Teaching Your Dog to Love The Sport
Paws favorite season is fast approaching - dock diving! We will be putting up our outdoor pool again this year. The 2020 lineup will include classes, try-it days, advanced jumping, and our annual Dock Dive Event this fall!! See below for more details.
We feel these outdoor activities can be done safely and it has the potential to be good for our mental health too. We will be requiring safe social distancing at all times and will be limiting the number of people who can come at one time.
$30 Open/Experienced Jumpers Only
$40 Try It Day
$120 5 Pack of Open Jumps
$600 Season Pass- Everything you need to jump all year! Unlimited open jumps and unlimited weekend dock rentals (Must Schedule beforehand). *Each season pass is good for 2 family dogs. If you are multi dog household you may need to purchase more than one pass.
Dock Intro Class
This class introduces you and your dog to the dock diving dog tank, working on building confidence and comfort in the tank and retrieving a toy in the water. A strong foundation in swimming and retrieving is essential in a successful dock diving team. We want to ensure you and your dog are introduced to this in a positive training environment.
If you think your dog would be good for this sport here are important pointers to know about your dog:
- You need to have a dog that is motivated to chase or retrieve a ball or toy.
- You need to have a dog that likes to swim and isn't afraid of getting wet.
- It helps to have a toy motivated dog because you cannot throw treats into the pool.
This class will be 4 weeks long where we introduce the dog to the dock, ground work and retrieving a toy in water.
Wear/bring clothing that can get wet to wear around the tank area and towels.
Class sized are limited. $120 for 4 weeks.
2020 Class sessions:
May 14th - June 4th, 5:30 PM. Instructor, Sami Jo and Madison. (Full)
June 1st - June 22nd, 5 PM. Instructor, Sami Jo and Madison.

Open Jump/Experienced Jumpers
These sessions are for the dogs who are confident on the ramp, jumping into the water and retrieving a toy in the tank. As a handler, you will also begin work on perfecting your toss. You and your dog can practice your routine of them jumping off dock. We also will spend some time practicing ground work to get you and your dog's technique better and stronger.
You may sign up for as few or as many classes as you want. Attending every week is not required - as these classes are geared towards whatever you and your dog need to work on most. Class sizes are limited.
Wear clothes to get wet, shoes to wear around the tank area and towels.

Try It Days
Try it days are for any dog at any experience level. This is a great opportunity for dogs and people who never have tried out the sport of dock diving. We will introduce the newbie dogs on the whole sport. This option is awesome for anyone who cannot make it to the classes or just want to find out if their dog is interested in the sport at all. The dock will be open for a certain amount of time on these days and you may come anytime during it and stay for as long. There will be no limit on how many times you want to go up, however we suggest 7 times is a good number!
We strive for Try it Days for the people who want to just come learn more about the sport with their dogs, be around the dock more, or come out to exercise with your dog! This is not a class so there will not be ground work or additional education.
For every class please bring a 6 ft leash, some of your dogs favorite toys, shoes and clothes that can get wet and a towel to use during the class.
$40 to reserve a spot.
May 26th, 5:30 PM.
June 30th, 5:30 PM.
July 28th, 5:30 PM.
We do offer one on one lessons to get your dog jumping in the tank if you and your dog would like a non-class setting and just to do it on your own. This is great for people who want to do it during the warmest part of the day or for dogs who do not do good in a group setting.
$35 for 30 minute session
$70 for 1 hour session
Renting the Tank
The tank is available to be rented for personal use, 1 hour increments. Rental is available to anyone who has a dog that is already jumping- you must schedule beforehand. If your dog is not jumping, you need to attend a Try-it day or have had at least 1 private lesson prior to being eligible to rent the dock.
1 - 2 dogs ($60)
3 - 4 dogs ($75)
5 - 6 dogs ($100)
