Assisted Swimming

A professional canine swim coach works in the water with your dog to assist him/her with swimming, staying in the pool, or feeling comfortable and confident in the water. Depending on your dogs needs our swimming coaches will concentrate on physical theraphy, conditioning, motivation or open water/pool skills.

The first swim is always New Client Initial Swim so we can evaluate the dogs water/pool abilities.

Open Swims

Open Swims are for dogs that are able and motivated to swim and stay in the pool without a coach. It usually involves retrieving games, working with the treats or just swimming for pure enjoyment. If your dog is self motivated in the water he may qualify for Open Swims. Every dog must get qualified by our swim coaches before booking an OPEN Swims.

The swim sessions are private and by appointment only.

Why Warm Water Swimming?

For Wellness: Gentle physical stimulation and exercise can keep your elder or physically challenged dog healthy and comfortable, keeping muscles strong and essential body systems running smoothly.

For Weight Loss: Swimming is an ideal exercise for pudgy pooches. It’s a safe, low-impact way to burn calories and build muscle mass.

For Conditioning: Warm water swimming is the perfect solution for conditioning the canine athlete. Swimming is very efficient whole-body exercise. With the water providing resistance, a five-minute swim is equivalent to about a five-mile run. A challenging but low-impact workout, swimming keeps your dog in peak condition for trials while sparing joints. As an added benefit, warm water and hands-on bodywork relaxes muscles and promotes healing by increasing blood and oxygen flow, facilitating post-competition recovery.

For Fun: Some dogs just love swimming. Let your dog swim in a controlled environment while you keep him going with our toys. You stay warm, enjoy a cup of tea, and Rover gets a great workout. Or try out a couple of swim lessons to ensure your dog has water safety skills!
