Dock Diving

We are having our last Dock Diving practice on October 22nd.  The dome is going up after that and we will resume practices after the dome is down in the spring. 

We will be setting up the dock for people to come and practice or to come and see if their dog is interested in it.  It is best if the dog is comfortable in the water before asking them to jump into a pool.  If your dog does not know how to swim, you could cause them to fear the water.

Please give us a call at 540-439-7297 to schedule a slot.  We will be signing up 5 dogs per hour starting at 12 pm.  Practices will be every other Sunday during the warm months.  Please check the calendar page for the exact dates.  There will be a $10/dog fee.
