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.

Hello and welcome to all our NADD Competitors 

We all know these are troubling times and because of this we have to impose some rules for the safety and  of all who will be attending. 
This letter will serve to address our plan on addressing new rules put in place due to Covid-19 as well serve as our handler’s meeting for those of you who have been here before and those of you who may be new to the Ocala Dog Ranch.   If this is your first time at our facility and you have a question not addressed here please feel free to reach out to Sally or Neil .
If you’re not feeling well or are uncomfortable with attending during Covid-19, please stay home.  There will be other events and your wellness is the most important thing. You will not receive a black mark if you cancel last minute.  We have suspended that rule at our events for the time being. 
ODR will be dividing competitors into smaller groups to assist with social distancing.
This will be done by owners last name. On Friday  A-J will be 9am-1p,  K-Z will be 1p-5p.  If you are jumping AR come to the latter group if you like.  
Saturday A-J will jump from 9a-1p and K-Z will be 1p-5p.   On Sunday it will be reversed so K-Z will be 9a-1p and A-J will be 1p-5p.
We will be using jump cards and your dog’s name will go on the white board which will be our running order.  You are welcome to jump all 4 of your distance jumps in a small time frame but remember you must have at least 1 dog between your jumps. Once all your jumps are completed, you can leave and help with lowering the amount of people at the event thereby helping with social distancing.   If you’re Competing in AR or Hydrodash which is at the end of the day, sign in will be 4-5 each day so don’t feel the need to get there early in the morning.  Also, if you are competing in AR or Hydrodash as well as jumping distance you can come later in the day, if you choose, even though you may not be in the group we have there at the time so you don’t have to leave and come back.  It is however, an option, to get all your distance jumps in and leave and come back for AR or Hydrodash.
Parking is close to the pool. 
All crating will be in  your vehicle, or directly behind. NO space sharing unless you are same household.
Social Distancing of 6 feet will be maintained at all times if you can’t practice social distancing you must wear a face covering outside of your crating area or on the dock.  For those of you that have 2 handlers on dock both of you must wear a mask, unless from same house hold.  The thrower may take off their mask to direct the dog and throw the toy. 
As above,  your last name will determine the time you are able to come to the event. Please  don't come to early and leave in a timely manner once you’re finished. 
We will have a food vendor a chiropractic vendor a T-shirt/gift vendor and a dog toy vendor. along with the regular toys and such that we have available from the Ocala Dog Ranch .

There will only be 3 dogs in the common area at one time: ON DOCK, ON DECK and IN THE HOLE. These  areas will be identified 
We will have a sound system that hopefully everyone we be able to hear. 
Once you are called to the dock you will enter the gate close to  the admin tent and then climb the dock stairs on west side (closest)
When you have finished your jumps you will exit the dock on east side (opposite from where you entered) and leave pool area thru the north gate, (this is a new gate) and return to your crating area from there.  Please don’t hang around and help create a crowd.
We will have a running order before starting.  There will only be 2 dogs in the common area ON THE DOCK and ON DECK waiting in the designated area. You will enter and exit the dock and dock area the same way as described above for distance jumping.  Again, once finished you must return to your crating area in a timely manner.
After you have finished up for the day, please collect your ribbons and leave the property and drive home safely.  Thank you for  abiding by the rules so that we could offer this event. How it goes this time will determine if we can have more before the State is completely back to normal.
