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 being run by a NADD mobile dock. Info on parking and other event site info can be found on the event description or on our social media page.
  • 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.
  • AS TIME ALLOWS: Each competing dog will get one Try-it ticket per day that they are entered, to use for an extra practice round. The handler must request this ticket at check-in. Each dog will be given three minutes on the dock. If a Try-it or competing dog wishes to have more time, they may purchase additional tickets as timing allows.

There is a parking fee. And a multi pass available.   
There is some parking very close to the dock, please do not park in the grass.  Tents and chairs can be setup around the dock.  Bathrooms are a few blocks away, Porta johns are a little walk. get your steps in!  Food vendors will be near the main building.

 

There is RV parking, contact the facility for reserving.  Check the premium for more info.   

 

HOW IT WORKS:

When you arrive and get settled, come check in at the admin table (best without your dog) , usually under a pink Eukanuba tent, near the dock and pool.  Share a warm greeting and your dog(s) name and what you need (either checking in or needing to sign up) , then sign your waiver(s).    You will get a total for your jumps, etc, then pay (cash, check, credit, paypal) , and then receive your jump cards (HD and AR do not get cards).   Probably best to head right to the board and let the board boss know when and how you'd like to jump (pick your times and spacing between jumps/dogs).
Once on the board, keep an eye and an ear out for your turn as it can always shift a little earlier or later than you scheduled.  If you miss your turn within 30 mins we can usually get you right in but any longer and you may end up moving to later in the day. Just know we will do everything we can to accommodate your jump needs.

 

* Maximum of 12 distance splashes per event per dog. 

  

Please read before signing up!

Dock Rules

  • Thank you for understanding our no off-leash policy. (Except when on the dock)
  • Please pick up after your dogs. If you don’t follow this rule you will be asked to leave and NO refunds will be given. Disposal of poop should only be in outdoor waste containers.
  • Please communicate all problems, all concerns, and issues you have with the staff, the facility or any of the handlers and their dogs immediately as they occur, we want to address problems in real time to solve it during the event. There is no way to correct it after the event is over. So please!!! do not hesitate to talk to us! We want you to have the best possible experience at our event.
  • The most important rule! Please have fun with your dog!

NADD will attempt to work with all show conflicts, but it is the handlers responsibility to inform NADD of these issues with enough time for NADD to make adjustments.

 

If your conflicts do not allow you to get to the pool until 4:00 or later, you will have to wait until the conclusion of air retrieve to jump.
