  • 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 sickness or fouling 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 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 walk for your dog, therefore they will not and should not be encouraged to swim for more than a maximum of 20 minutes continually.

  • 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.
