Don't think a dog can change your entire life?  Well, think again...  When a severe illness threatened my life, God sent an amazing little yellow Labrador to brighten up my world.  Suzy is an Amazing athlete and even more, a miracle friend that forever changed my life!  So, basically, whatever Suzy wants, Suzy gets!

And...  this is why she has her Own Personal 21'x41' Dock Diving Pool...  and although she was reluctant to share it with Anyone, she finally agreed...  lol

So, if you are interested in coming and playing in Suzy's pool, please feel free to give us a call and make an appointment!  (Disclosures and Rules listed below).


Dock Diving is an up and coming new canine sport that is taking the nation by storm!  More information regarding this is included in our link to NADD, below.

Additional Information

 (Copied from the NADD "About Us" Page)


Dock Diving is one of the fastest growing sports for your dog.  North America Diving Dogs is an organization that has enhanced the sport by working with dock diving facilities & competitors across North America.

North America Diving Dogs titles are recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) though the AKC's Title Recognition Program.  Your dog DOES NOT have to be an AKC registered dog to participate in a North America Diving Dogs trial.  Dogs without an AKC Pedigree may join the AKC's Canine Partners program for AKC Titling recognition.

If you are new to the sport, most of the dock diving facilities have training programs for you and your dog to learn about dock diving.

North America Diving Dogs is open for all breeds and mixes.  We have created divisions so any size and age of dog can achieve excellence.  The Open class is for all size dogs.  The Lap Class is for all dogs under 16″ at the withers.  If you have a Lap Class dog it can achieve the same titles as the Open Class but does not have to jump the same distance.  We also offer a Veterans division.

North America Diving Dogs recognizes every Qualifying jump that your dog earns toward a Title no matter what division it is earned in.  Qualifying jumps add up to Titles throughout your dog’s entire career. Your NADD titles will be recognized by both AKC & CKC.

North America Diving Dogs is staffed by individuals passionate about the sport and the competitors (the dogs) both new & experienced, so we want both the events and competitors to be successful in the sport of dock diving. All facilities are independently owned. NADD has 6 portable docks that brings dock diving to the AKC shows to introduce more dogs to the sport.
