Entrance to the pool is via a waiting room overlooking the pool. Dogs can access the water via a gently sloping, non-slip ramp.
The water is heated to 28°C and is treated with a UV sterilizer that allows chemical treatment to be kept to a minimum, this is backed up by Bromine which is safer and kinder to skin and eyes than Chlorine.
There are two power jets to allow dogs to swim against a current and all dogs can swim wearing a buoyancy aid to assist them.
Not all dogs enjoy swimming - at first that is! We use gentle ways to encourage dogs to enter the pool, including treats, toys, fuss and lots of praise!
We like all owners to take part in the session by giving praise and encouragement and throwing toys for their dogs to retrieve.
Post swim showering and drying facilities adjoin the pool room and it is fully equipped with shampoo, brushes, drying cloths and towels and a powerful blaster dryer or gentler hair dryers should you prefer.
We have ample off-road parking and a small area is set aside to toilet your dog before swimming.
