A family friendly dog dock  jumping organization

New to Dock Jumping?

If you just want to try it out, or simply practice 9/25 not compete, you can still show up at a local event!

Check in at the registration table, pay $10 per day per dog to practice between Splashes.

Availability is at the discretion of the HRAD staff.

If our Splashes are full, competitors that need to practice their dogs always come first.

We also have dedicated first time Try-It Sessions scheduled every month from May-October.

See our Events and Registration page for details!

Registration is now open for the UAD event, in Clayton,NY on June 16-18th.


Site development work is moving along nicely! However, due to the amount of work, and amount of rain, the site will not be ready for foot traffic by the previously scheduled May 13th Try-It session.  Therefore, the first Try-It has been Canceled at this time.

However, the first event of the season will still be going on as scheduled!  During our events we do have some limited Try-It time between Splashes (availability determined by the Registration Secretary on the day of the event.)

To our members, we have not scheduled the official pool opening date (still pending some development work). But we'll be sure to e-mail (and Facebook) everyone when that is known.


Schedule update: The Dash To the Big Splash At HRAD will be held August 26-27. This will be the northeast regional qualifier for the Ultimate Air Games at Purina Farms. You must attend this event to have a chance to be invited.

Autumn Air 2017 will be held September 23-24.

We apologize for any inconvenience. UAD needs time to put everything together for the Big Splash. Our regional will be held no later than the end of August every year from this year forward


Membership registration is Now Open.  The pool/site opening date currently depends on site development work.  But it should happen by mid-May at the latest (hopefully). Please be understanding while this development gets underway.
