Dock jumping is a dog sport in which dogs compete in jumping for distance, height or speed into a pool. Harvard's K-9 Center has a regulation size dock and pool. Swimming and jumping lessons are available for all levels from new swimmers to competition jumpers. The dock is available for individual or group rental. The pool may also be rented for therapeutic swimming. We provide life vests.
Special classes (Fetch-It and new swimmers and jumpers) will be held periodically on Saturdays during the season. Dates will be announced on Facebook and the website. Usually, $25 for an hour.
Regular lessons are usually held on Wednesday afternoon/evening and all day Sunday. Classes are 6 weeks and cost $150.
Please read the dock rules before you come to classes, competition or for pool rental. Print and sign a copy of the waiver to bring to us when you come.
