The Dog Pool Hydrotherapy Rehabilitation and Fitness Centre
The Dog Pool is a purpose built hydrotherapy pool for dogs.
This is what makes it
so special, it has been designed especially for dogs. We have a specially designed ramp for access for the able dogs, a
hoist for those less able and those timid and frail are assisted in by trained staff. A massive 6.1m by 3.1m oval
pool. The pool is 1.4m deep so even the largest of breeds are catered for. We like to see the dogs actually swimming
in the pool. Our pool is oval and sunken half way into the ground this way the dogs can naturally swim around no sharp
turns. We work at hip height, the natural height for most dogs. This way we can observe the dogs when
they are in the water and keep a close eye on their movements. The pool is not just a plain swimming pool. it has jets, which
are used for extra resistance when needed, to enable even the fitest of dogs to improve. The water is kept heated throughout
the year and we have doggy driers available so no one needs to go home wet.
