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

Check in will be at 8 am all 3 days. We will close admin and the boards between Noon and 1 pm and at 4 pm to run either HD or AR. We use the Card and Board system for time slots. This means there will be slots per hour such as 9 am, 10 am, 11 am, 1 pm, 2 pm, 3 pm and possibly approximately 5 pm and 6 pm on Friday and Saturday, however Sunday will be different. With this card system there can be a line to get checked in as well as at the board prior to either opening. Please remember it is first come, first serve and sometimes it can be a bit like Black Friday or waiting to buy concert tickets. We have no control over when the line will start. However we expect competitors to be courteous,  sportsmanlike, patient and kind to other competitors, our staff, volunteers, etc. We have 2 sets of stairs for entrance and exit on the dock which helps with being timely and efficient and moving right along with the Splashes.


We will notify you of changes via email and/or our NADD Mountain West Mobile Dock FB Group


Parking will be charged by The Tacoma Kennel Club on all 3 days. (cost is unknown). There will be limited day of entries for all disciplines (DJ, HD and AR).


Here is the information for set up and tear down for heavy labor positions as well as other volunteer needs for the 2024 NADD Mountain West Mobile Dock Tacoma Event. Many hands make light work and the events run more efficiently.


All jumps must be completed before 2 pm Sunday. Sign up for the NOON  HD or AR will be on a first come first serve basis. The sign up will be at the admin tent. There will only be a NOON HD on Sunday.


Bring your own shade, tie downs, water, etc. as it will be hot and likely windy. Please remember the judges tent, admin tent, board tent as well as our tents that are for lining up competitors are NOT places to congregate.
