Starter swim session: 30 minutes pool time
From experience we find that in their first session, most dogs will be hesitant even if they are good swimmers, this is usually just the new place/pool making them a little unsure. This 30 minute session is to allow them time to acclimatise to the surroundings and the pool entry.
Once they have entered the water with encouragement and maybe a helping hand lifting them in, they become more confident each time they are guided for a swim around the pool and back to the exit ramp, its once your dog becomes accustomed to being able to exit easily up the ramp they become a lot more confident and will start to venture in of their own accord.

The temperature of the pool is set to 32c, once in use it generally sits at around 30c.
Changing rooms are available within the pool area.
There is a warm shower available for you to rinse your dog after their swim (if you require a full wash/shampoo after the session, this will be need to be booked in our dedicated dog wash area and will be subject to an additional charge) we have towels available to dry the dogs, if you intend to go in the pool yourself please bring a towel.
A quick brush of your dogs coat before your appointment and a rinse in our shower before they get in goes a long way towards preventing excess hair shedding in the pool.
Please remember its important that your dog has emptied their bowels recently before the session to avoid soiling of the pool and CANCELLING of other peoples appointments for cleaning and sanitising.
