                                    When to NOT Swim your Dog.

There is very little that would stop a dog from swimming.

*If your dog is bleeding either internally or externally, ie: Heat cycle, Wound, Incompletely healed surgical site, or any other reason.

*If your dog has had surgery, they cannot swim until after the stitches and or staples are removed, and the site is 'pinked over'.


*We tailor each swim to each individual dog. We need to be aware of any medical issue your dog may have, this will allow us to properly address their issues and tailor their swim accordingly.  We swim a lot of dogs with a wide array of medical needs. It is surprising how beneficial warm, deep water swimming is for a variety of problems.
