNAMENTS HAVE BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19. IF YOU WERE REGISTERED FOR THE EVENT YOU SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED AN EMAIL. THE NEW DATE FOR THESE EVENTS ARE TO BE DETERMINED.
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 read about qualifications for the 2020 nationals in Orlando go here: NADD Nationals
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.northamericandivingdogs.com to do so.
If you aren’t entered but you would like to try your dog on the dock, we will allow try-its between the official splashes. $10 for two 3 minute sessions on the dock provided there is time.
Should you need a hotel for the competition we have compiled a list of local hotels and RV grounds here.
Private lessons: If you are interested in teaching your dog to swim. This class is for your dog to learn how to swim only. This is not a dock jumping class. This class is a prerequisite to entering a dock jumping class unless your dog can demonstrate confident swimming and retrieving in the pool.
$35 1/2 hour,
Does your dog love swimming? Does he love to retrieve toys out of the water? We offer beginner dock jumping classes to help you get started in this fun and challenging sport!
This class will be for beginning dock jumpers to learn about going off the dock and gaining confidence, if needed, to do so.
When group beginner classes are available they will be on Saturdays or Sundays 10-12pm. Private lessons can be whenever you prefer.
The class of 6 dogs is 90 minutes for $30. (if there are less than 6 dogs the class may run shorter due to the physical exertion dock jumping requires)
(Scheduled classes: 11/16, 11/30, 12/7, 12/21)

Private lessons available $50/hour (up to 2 dogs from the same family/house)

This is a speed swimming game. The dogs 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.
