Dog Splash has been in operation since March 2014. We have an established facility at our home in Canberra.
The need to create a heated dog pool came about due to our gorgeous Airedale Terrier girl named Leni, who we discovered at an early age had hip dysplasia in both her hips. We searched for an exercise that would assist her in keeping fit and discovered the benefits of swimming. There was no facility in our area and we began traveling interstate. After seeing first hand the benefits Leni had from swimming we decided to convert our pool to be heated and with ramps for easy access in and out. The pool is also covered by a solar dome, which allows for swimming all year round.
I attended a hydrotherapy course in November 2013 through NSW Tafe at K9 Swim Centre, Londonderry, and in addition have two years hands on experience.
We would like to invite other dog owners, who feel that swimming their dog would be beneficial, to use our facility. For dogs who have medical conditions we advise checking with your veterinarian or canine physio before making a booking. Please see the booking page for further information.
