Dock Diving Details:

- Pool will be open for practice at 3:00 PM on Friday, at 10:00 AM on Saturday and at 9:00 AM on Sunday.
- Please arrive at the pool and check in at least 30 min before your first splash.
- Please print off, sign and bring along the NADD Covid Waiver, NADD Waiver and Pier Pups Waiver. We will need all three signed waivers before you will be issued a wristband and allowed on the dock. Any additional handlers/holders will also need to sign the waivers.
- We accept cash, checks, contactless PayPal payments and credit cards. Credit card payment will be charged a 3% service charge.
- Again this year...We are taking the chill out of the water! We are bringing in a heater to warm up the water a bit so it is more comfortable for the dogs and the humans.
- Handlers meeting will be held approx. 15 min before the first splash of the day.
- Each day there will be "Day-Of" registration spots for Distance and Air Retrieve (if offered on that day). Try-Its will be allowed as space permits.
- There will be a designated crating area for dogs competing in Pier Pups. Pets are allowed in the expo, provided they are on a 6' leash, NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES.
- We suggest that you bring your dog's favorite floating toy, food and water, treats, collar and leash, towels for drying off, blankets and crate. We might also suggest that you bring a change of clothes for yourself and perhaps, a coat for your dog, since we could still have winter weather in Wisconsin and it can be cold especially when you're wet. Blankets, extra towels and crate covers will help to keep your dog warm. There is electricity in the crating area if you want to bring a dryer for your dog.
- If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .

Try-its: Try-its will be allowed as space permits and during Splashes if no competitors are waiting to jump. Try-its cost $10.00 for two Try-it tickets, and each ticket gives you 3 minutes on the dock. These tickets may be used on any day of the competition, as space permits. You do not need to register in advance for Try-its. Try-its give you the opportunity to see if your dog is interested in the sport or allows dogs to practice their skills. Friday and Sunday will have the best opportunities for Try-its.
