Dock Diving is one of the fastest growing sports for your dog. North America Diving Dogs (NADD) is an organization that has enhanced the sport by working with dock diving facilities and competitors across North America.
North America Diving Dogs titles are recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) through 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.
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.
North America Diving Dogs is staffed by owners of dock diving facilities and by seasoned competitors. so we want both the facilities and competitors to be successful in the sport of dock diving.
If you are new to the sport, we will be offering several training programs for you and your dog to learn about dock diving. We will be offering several levels of Diving Dog classes that will range from teaching your dog to swim up to competition classes. Some of the other programs we will offer will be Dock Rental and Private Lessons.
We will be hosting four official trials at 24k Diving Dogs. Please visit the official NADD website for all the rules, regulations, and to register for upcoming trials.
