  • Please ensure your dog does not eat 2-3 hours before swimming, and we advise you don't feed them for 1-2 hours afterwards, to avoid the risk of bloat, sickness or fouling the pool.

  • Your half hour session includes time taken entering and exiting the pool. You and your dog must exit the pool swiftly at the end of your session to allow for access to the pool for the next session. If you are late for your appointment you will lose part of your allotted time as we run a back to back appointment schedule. If we have no client in after your allotted time slot we may be able to carry over the lost time to make up for the late arrival, however, this is not guaranteed.

  • A 1 minute constant swim equates to a 1 mile run for your dog, therefore they will not and should not be encouraged to swim for more than a maximum of 10 minutes constantly.

  • You MUST inform us if your dog has a history of biting, is reactive, or unsociable. This does not preclude you from coming, it is simply to ensure the safety of staff and customers and the correct handling of your dog while you're with us. 

  • Any dog booked into a non-solo session, such as a Pool Pawty, showing signs of aggression to others will be asked to leave.

By confirming your booking with Doggy Paddle you are deemed to have accepted these terms and conditions.
