Dock diving is a must see! You can watch these amazing flying dogs dive far into a pool of water. You’ll be amazed at how far and high these dock divers can go! Not only can you just sit back and watch competitors compete, but there will be two hours each day for anyone to try their dog on the dock. ANY dog can do this!
North America Diving Dogs titles are recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) through the AKC’s Title Recognition Program. Your dog DOES NOT have to be an AKC registered dog to participate in a North America Diving Dogs trial. Dogs without an AKC Pedigree may join the AKC’s Canine Partners Program for AKC Titling recognition.
If you are new to the sport, most of the dock diving facilities have training programs for you and your dog to learn about dock diving.
NADD is open for all breeds and mixes. They have created divisions so any size and age of dog can achieve excellence! The Open Class is for all size dogs. The Lap Class is for all dogs under 16” at the withers. If you have a Lap Class dog, it can achieve the same titles as the Open Class but does not have to jump the same distance. They also offer a Veterans Division!
