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 for Distance Jump, each dog must have a minimum of three DJ 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 Distance Jump 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.

Other Notes







Thursday - Sunday  July 11-14, 2024
  • Thursday - Sunday check-in, & run order boards open at 7:00am. There will be NO practice in the morning. Distance splashes will start at 8am, AR/HD briefing will be at 8:30 and we will start at 9am. 

  • Sunday - Cards must be turned in no later then 1pm. All splashes must be complete by 3pm

  • Pool #1 will run only distance splashes. Pool #2 will start each day with either AR or HD, then run distance splashes and try-its. 

    Try-its will also run on pool #2 from 7:30-9 each day and after splashes are finished each day.  There is no NOON option for AR/HD


    • When you arrive and get settled, come check in at the admin table (best without your dog) , under the red 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 card). ALL splashes must be paid for at check in. Removing/not paying for preregistered splashes will result in a no show. 
    • You will get a splash card for each of the distances purchased. (HD and AR do not get cards).   
    • 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). 
    • Running Order
      • 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.  (we tend to run early!) 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.
        • Boards will fill up fast. If you arrive to find them full in the morning, don't panic, we can usually work you in if you can work with us. Just ask the board person nicely. 
        •  Once we start splashes in the morning we don't stop. That means we could be running early. (sometimes as much as 45 mins ahead of schedule) So please check back frequently to make sure you know where we are in the run order. 

        • We line up 3-5 dogs at a time and get them ready to go on the dock for their turn: There will be a space marked at the base of the stairs for the next dog on the dock.  Please be ready when your dogs name is called. If you miss your turn we will sort you back in the run order but can't guarantee how quickly we can get your splashes back on the board. 




  • Qualifying ribbons will be available after your jumps.  Ribbons are all self serve and available at the ribbons table next to the admin tent.  


RV Parking 

This location does have onsite camping. Please reach out to the fairgounds to secure a camping spot.
