Outdoor Dock Diving Pool
Swimming is not only fun but offers many physical therapy benefits to aging dogs and dogs that suffer from joint pain, arthritis, muscle, soft tissue pain and obesity. Hydrostatic pressure from the pool has been known to reduce pain and inflammation. It helps to build and maintain muscle mass, increase range of motion, improve circulation, relieve pain, stiffness and swelling, weight loss and provides mental stimulation. And of course, it is fun!

Diving dogs is a canine sport in which dogs are enticed to run the length of a dock and leap as far out into the water as possible to compete for height or distance. They're motivated to fly with a prized toy, which is thrown just out of reach in order to help them keep their momentum and get the best launch angle possible.
Dock Diving is one of the fastest growing sports for your dog. North America Diving Dogs is an organization that has enhanced the sport by working with dock diving facilities & competitors across North America.
North America Diving Dogs titles are recognized by the Canadian & American Kennel Club. Your dog DOES NOT have to be an CKC/AKC registered dog to participate in a North America Diving Dogs trial.
