Swimming

An active pooch is a happy pooch

In 2005, the first warm water aquatic exercise pool for dogs in Alberta was custom built right here at Pawsitively Pooched. Our pool is 8 feet by 20 feet, and 3 1/2 feet deep. The water is heated to approximately 90 Fahrenheit in all seasons.

Recreational Swimming

Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the appointment to fill out the paperwork. If this is a therapeutic swim, please have your vet fax us a letter of recommendation prior to the swim so our practitioner can review your dog's history. If you would like, bring a towel and a camera. Progress is tracked at the end of each set of sessions and shared with your veterinarian.
