Announcement: BRAND NEW TRY IT DOCK BEING INSTALLED FOR 2020.
And We will be doubling our try it sessions for 2020. We will have 4 sessions per month.
We will now be offering 2 levels of Try It sessions for the 2020 Season.
Level 1 will be for dogs that have never attempted the sport of dock jumping. Level 2 will be for docks that have some experience but need to build more confidence on the dock.
Get on our subscribers list to be notified when all of our events open for registration.
Come try dock jumping in a stress free environment with some of our club members!
Even if you're not sure if your dog swims, or even likes water, this may be an exciting activity for your pet, and your whole family!
Our team will hold a demonstration, followed by a hands-on practice session for those who are signed up (or are interested in signing up).
We will get your dog familiar with the ramp, walking them in and out of the pool, followed by a swim to get your pup acclimated to the water. Our volunteers will be in the water with your dog to help them gain confidence. The next step is getting your dog's playful nature engaged to start chasing a toy down the dock. The final part is using that excitement to overcome any fear the dog might have of jumping into the water. It is really fun to watch a dog get over that fear and make its first happy jump in!
Geared to dogs that have been to a try it session before. We will focus on confidence on the dock. We will also start the process of training the handler. Teaching the handler the different techniques used in the sport of dock jumping
We are HANDS ON......which means our volunteers will be handling and touching your dogs. If your dog does not like to be touched by strangers or is reactive. Please be aware theses sessions may not be for you, or we may need to use a muzzle for the safety of our staff.
All of our sports have been a huge success for both the dogs and their handlers, as well as the fans that cheer on the dogs!
$25.00 for each dog with a maximum of 8 dogs per session for Level 1 and 10 dogs for Level 2. Sessions will be held once a month starting in June. Please keep checking the website, our facebook page or join our subscribers list to see when sessions open for registration.
