Swimming at Canine Creature Comforts is not only fun, but a great form of exercise! With a specially designed ramp to allow any size dog to enter the pool comfortably, our fenced outdoor swimming pool was created with your dog's safety and comfort in mind. Whether your pup likes to do backstrokes and really dive in, or just bask in the sun on our attached deck, we can make sure they have a good time! We offer swimming both as an individual exercise, as well as a group play activity – see below for details!
Why is swimming so good for your dog? Swimming offers dogs a low-impact way to exercise that's easy on the joints and helps to strengthen muscles. Here at CCC, we always stress the importance of physical & mental stimulation to create a more well-balanced pup - so this will do just the trick, especially when added to daycare!
TRAINING: DOGGIE PADDLE (For Daycare & Boarding Clients)
All first-timers in our pool must attend a training session first. It is imperative that your dog learns how to use our custom ramp to get in and out of the pool safely. Our swim instructor will spend one-on-one time with your dog in the pool to teach him techniques to keep him safe & happy during all future swims.
PRIVATE SWIM: ANGELFISH (For Daycare & Boarding Clients)
This is for any dog who needs more individual attention or prefers not to share the pool toys with other dogs! Your dog will have the advantage of spending one-on-one time with us in the pool. This private time includes playing in the pool with various toys, swimming, jumping – and, of course, splashing!
GROUP SWIM: SCHOOL OF FISHIES (For Daycare Clients Only)
While here for daycare, your dog will spend part of her day playing and swimming in the pool with us, as well as with her daycare pals. Be aware that some daycare dogs do not do well in a group swim environment. This is usually due to over excitement & stimulation or an unwillingness to share pool toys. If this is observed during your dog’s group swim time, it will be brought to your attention and we may recommend you switch to private swims to better accommodate your dog.
