Calgary's First Indoor Dock for Dog Jumping
They HATE Water
If they hate the water, do not force them. Dogs should not be forced to do anything they do not wish. #splashzoneyyc is not for them!
Updated for July 1st 2019. Over the years, we have trialed a few different recommended methods when having the pool available for clients to use. We have gone from Beginners to Advanced Classes, to group classes to just individual sessions. We have tried multiple ways to book and it has all been trial and error of the years.
After running our 2018 Winter sessions, we found more and more people, just wanted to use the pool casually, and have the spot for themselves. So as of July 1st, 2019 - we have stopped our online booking system of ICLASSPRO, and decided to use our own GINGR booking system to book intervals of pool use.
We also will no longer be advertising as DOCK USE, but have changed our Splashzone use to be POOL USE. As we are not professionals when it comes to training dock diving, we are here to supervise recreational use of our pool. Our lifeguards are on site for supervision and cleanup only.
Starting July 2019 - we will have sessions open Wed and Thurs evenings starting at 7pm till 9pm. We will add more evenings as requested. To sign up, please sign up on GINGR: https://sleeprover.gingrapp.com/front_end/login/email
You only need to sign the SPLASHZONE WAIVER. Dates will be uploaded July 1st, 2019.
BEFORE YOU ASK ABOUT THE POOL
how much does your dog love water?
Water is LIFE!
If they love water, than sign up immediately for a few Beginner Group Sessions to get them all warmed up. Once they feel comfortable, progression into the fast paced Advanced classes will get them more water time!
It all started as Shogun's Love for the Water...
In Calgary, we have a short summer season - so to increase Shogun's time in the water, we added an indoor pool. Come try it out supervised with our coaches. Join the Calgary Dock Diving Dogs here: Facebook Page.

Loves River & Ocean
If Rover is not afraid of the water, and you want them to try it out - we can help guide them with a life jacket that you can rent for $5 per session.
Keep in mind, the pool is different than the river/ocean - it is more intimidating, and might take a few sessions for Rover to get comfortable.
