Prerequisite: Dog Swimming 101: Puppy Pool Safety
Intro to Dock Jumping! Learn how to introduce your dog to dock jumping. This sport is for dogs that love the water and like making a big splash! Bring towels and change of clothing so you and your dog can have a blast in this one-time class that gets you started in this exciting new sport. Progress in this class depends on your dog’s swimming ability and how motivated she is for a toy which prompts her to jump into the pool. The dock is two feet above the water surface, so dogs that jump into a pool need gradual exposure to the increase in height. Dogs that are used to jumping into lakes or ponds may find the clear water confusing. Bring your camera and come join the fun!
Please be sure your dog's core vaccines are up to date, or you have up to date titers. We also require rabies for dogs over six months and bordetella. We also require the H3N2 canine flu vaccine.
