Over the Rainbow at Ocala Dog Ranch
The Dusk till dawn, the NADD event in Ocala...
The Ocala Dog Ranch continues to be an ever more regular haunt for us. For good reason! The rural facility run by Neil Hennessey and his gang is organized, clean and very active with constant events from agility and disc dog to dock diving..
The last weekend of September 2018 was no different. Bad Azz Pups from all over converged on this popular venue and were watched by folks from Ocala to Hamburg, Germany.. From the crack of dawn, yaps and barks grew as the event began. Every breed and size compete in both distance and height measured jumps (or "Splashes") with new personal bests and ribbons brining cheers from the crowd on regular basis.
We are members of the Pet Professional Guild and we only utilize force free, pain free methods which means we won't use prong collars, choke chains or shock collars to train your dog. - Ocala Dog Ranch
Photographer Dana Wimpfheimer was on hand for both days to catch all the action and has a wonderful gallery available for all to review and make purchases of their favorite pics. https://www.danawimpfheimerphotography.com/
As with all NADD (North America Diving Dogs) events, strict record keeping and tracking of the contestants jumps is both meticulous and taken very seriously. The NADD Rules encompass and progressive path for all contestants from the newest pup getting wet for the first time, to seasoned veterans catching record air time.

Dock Diving has evolved a very long way from hot ranch and farm dogs jumping into local lakes to a network of events and even a portable dock to bring the action to most anywhere in the country. There's a lot of debate as to when exactly it officially began as a sport but one thing we do know? The pups and people just love it!
