Meet our Trainers

They are also known as Wasatch K-9 Fitness and Training.

A note from our Trainers:

Hello!  We are Craig and Theresa Foster,  the humans behind Wasatch K9 Fitness and Training. We got involved in dock diving in 2009. Our black lab, Herky, loved jumping off rocks into rivers and lakes, so we entered him in a local dock diving competition. Since then, we’ve been part of the dock diving community, first as volunteers at local events and now as certified North America Diving Dog judges.

You may have seen us on Fox13 News with Big Buddha, KSL news, as well as in the Salt Lake Tribune and Deseret News newspapers. 


We help dogs of all breeds gain the confidence to go off the dock for the first time and compete while helping their humans gain confidence and find joy in working with their dogs.

We have eight dogs that enjoy dock diving and participating in other dog sports.  Addis was the #1 ranked Belgian Malinois with North America Diving Dogs in 2020. Addis and Calypso were both in the top ten for 2021 Belgian Malinois. Sky is a 2-time super vertical national champion with Splash Dogs, and Hayden has received invites to, competed in, and placed at multiple national championships. We can’t forget Mojo, the token lap dog, who took 2nd in the lapdog division at the 2018 Splash Dog National Championship.
