What type of training are you looking for? Dock jumping is easy. If the dog likes water & will chase a toy, you are half way there.
Go to your local watering hole and give the dog some drive. Throw the toy in the water & send the dog after the object.
If you can get the dog to sit & stay some times helps get the dog more excited. Give the dog a release command. Keep the command simple with one word.
After you have gone thru those basic steps you can go to a splash dogs event & work the dog off the dock.
Let us know were you are at with your training and what your goals are.
Please feel free to post and ask questions.
Good luck and happy jumping.
Remember to keep it safe.

Get her out to a dock as much as you can. The more she has the opportunity the higher her confidence level will be around the dock.
Other than that - not sure what other issues you are having.

Their is a dock on the American river down for the rainbow bridge at negro bar entrance. Just be careful of nails in the dock.
The dock is a little shorter than regulation but it will get you started.
Check out the next Splash dogs event. There will be some trainers to help you out if you need.
Good luck jumping.
