I want a dock diving / swimming private lesson as a non-member with any instructor

If you've never done swimming / dock diving before with your dog, we recommend a 30 minute private lesson. If you have 2 dogs, we recommend a 60 minute private lesson (i.e., 30 minutes per dog). However, it is not a requirement, just a recommendation based on our experience so you're dogs gets the most out of the lesson. You're more than welcome to bring friends, family, or participate with multiple dogs. Once your dog can enter and exit the pool without help, you can rent the pool, join open swim, and dock diving practice as a non-member.

I want a try dock diving / swimming with my dog in a one-time group class (2-3 dogs max)

This is a great option for those people who want to see if their dog might like dock diving and/or swimming; This one-time class will include other dogs (3 dog maximum), so it is not as intimate as a private lesson but a nice option for those folks who want to see if their dog is the next big dock diver! Depending on the class size (limit is 3), your dog will get 20-30 minutes of pool lesson time in this one hour try it class. keep in mind, other dogs / people will be there which can be distracting for a dog that's never done it before.

I want to take a "dry" dock diving 2-hour workshop with my dog to learn the fundamentals

We've created a dock diving fundamentals workshop where both beginner and experienced handlers can learn the technique of the throw and get their dogs "targeting" the toy in the air with "dry" dock diving exercises that practice the throw for the handler and catch for the dog. The process will be simulated using an agility jump without the pool. It’s not only practical; it’s also a lot of fun! These "dry" fundamentals include practicing sit-stay, toy targeting, jumping, etc.

I want a dock diving / swimming lesson as a non-member with Lisa 

Lisa has competed in both North American Diving Dogs (NADD) and Ultimate Air Dog Nationals. She is a great option for beginners interested in competing their dogs in dock diving, or people who actively compete their dog in dock diving.  However, any person looking get to their dog in the water for the first time is welcome to take her lessons.

I want a dock diving / swimming lesson as a non-member with Jack

Jack is good with all level of dock divers, but I would highly recommend jack if you have a dog that is jumping off the dock and you want to learn the techniques to get your dog jumping even further. His dog Finn is the only dog to jump over 30 feet at our facility, so Jack can show you the best throwing technique to get the most distance from your dog as possible!

Schedule Tips

I want a pool rental as a non-member

You have the option for a 30 minute or 60 minute pool rental. please advice that rentals during the weekday Monday-Friday from 8am-4pm will have limited space options due to doggy daycare. If you want more space and less distractions, we recommend coming on the weekend (Friday night, Saturday, or Sunday). 
For the safety of the dogs, rentals are only for dogs that can enter and exit the pool without help. That means, you either actively compete in dock diving or you have been "cleared" by an instructor to rent the pool.

Open Swim & Air Dog Club Practice

As a non-member of the Air Dog Club, you are still able to join open swim (2 hours on Friday night held about once every other month) and our Air Dog Club practice (Typically 4 hours once a month on Saturday) for a small fee. At both, you can just swim your dog or practice dock diving, whichever you want. As with the rentals, you're dog needs to be able to enter and exit the pool on his/her own as no instruction is given. You can view the schedule, book and pay online with the buttons below.
