VIP Aqua dog and puppies
Dock Diving, pool party
Your first visit is an induction. The cost includes a safety induction and consultation with our hydrotherapist, for “up to” 30 minutes per dog.
Generally, inductions will be shorter. This allows us to take our time with especially nervous or anxious dogs. We recommend 30 minutes per dog as experience has taught us that both dogs and their owners benefit from a longer first session.
Solo Assisted swim
Assisted sessions are 30 minutes or 15 minutes long.
During these sessions, your dog will be assisted our lifeguards and Dog trainers.
These sessions are for any dog over 6 months that needs extra special care, as they maybe nervous, reactive, need extra space around other dogs, or, if you simply want the pool to yourself.
We encourage owners to join their dogs in the pool for fun and bonding but if you would rather have ourselves swim and play with your dog, we'll be happy to.
Additional dogs are allowed to attend sessions but MUST have completed an induction with an session before entering the pool.
60 minute inductions are also available, these are suitable for 2 large or 3 small breed dogs.
