Book Swim Session

Here you can book a swimming session for your dog, you can book either a session in which you enter the pool with your dog (a member of staff will be on hand if you need them), or a staffed session in which a member of staff will go into the swimming pool with your dog. At this time we can not offer medical or hydrotherapy advice, however we are happy to assist your dog in the pool to get some extra exercise and maybe lose some weight, help mobility, learn to swim or just have great fun.

All of our offered sessions at present are on a individual basis, ie you will have the pool area to yourself. We have changing rooms and a shower within the pool room.

We can also offer a swim with day care (for registered day care users only), book via the day care page for your dog to receive a swim during their day care stay, available with 5 hour or all day bookings.

Before booking a session, where possible we recommend consulting a veterinarian if you have any concerns regarding your dog swimming or participating in the exercise that this entails. We do not accept any responsibility for injury occurring whilst at scoobys participating in the swim centre activities as we do not have access to any medical records or knowledge of health conditions your dog may have, we therefore can not offer any advice with regards to suitable activities. By booking/participating you are deemed to have read and accepted our terms & conditions of use.

 We should point out that once a session(s) of any length has begun, we are unable to refund or discount if your dog is completely unwilling to participate and enter the pool, however we are happy to persist for the full length of the booked time if required. We reserve the right to refuse handling of a dog that shows any dangerous aggression towards a member of staff.

Do not feed your dog a meal at least 90 minutes before and 60 minutes after the session, a stomach full of food can cause complications whilst swimming, especially in bigger dogs.

If your dog sheds a lot of hair, a quick brush before the session goes a long way towards helping our filter system keep the pool hair free, whilst brushing inspect your dogs skin to check for any open wounds or signs of infection that may be of concern. 

Please ensure your dog has had access to toilet facilities before entering the building, alert us if your dog has a toilet accident anywhere inside the building so we can clean it up thoroughly.

Should your dog empty their bowels in the pool we may have to cancel the following sessions to allow proper cleaning and sanitising of the pool before anyone else enters the water, PLEASE ENSURE YOUR DOG HAS EMPTIED THEIR BOWLS BEFORE THEIR SESSION, swimming in the pool WILL likely result in the loosening of a build up/constipation in the bowel. If your unsure whether your dog has emptied their bowel or concerned they are due to, we would rather you cancel than soil the pool and spoil the following sessions, thank you.

Sessions available:

Starter Session;  this session is aimed at first time users allowing a little extra time to get used to things, 30 minutes pool time, £25.00 first dog, each additional dog £12.00

20 minutes sessions is the maximum length of time recommended by a majority of governing bodies and experts within the hydrotherapy industry for the average healthy dog, most dogs we've had in the pool are showing signs of fatigue before 20 minutes.
