Before they get their paws wet



For the safety of all dogs visiting our swimming pool, all dogs must be vaccinated or titered for rabies, distemper, hepatitis, parvo virus, parainfluenza (DA2P or DHPP). We also recommend bordetella (kennel cough), but this is not required. Discuss the risks with your veterinarian.

  • Remember to sign in at the front desk so we know you’re here!
  • Please do not enter the gated pool area without permission.
  • Please keep the gates in the facility closed. They can only do their job if they’re closed and latched.  No need to slam, though.
  • Dogs and ALC personnel only on the ramp, please.
  • If your dog is especially dirty, please ask to have him rinsed off or bathe your dog prior to visiting our facility.
  • If we ask you to do something, please comply. We don’t make stuff up for the heck of it. 
  • We are an on-leash facility, meaning dogs must be leashed at all times outside the gated pool area.
  • You are responsible for your dog and his behavior while in the facility, including your dog’s interaction with other dogs. Please pay attention to your dogs at all times.
  • No throwing dogs in the pool.  You will be asked to leave immediately.
  • We reserve the right to remove aggressive dogs and humans from the premises.
  • No food, drinks or treats in the pool area.
  • Please feed your dog several hours before swimming or after swimming.
  • All dogs must visit the relief area prior to entering the pool.  No exceptions.
  • There is a $25-50 per incident fee for Code Browns (poop
    in the pool)
  • Repeated accidents in the pool will result in a pool ban for your dog.
  • All children must be accompanied and controlled by an adult at all times.
  • NO RUNNING BY HUMANS on deck or around pool.  Let your dogs do the running.
  • No kids or adults in the pool. Dogs only, please. We have a zero tolerance policy for this one.

Remember, you are completely responsible for the care, conduct and actions of your dog while they’re at the facility. Be a good advocate for them and only put them in situations they can handle.

We built and designed our pool with your dog in mind

The pool is 14′ x 22′ to allow plenty of room to swim, fetch, and chase. Our water management standards are high but not damaging to your dog’s skin and coat. We don’t use chlorine or salt. The pool water is filtered, heated and sanitized through a specially-designed circulation pump, in-line electric heater, and a high-rate sand filtration system. It’s like swimming in bottled water!

Your Dog's Initial Swim

We are no longer accepting new clients for recreation-only services (fun swims/fun gyms). If you believe your dog has a mobility issue, please complete the form below and we will contact you to discuss your dog’s needs. Thank you for your understanding!

We want to make sure your dog’s first swim is a great experience. We’ll get you and your dog acquainted with the pool, the deck, the ramp and all the rules and safety precautions. We also want to make sure your dog can swim and if not, fit him for a life jacket.

We will not force your dog into the water. For some dogs, this is a slow process. For new and inexperienced swimmers, we’ll take it at their pace. In some cases, this may mean your dog doesn’t actually get into the water. Please be patient with your dog (and us!)

All swim sessions are by appointment only. Even if your dog has swim experience, we’ll introduce your dog to our ramp and the water in the calm of a private session.

All dogs must have proof of core vaccinations (DA2P or DHPP).  Please bring those to your first swim.
