Swim Categories and Rates:

Because my first concern is the health, happiness and well-being of your dog, all new clients must go through an Assessment Swim – click here to read about: What is an Assessment Swim?

 

Assessment Swim: fee: $125

At the end of your dog’s Assessment Swim, we will discuss the best category of Swim Care for your dog.

Sign on and pay for a 10 swim package and receive a 10% discount.

Injury Recovery: This swim is appropriate for the seniors, arthritic, overweight, pre/post-surgical dog.

  • As our dogs age, they cannot go on those long walks any longer.  Swimming will replace those walks as swimming is non-weight bearing and helps to build up those leg muscles.
  • For a dog recuperating from surgery, a dog’s leg muscles may atrophy due to lack of exercise.  Swimming, non-weight bearing, can help rebuild their leg muscles.

As your dog rests on the platform in the water, a light massage and stretching is included.  Their breathing and heart rate is closely monitored.

This category will require your vet’s written approval – no exceptions. DOWNLOAD Veterinary Approval Form
Individual/Single Swim: $85
Purchase a 10-swim package and receive a 10% discount.

Swim Your Non-Confident Dog: Contrary to popular belief, not all dogs can swim instinctively or even enjoy it. We work with your dog to build their confidence, helping them get over their fear of the water, and have fun doing it!

Each dog is different.  Some get over their fears during their Assessment Swim … and you will see this as well!  For some, it takes longer … as in the video of Elvis.  Elvis took 9 separate swims before he was comfortable and started having fun.  Today, he is an expert dock-diver.  (At first, we could not get him in the water ….. today, we cannot keep him out!)

By the end of the Assessment Swim, you will see your dog’s swim improvement.
