Dock Diving

Owner/Trainer Rachael Brinkman holds private training for dock diving on a very limited basis. Please contact us for details.

Our pool is a 50’ x 23’ salt water pool, with a 40’ x 8’ wooden dock. The pool is located on private property in Gaines, MI. Pool is strictly appointment only.

Private lessons are dogs of all experience levels. Dogs must be 6 months of age, and up to date on vaccinations. Private rentals are also available. Most dogs only need 30 minute private lessons, but 60 minute private lessons work well for 2 dogs, or dogs that are confident jumpers and working on technique. If you’re interested in a private rental, there may be other days/times available at request. Private lesson is only available as listed on calendar.
