Dock Diving

What is Dock Diving?

Dock Diving is a fun, exciting but easy-to-do sport with simple rules: You throw your dog’s favorite toy into a pond/pool while he waits on the dock. On your command, he runs down the dock, flings himself off the end to grabs his toy. The goal? To have fun and see how far your pup can jump!

We work with all shapes, sizes, and breeds including mixed dogs. We can help you learn the sport of dock diving or just teach your dog to swim. We also work with seasoned dogs and handlers that would like to improve their skills. Our teaching methods are positive to give you and your dog(s) a very pleasant and successful experience.

Group Drop-In Lessons
We offer group drop-in lessons on Monday mornings 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM on the below dates.  These lessons are for all dogs that go off the dock with little to no hesitations or instructor recommendations.   Beginner/New to dock diving dogs that do NOT go off the dock need more one on one time, we require private lessons until your dog can go off the dock with little to no hesitation. Class size limited to 8 dogs.  Because we run classes as Drop-In with a limited number of participants you MUST Reserve your spot weekly.  Reserve your spot as soon as you know you can attend, classes fill quickly.
