Event Notes

  • A NADD Registration Number is required to enter, purchase here for $35.00.
  • Splashes include up to three 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 and result in a no-show. If you are registering multiple dogs there will be a no-show for each dog. You are responsible for all pre-registered splashes.
  • 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.

NADD Regionals Qualifier

This is a qualifier event for the NADD Diving Dog Regionals.
  • In order to qualify, each dog must have a minimum of three splashes completed at this event. We then take the average of the top three jumps from the event for each dog. Only the top 3 dogs in each division will receive an automatic invite to the Regionals.
  • Jumps in all the Splashes will count towards your NADD/AKC titles.
  • The Air Retrieve and Hydro Dash qualifier will be based on the highest score achieved at the event. In both Open & Lap, the Top 3 Finishers for each division will earn invites.

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

Admin & boards will open at 8am. We will start jumping dogs at 8:30am. AR/HD will run at 12:00 & 4:00pm. 



Between 12-1 each day will be an optional time for HD (max 30 spots) or AR (max 10 spots) depending on whats offered that day. You can sign up that morning to compete at that time slot. 


Parking & Fees

Parking passes will be available for purchased on-line. Details will be posted when available.   

A  ruling  of  the  Kentucky  Exposition  Center  stipulates  that  all  vehicles  entering  the  Kentucky  Exposition Center  are  to  be  charged  a  $10.00  parking  fee  at  the  gate  each  time  upon  entering  the  grounds. Discounted parking passes can be purchased in advance through the Kentucky Exposition Center. Exhibitors  may  purchase  an  “Event  Pass”  which  allows  unlimited  access  to  the  site  for  as  many  days  as required. The price of the  “Event Pass”  will be based upon  $12.00 per day during restricted hours. Prices for an  “Event Pass”  are subject to change by the Kentucky Exposition Center. All parking regulations must be observed or vehicles will be towed. Exhibitors  are  responsible  for  observing  all  parking  regulations  and  signs.  The  clubs  have no  jurisdiction  over  parking  and  absolve  themselves  of  any  responsibility  and/or  liability  to exhibitors who park illegally or have damage done to their vehicles.



When you arrive and get settled, come check in at the admin table (best without your dog) , under the Antinol 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) , 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 person 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.

This will be a packed event so time will be a factor.  If you come later in the morning you may have to wait a while to get your splashes done.


* Maximum of 12 distance splashes per event per dog. 


Please read before signing up!
