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 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.

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.

Other Notes

Join us for our season opening fiesta! 


  • We will run this with open splashes using jump cards; the splash times will all say 0900 so don't stress. You can do a maximum of 4 distance splashes with 12 total distance splashes for the entire event. AR and HD will be at 12 noon as well as at 5pm; you cannot do both.
  • If you preregister and need to change something you have until 14 days prior to the event to do so. Once preregistered you can only pull with a vet's note for that specific dog or a doctor's note for the handler. Remember that anyone can jump your dog(s) for you and arrangements can be made.
  • We are working towards accepting prepayments after preregistration has closed and prior to the event to decrease the check-in line. Cash is always preferred, however, we also accept checks with a valid state ID # as well as phone number, and credit/debit cards; credit/debit card transactions will have a 3% fee added. Please stay tuned for updates. Preregistration is $25.00 per splash and on-site registration is $30 per splash.
  • Concessions will be available to purchase as well as lunch. Lunch will be a taco bar with the usual sides; vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free choices will be available. 
  • Smaller RV's and camping is allowed on-site without hookups. There is a KOA as well as a couple of military RV parks close by should you want/need hookups. Please email us when you preregister so we can get your spaces marked. If you plan to register on-site, please give us a heads up so we can check to make sure we have room for you.
  • Parking information will be sent out in the email after preregistration closes. Keep in mind that Shipps Corner is an active pet spa and doggie daycare and parking spots will be designated appropriately. If you park along the driveway all 4 of your wheels must be off the pavement to allow emergency service vehicles to access the building unencumbered. Parking near the hydrant is not allowed. If you are off-loading your vehicle please pull into the wooded lot adjacent to dog town instead of stopping or standing by the curb with flashers to avoid being towed.
  • Please pick up after your dog as the Poop Fairy will be on vacation. If you find an orphaned poop please adopt it and give it a nice home. Admin always has poop bags.
  • If any issues arise during the event please bring them immediately to Dani or Bill so we can address the issue. We want everyone to have a fun time with their dog(s) and fellow competitors throughout the entire event.
