Dock Diving is a special set up at our pool available on pre-scheduled Sundays. It is meant for owners to come and practice, or see if their dog is interested in the sport of dock diving. 

It is strongly recommend to ensure that your dog is already comfortable swimming and being around water before trying dock diving. 

The pool is also open during the week for the dogs to simply swim and get used to the pool.

Five dogs are scheduled per hour, beginning at 1 pm.
