Swim Orientation: At your dog's swim orientation we determine their life jacket size, level of swim ability, and next steps for their swim sessions. Your dog is taught how to safely get in and out of the water using the ramp. Some dogs may jump right in, while others may take multiple sessions to get acclimated to the water.
Private Swim: Private swim sessions are for dogs who are not as confident in the water yet, who may not get along as well with other dogs, or for owners who just prefer a more relaxed and private session. Private swims are required for all dogs who are not independent in the water yet. They will have 2 staff members assisting them in the water and encouraging them to swim. Any dog that is not yet independent in the water will need to be the only dog in the pool for their session. If you have multiple dogs in the same household that are all independent, you may book a private sessions for up to 4 dogs of the same household at once.
Open Swim: Any dog participating in open swim must be independent in the water. During open swim there may be dogs from other households swimming with your dog. The maximum capacity of open swimmers is 4 dogs per session. You may bring 2 dogs from the same household to participate in open swim at once. If you would like to bring more than 2 dogs from the same household we ask that you book a private swim session instead. We ask all owners booking an open swim to be slightly flexible with times as we will do our best to match dogs up by swimming ability, temperament, energy level, and size.
