About Dog Diving

Dog diving is a high energy & extremely fun sport for all breeds & mixed breeds of dogs!

In a nutshell: You and your dog stand on a 40+ foot dock, you throw a bumper or toy into the swimming pool at the end of the dock while your dog jumps in to grab it. Your dog is then judged based on their distance of jump!

Course/Training Options:

Visit our Store for Course/Workshop/Registration Information

Classes: Classes are open to all dogs & handlers, to help you and your dog learn new skills over a course of 6 weeks. Classes are a great opportunity for you and your dog to learn new skills during the class period and then practice those skills on your own, at home, until the next class period. At the end of the course session, you and your dog should be able to perform all of the skills learned during the class. There are various different classes to choose from to suit your needs.

Diving Parties: Diving Parties are open to all dogs & handlers who wish to try out dock diving! Diving Parties are an excellent way for you and your dog to practice, gain more confidence on the dock, as well as exercise and build up the muscles necessary to truly be competitive. (You don't need to be competitive to be a dock diver! You can simply join us for fun!).

One-on-One: One-on-One training is open to all dogs & handlers, and is great for individuals or dogs who may not do well in group settings, or for those who want to work on very specific issues. One-on-one training can also be helpful when you have already taken a class but need extra work on a skill discussed in the class. 

Workshops: Workshops are open to all dogs & handlers and are intensive group training sessions, often times consisting of 1-2 days of training beginning at roughly 8am-4pm. Workshops are designed for individuals and dogs of all different levels to gain experience through hands on training. Workshops may take place at our Apple Blossom Kennels facility, or at a pre-approved location designated by you and/or your group.
