Again this year, we have the exciting and fun sport of … Dock Diving. This family sport has its origins with hunting/gun dogs leaping into icy water to retrieve ducks and geese. These events, sanctioned by the American Kennel Club, will be conducted by North America Diving Dogs (NADD). Both competitive, as well as “My dog can do that!” events will be offered. The public is welcome to bring their dogs to “Try-it” at dock diving. Any breed, any mix, and any size dog may participate. If a “team” (dog and handler) is currently a competitive pair, or are ready for their first competition, they can register for their “splashes” by going to the NADD webpage … www.northamericadivingdogs.com We are very proud to announce that the Mountain Valley Cluster Dog Show event have been selected by the AKC and NADD as one of three qualifying locations in the Southeast for the 2018 AKC/NADD Eukanuba National Championships to be conducted December 15 & 16, 2018 in Orlando, Florida. The “diving pool” will be open Wednesday thru Saturday, 9:00am – 5:00pm, and Sunday, 9:00am – 3:00pm. Bring the dog and the family … It’s a pool full of fun! Spectators are welcome. Admission and car parking are FREE. Vendors will be available offering a vast array of dog related merchandise and supplies. Only dogs registered to compete, dogs attending a health clinic or “Service Dogs” are allowed in the Civic Center. No dogs are sold at the show.
