The benefits of swimming at The Dog Pool are so many but the heated water is a real plus. Swimming in cold water is not as beneficial as swimming in warm water. Cold water can cause cramps and the dogs will be a lot stiffer, it is also very painful for dogs when the cold gets into the bones and joints. The Dog Pool's water is controlled by a thermostat which is means that we can keep the water at a steady temperature, not too hot so it damages the dogs natural oil in their coats and not too cold to cause stiffness. We are members of The Canine Hydrotherapy Association and hold many courses here at The Dog Pool for The CHA.
Adjustable swim jets are just that! Jets that can alter the current in the water make swimming tougher going for the fitter dog.

  • Dogs can access the pool via a non slip ramp, which we are happy to train your dog to use if we feel it is safe for them or we will carefully lift your dog in and out of the pool if we feel it is better for your dog.

    For dogs who are unable to access the pool via the ramps we also have an electric hoist which quietly lifts the dog up and gently lowers the dog into the water.

  • After your dog has had a good swim we can shampoo him. We do stock a gentle and natural moisturising shampoo which leaves his coat beautiful, soft, clean and shiny

  • The pool is at waist height so no need to bend and stretch to see your dog and it gives a good opportunity to observe how your dog is doing.
