Event Notes

  • A NADD Registration Number is required to enter, purchase here for $35.00.
  • Splashes include up to four minutes on the dock for one optional practice jump and two judged jumps. You must inform the judge prior to your jump if you want it to be considered a "practice jump".
  • This event is an Open Splash event. This is done at Portable Dock trials and other shows that have timing conflicts with other dog events. The time for each splash for the day will be set such as 9am for example for all the splashes. You have between the posted start time and end time (either before AR starts or the end of the last day, usually 3pm) to complete your splashes for the day. When you check in you will be handed “Splash Cards” for each splash that you pay for. When you are ready to jump during the day, hand a splash card to the wrangler to get put into the running order. It is the handler's responsibility to be sure to be present it before their turn to jump. Please be aware that at many events, the running order board fills very quickly and early in the day.
  • Please Note: You must pay for all pre registered splashes at time of check-in. Any splashes not paid for will be put back into the event's on-site registration availability list.
  • Each distance jumping Splash allows 2 judged jumps, back to back. The longest jump of them will be your Qualifying Score.
  • You can earn a Diving Dog Title at this event. You must have five Qualifying Scores within a Division. NADD titles are recognized by the AKC and CKC through their recognition programs. View their applications here (AKC) and here (CKC).
  • Please read the official NADD Rules before you attend the Trial.

Try-its at this event

  • Try-its will be allowed as space permits and during Splashes if no competitors are waiting to jump. Try-its cost $10.00 for two Try-it tickets. These tickets may be used on any day of the competition.

Other Notes

3 days of splashes music and community. 
 
 This event is open times meaning there are no set splash times, we operate like a mobile dock.  You check in, get your splash cards or sign up for a try-it, and then get on the board.   

You can turn in your cards whenever you want. 

If it's your first time or you are a dock superstar, try-its are a great way to learn, fine tune, and have fun. You get two 3 minute sessions for $10.  

Air Retrieve is offered at this event on Friday and Saturday and Sunday, this is not a practice, it is for teams that already have the skill.  There will be training for Air retrieve offered at this facility throughout the season.   

If Air retrieve or a splash is sold out, don't worry.  We always hold spots for walk ups. If you shoot me an email to let me know, I'll give you the discounted pre-reg rate. 
Registration for this event will open on 04/08/2019.
