Indoor Hydrotherapy Pool
Did you know that swimming is one of the best forms of physiotherapy available? This is because the body is weightless in water, but the muscles are still being worked. There is no hard impact so it is safe for most dogs recovering from surgery.
With this in mind, our purpose built, heated indoor swimming pool is ideal for those dogs who are either recovering from an injury or after an operation, or for older dogs with arthritic limbs as well as those dogs who just absolutely love to swim.
Our pool is 14 metres long, 3 metres wide and ranges in depth between 1.2m to 1.5m, with ramp access in and out.
Your dog will enjoy diving off the edge of the pool and into the water to fetch his or her toy, or for the more serious swimmer, doing laps.
All dogs using the indoor pool for the first time require an assessment. These are done by our swim instructor Annie.
Outdoor Lagoon Pool
Because some dogs prefer a natural environment for swimming, the outside solar heated lagoon style pool is designed to provide stimulation with grass, rocks, sand and trees. It has a shallow entry so dogs can wade in the water at a comfortable level.
It also allows owners to join their dogs in the shallow areas (up to the blue line) so you can both experience the fun.
Both the indoor heated pool and the lagoon outdoor pool enable us to offer the best swimming conditions for both recreational and rehabilitation purposes.
Dog doesn’t swim?
Not a problem….Swimming Lessons are avaliable for your dogs.
Believe it or not, not all dogs are born with the natural ability to swim.
