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)

2019 Dates:


Our qualifier is next: 

Splashing in September: 9/27/19 - 9/29/19 


 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.

Beginner Dock Jumping Classes

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: 9/11, 9/21, 9/25, )

Hydro Dash 

Hydro Dash is a new game that is currently in “Fun Run” status in that in 2019 any splashes will not count toward a title. 


This game is meant for dogs who don’t jump off the dock.  (Although if your dog has competed in dock jumping they will have to jump for this game.) It is a speed swimming game.  The dogs must 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.  


To learn this new sport sign up for class and join us for the fun!
