Water work season is just around the corner and here are some things you can do to get ready:

  • Read the water trial manual (PWDCA manual can be found on the PWDCA website).
  • Practice foundation behaviors on land such as targeting, elements of the retrieve, basic obedience...
  • Make sure your gear is ready and add any new equipment that you might need for the upcoming season.
  • Don't forget  to make sure you have some yummy treats and fun floating toys on hand to reward your pup with.  Positive methods work best for our intelligent breed.

Have fun out there with your dogs and we hope to see you at the water!


Indoor swimming pools are great for conditioning and beginning training if you are lucky enough to have one in your area..

Perfect for the required 3 articles used in the Working level gear bag drag, our Limited Edition Gear Bags also have the pizzazz of some fun new 2016 fabric choices.  This would make a terrific personal beach bag, too!  And for those of you that prefer to stick with the classics, our standby Great Gear Bag is still available and never goes out of style.

We have some fabulous new fabric selections for our Limited Edition Courier Pouches.  If you like something a bit more understated, you can opt for our classic Courier pouches. The pouches come as a set of two and each foam filled, nylon pouches has a velcro strap for attaching to the dog's harness, and a rope to make it easy to carry in their mouth.

Celebrate the upcoming water season with a new padded water harness!  They also work well for activities like tracking and biking and come in an assortment of vibrant colors

This fabulous toy is great not only for retrieving, but for use as a secondary marker for those teaching the buoy ball drop exercise.
