This 5 week class teaches you and your dog, as a team, confidence and basic skills for the sport of dock diving. Class starts May 18!
Dates: 5/18,5/25, 6/1, 6/8, 6/ 15 (Thursdays)
In this class, we teach your dog how to safely enter and exit the pool. We start with lots of “ramp work”, where we build the confidence of pushing off the ramp into the pool to retrieve the object toy. When a satisfactory level of confidence is achieved we will attempt to move to our lower level dock, to attempt that first jump. All dogs must be at least 6 months old, and have some swimming experience. ** Note: not all dogs have the confidence or the drive to become dock diving dogs. We will try our best to build confidence in the 5 weeks of class. Toy drive is a must! This is a BEGINNER level class, please no dogs with dock experience. If you have an experienced dog, looking to build confidence; please see our Advanced Dock Diving – Beyond the Basics class or private lessons.
NO food treats are allowed on the dock or in the pool area.
Dogs must be on leash at all times, unless on the dock, or in a crate.
- maximum 6 foot standard leash or slip lead
- a variety of toys that float
- Closed shoes/sandals or water shoes (NO flip flops or slides!)
- water resistant clothing, or a change of clothes for you. Even though you will not be in the pool- you WILL get wet!
- A crate for your dog to rest between turns, if you choose.
*All dogs must be up to date on all vaccinations (including rabies, kennel cough and Parvo) and printed proof of rabies is required prior to participation in any class, lesson or event. You may bring a copy with you on your first day of class or email your records to email@example.com. There are no exceptions. Dogs who are not current on vaccinations will not be permitted in class.
