Wagging Tails Dock Diving Pool – Wagging Tails Connecticut Air Dog Club

Wagging Tails Pet Resort & Spaw is now home to a DOCK DIVING pool for dogs and Connecticut’s ONLY “Ultimate Air Dogs” Dock Diving Pool is right here in Wolcott! 

 If your dog LOVES to swim, loves to retrieve, and runs at amazing speeds, then join the Wagging Tails Connecticut Air Dogs Club! Your dog will LOVE dock diving!

 Is your dog full of energy and just jumping at the chance to expend it? Wagging Tails is proud to have a gorgeous, state of the art, fully certified Dock Diving Pool for Dogs.  Dock diving is a very popular, quickly growing sport for dogs of all shapes, ages and sizes.  Dogs run down a 40′ dock and compete to jump the furthest into the pool, the highest to retrieve a dangling toy, or the fastest to retrieve a floating toy.  Wagging Tails will host many dock diving events from May thru October each year. This family friendly sport is an awesome opportunity to bond with your dog, expend their energy, and meet other pet loving parents. 

Even Youth Handlers are encouraged to participate! Wagging Tails is a family run pet resort. Our pets are part of our family, and we strongly feel that dock diving is a family sport. So, having youths involved with their pets in this sport promotes teamwork, confidence, responsibility, patience and dedication. Kids AND their dogs will love participating in dock diving! 

During practices and competitions, Youth Handler must be accompanied by an adult on the dock, and must wear their own (you provide it) lifejacket. Since the pool is 4′ deep, Youth Handlers must be able to swim.

During practices and competitions, Youth Handlers ages 7 years and older do not have to have an adult on the dock, but must have a lifejacket on. At all times, Children are not allowed on the dock or in the pool unsupervised.

There is no smoking allowed on Wagging Tails property.  No female dogs in heat allowed on property. No e-collars or prong collars allowed in the pool/dock area. No retractable leashes. All dogs that enter the property, must be registered at the front desk, and owner must provide proof of rabies, parvo, distemper and bordetella vaccines.
