Dock Diving or Dock Jumping is a canine aquatic sport that requires dogs to jump off a dock at the end of a pool, to catch and retrieve objects.

The dock is 40’ long x 8’ wide and 2’ off the water. At the end of the dock is a large pool, 40’ long x 20’ wide x 4’ deep.

The popular North America Diving Dogs organization, NADD, is the organization offering titles for which you can apply for recognition in AKC.

Titles are earned by accumulating five (5) qualifying jumps within one “Division.” There are 5 Divisions requiring a certain set of skills! After the specific Division title is achieved, additional titles for Advanced and Excellent level skills, can be achieved by completing an additional 25 qualifying jumps per Division.

You can get started in Dock Diving by entering at event and signing your Akita up for a practice jump!
