If you are anywhere in the Amador, Calaveras, Folsom or the greater Sacramento/Stockton area and are interested in getting your pooch involved in dock diving, we have just the place. Gold Country Pet Resort & Training Center
in Ione, Amador County, has opened a regulation-size DockDogs
diving pool and will soon have Splash Dogs
certification, as well.
You can board your dog while you're traveling and include aquatic adventures in their canine vacation. Or, come out for the day with your water-loving pooch and watch him have a ball. The resort holds open Dock Dog Diving Drop-Ins
from noon to 6 p.m. weekends; cost is $20 for as many jumps as your pooch wants to take, first come, first served. Introductory classes are offered for beginners to assist dogs in learning to enter and exit the water.
Once your dog can navigate the dog ramp, she's welcome to join in the aquatic fun.
