Other Notes

Since this event is more than 6 months away, please be aware that things might change during that time.  I will send an email to everyone of any changes.


We appreciate your coming to our event.  If there is anything we can do to make your experience better, please let us know.  Contact Person is Mary Watcher, 520-456-9020,


Please be sure to read our COVID-19 Plan at the end of this section.  By attending this event you are agreeing to abide by the rules set forth in Amazing Canines/Animal Watchers COVID-19 Plan.   Please remember to bring your signed NADD waiver and signed NADD COVID-19 waiver (available on the NADD website).


Because of COVID-19 the pool will only be open for splashes.  We also can not have a food vendor since we have no control over them to assure they are following COVID-19 guidelines.   We do not have fast food restaurants close by.  There is a Chevron station within a half-mile of us, and in Huachuca City (10 minute drive south of us) are a Circle K, and 3 restaurants.  Sierra Vista (15-20 minute drive) has plenty of fast food, chain restaurants, etc.


All start times are estimates.   We normally tend to start earlier than the listed time.  However, you will always get your splash if you are ready at the scheduled time.


To make the diving order easier we are keeping the same diving order both days.  We will use your dog's name in alphabetical order.

NADD Facility Event COVID-19 Plan



             As of May 20, 2020, the state of Arizona does not require a face mask or gloves to be worn. In our county we have only had 45 cases, and 1 death.  We are in a rural area.  Events may be held as long as there is enough room to accommodate the 6-foot distance requirement.  

            We are requiring that masks be worn when walking around the facility.  Once you are on the dock you may  take your mask off.  Before leaving the dock, put your mask back on. 


Please respect the 6-foot distance between people rule. Some of our competitors have 2 or more dogs entered; and some are only staying for a splash or two.   This will significantly lower the actual number of people attending.

            Please help us by staying 6-feet away from everyone, even friends unless you drove here with them.   The same 6-foot rule applies if you need to speak with the trial secretary, judges, etc

            Anyone who does not maintain a 6-ft distance might be asked to leave immediately and will forfeit their splashes/money.



 Unfortunately, we will not be able to allow spectators.

Everyone must check in before entering the pool area.

No Exceptions.


Parking:  We will have a "loading/unloading" area for this event. 


Check-In.  There will be a table(s)to the right of the entrance gate.  There will be 6-ft ground markers leading up to the check in-desk.  A container will be on a table for:  1) NADD COVID-19 Waiver and 2) NADD Event Waiver.  Pliease remember these two Waivers must be completed, signed and dated prior to checking in.  They can be found on the NADD website and you may email them to me prior to the event:



Payment.  Please have exact amount if paying by cash.  All checks need to be made payable to "Animal Watchers".  We will accept VISA or MC, but for this event it would be helpful to us (less contact with a person) if you can pay by cash or check.


Diving Order.  You will receive a "diving order of dogs"  the night before the event, or sooner.  The order will be by the dog's name, alphabetically. We are doing this so you don't have to crowd around the Entrance Gate or the secretary's area looking to see when it's your turn.


Entering and Exiting the Grounds around the Pool:  There will be one gate to enter the pool vicinity and another to exit. They will be clearly marked.


Pool / Dock:  You will be entering the dock on the left staircase, again it is clearly marked Entrance.  You will be leaving the pool by the right side staircase.  There will be a divider between the 2 staircases.


Scores:  To avoid a gathering of people, we encourage you  to check your scores on the NADD website.  They are normally posted a few minutes after the secretary enters them.


 Ribbons:  Ribbons will not be given out after each splash.  The ribbons are not self-serve.  One of our staff members (taking all the necessary safety precautions) will place all of your Qualifying ribbons for the event in a plastic bag. For  "new title" ribbons as well as Advanced and Excellent titles, you must pick up at the trial secretary's table.


If you are staying for both days, your ribbons for Saturday can be picked up anytime on Sunday before the competition ends. 


If you are done with your splashes before Splash 4 or Splash 8, we will do our best to get your ribbons ready in a timely manner. 


Leaving the Event Grounds:  When your splashes are finished for the day, please exit the grounds as soon as you can.  The less people we have on the grounds the easier it is to maintain 6-feet from other people.




Gates:   All gates will remain open throughout the event including gates on the dock.  Please remember the 12 acres where the pool is located is not fenced in.


 Bathrooms.  For this event our inside bathroom will not be available for use.  We will have 2 Port-a-Potties near the exit.  There is a 3rd port-a-potty (handicap) over next to the agility field.  These port-a-potties will each have a bottle of Lysol and paper towels so you can wipe the toilet seat, door handle, etc.  Hand sanitizers will be available right next to the port-a-potties.


High-Traffic Areas:  We will sanitize the dock railings, tables, trash cans, etc. between splashes.  If you notice an area that needs to be sprayed, please let us know.





 Driveway Gate:

Entering:  Our driveway has an electronic gate.  The key pad is on the left side (driver's side) when entering.  The Code is 1, 2, 3, 4.  The Code is also written on the key pad.

Exiting:  The gate should open automatically for you.  If it does not open there is a read box on the left side of the driveway that has a remote control in it which has always worked.  Just point it towards the gate, push the button and return the remote to the box.


 Loading and Unloading:  For this event we will have a loading/unloading area, but you must wear a mask in this area.


Parking:  You may park anywhere except in front of the Kennel Office Door and to the right side of the kennel door.


All dog must be on leash at all times except on the dock or inside the fenced potty area.


 Bring a canopy for shade, ground is dirt.  


Covered Agility Area.  You may set-up in the agility area, it is definitely cooler than under a canopy.  Do not use any of the agility equipment.  Anyone using the agility equipment will be asked to leave.
