I am here in Seattle and would really like to get my chocolate going on dock diving. I think she'd absolutely love it. I've emailed the dockdogs club here but have gotten no response. I don't know where to train her. I don't want to just show up at an event, I don't think she'd do really well with all the commotion. I've looked on the sites that people have posted but can't find anything. Can anyone help me or are there no classes or specific places really to train?
I just showed up at my first event. They had a training dock set up and you could go as many times as you wanted. The people were really great. I think most dock diving events are 3 days so if you can go all three days you will get a ton of training in.
Things you could do on your own to get ahead of the training curve would be to find a freind with an Above ground pool who will let you put a ramp in it so you can train your dog to get in and out of the pool and to jump off the top of the ramp into the pool.
