_____________________________________________


We will have two pools this year! The competition pool and the practice pool.
We at American Diving Dogs are proud to have been invited to participate at the 2017 Paws with Friends K-9 Expo. This event provides the fun and new experiences that American Diving Dogs strives to bring to its competitors every year and we hope that you can come and join us for a fun filled weekend of family, friends, fun and most importantly fuzzballs that make the world go round. But . . . and there is always a but . . . because this is still a fairly new venue and new experience, we want to try and accommodate as many people as possible, new and veteran jumpers.

To that end, we will be signing up new puppies who have NEVER experienced the joy and awesome that is dock diving for PRACTICE ONLY on a limited first come, first serve basis for each dive ONSITE, credit cards and cash accepted. There will be no online pre-registration for practice. The number of new dogs permitted to practice between each dive will depend upon time, you know the thing we all wish sometimes we had more of, as determined by the ADD staff. It is our desire at ADD to provide a strife free, fun experience for everyone, new and old. Our motto, or one of a many that we make up as we go along, is never to be the DMV. Long lines are the enemy of fun even at Disneyland. Our goal, as always, is to have no lines or to be the enemy of fun. So given this is uncharted territory, we ask for your cooperation and patience in building a memory that we will need to carry with us through until next year when we get to do it ALL OVER AGAIN!! So here's to seeing you and your pups out on the dock.
