Just like people, many dogs don’t take to swimming naturally; they need to learn how to do it. Courteous Canine offers group swimming classes or 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.

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 water loving 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 the distance that they jump.
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, email your video of your dog swimming to LoveDogs@CourteousCanine.com. 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. Courteous Canine Diving Dogs is affiliated with NADD- North American Diving Dogs.
Splash Alert! You will get wet during the class so please bring towels and a change of clothing! This class is open for dogs that enjoy swimming. If you need a swim lesson please contact LoveDogs@CourteousCanine.com and we will be happy to set that up for you!
Intermediate/Advanced Dock Jumping
If your dog already dock jumps or you have taken the intro class, and been cleared by your instructor, then this is the class for you. Refine your tossing skills and learn how to increase your dog’s “flight” distance.
