Bring your dog to the Wisconsin Sport Show to try dock diving for the first time or to compete like a pro!
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.
What is a “Try-It” and how does it work?
Try-Its are available at the Wisconsin Sport Show. You do not have to have a NADD # for the try-it. Each morning you must sign up at the registration booth at the event for the times that Try-It is available. The cost for two tickets to Try-It with your dog is $10, spaces are very limited!
Does my dog need to be registered with NADD to participate in the competition?
Yes, you will need to register your dog with NADD before you can participate in the event. The registration fee is $35 (per dog) and only needs to be paid once, after which point you will only need to pay for each individual splash your dog jumps in. Exception: dogs do not need to register with NADD to partake in Try-It splashes To receive your NADD ID, you can register your dog online on the NADD website here. You can also pay the NADD registration fee when you attend your first event, but we recommend registering for a NADD ID online prior to attending in order to simplify the check-in process when you arrive.
On-line registrations for the North America Diving Dogs competition will close September 4, 2021. Try-It participants can walk up and register at the event.
