Just like people, many dogs don’t take to swimming naturally; they need to learn how to do it. Courteous Canine offers private swimming lessons for your puppy or adult dog in our dog dock jumping competition-standard swimming pool. Gradually, we will work with your four-legged friend to increase his confidence in the water and soon, he’ll take to swimming like a duck to water! Our pool dock features artificial turf that is easy on paw pads and a beach entry type water entry and exit.
Introduction to Dog Dock Jumping
Class Type: Group. Maximum 6 dogs
Term: 1 class, 90 Minutes $30
Prerequisite: Completion of Puppy Kindergarten or Adult Dog Manners. Completion of swim class. Completion of group classes at other schools is accepted for the prerequisite.
You’ve seen it on TV: a dog running at top speeds across a dock and then gleefully leaping into the air and landing in a pool. Now, your dog can do it, too.
In this introductory session, you and your dog can try the exciting sport of dog dock jumping, a sport where the dogs are grouped by size, and the dog within each group who jumps the farthest wins. At Courteous Canine’s competition-level dock and swimming pool, dogs are exposed to the dock and then slowly into the pool. Dogs are required to know how to swim prior to signing up for this class. They are gradually exposed to the pool, the ramp and to jumping. Many dogs are crazy for this sport, and it is gaining tremendous popularity all over the US. All breeds of dogs that are able to swim are encouraged to take this class.
Splash Alert! You will get wet during the class so please bring towels and a change of clothing! Also this class is open for dogs that enjoy swimming. If you need a swim lesson please contact Info@CourteousCanine.com and we will be happy to set that up for you!
