Event info: 

We can assure you that this is a NON intimidating, fun, friendly, family environment.  Wagging Tails host 4 to 7 competition weekend events each season. They are held rain or shine.  This is the opportunity for you, your dog, your family to meet other pet lovers, and enjoy a day by the pool watching these high (and low) flying dogs have a blast!  We make it a party!  Lunch is provided by WAGTAD each day of competition. Live music, raffles, lots of barking dogs and happy teams participate. Spectators are welcome and free.  However, we ask that spectators do not bring dogs that are not competing.

Friday nights before competitions allow WAGTAD Members Only to practice jump with their dogs.

Events are on Saturday and Sunday. You do not have to participate in both days. However, if your dog jumps far enough to make it into the finals, you do have to be present on Sunday afternoon to check in prior to the Finals commencement. On Saturday and Sunday,  there are Splashes, Chase It, Catch It and Fetch It events. You can sign up for one or all. As many events as you would like! Each dog gets 2 jumps per Splash/IT event.  The more you sign your dog up for, the more opportunity they have to extend their jump lengths and earn ribbons, rosettes and titles!
