Fitness, fun and puppy swims
Fun & fitness swims for dogs
We offer fun and fitness sessions for dogs that just love to swim, need to maintain their fitness or for competiton dogs that need to be kept at their peak fitness level. Swimming in cold water, lakes, rivers and the sea can be dangerous due to poor blood circulation, objects hidden under the water, currents and dirty, poisonous water.
With us you can be assured your dog can have great fun and keep fit whilst in a safe and controlled environment and in water heated to 30 degrees Celsius.
Fun and fitness sessions can be owner led with the intial session being with yourself and a qualified hydrotherapist showing you the ropes and safety. From then on sessions are with the owner and a hydrotherapist as 'life guard'. Sessions are for 30 minutes including swimming, drying and changing and we ask that you adhere to this time as the pool will be required or our next client. These sessions at a reduced rate. Fun and fitness sessions can also be with a hydrotherapst if you prefer, which are charged as a normal hydrotherapy session.
Puppy and learn to swim sessions
You might be surprised to learn that not all dogs can swim initially so if you live near water or visit water it's a good idea to ensure your dog can swim. If you have a puppy that you'd like to teach to swim or if you'd like to be prepared in case your little one requires hydrotherapy in the future, we can teach your dog to swim and hopefully have fun in the process. Large breeds benefit from swimming as this is less strain on their joints espcially for young dogs.
These session are with a qualified hydrotherapist and we are happy for owners to join in on the fun too.
