Requirements

Proof of current vaccinations is required for all dogs. Dogs must be up-to-date on Rabies and Distemper.

To avoid breaking nails on the pool mats, we recommend that the dogs nails be trimmed.  

What to bring:

  • Proof of vaccinations. Rabies and Distemper. Be sure we have them on file before checking in.  We recommend bordetella and a fecal parasite exam.
  • Your dogs favorite pool toy
  • Pool clothes (optional) - Your dogs introduction to the pool will be much more successful if you, as the human, lead by example. 

What to Expect

If your dog doesn't have a lot of experience, come prepared to get in the water with him. He will be much more comfortable with his favorite human by his side.  

Swimming takes a lot of energy. Don't be surprised if your dog is ready for a long nap after their swim. They'll be tired from their full-body exercise. Be sure to have fresh water available to them as they may be thirsty.
