The Soggy Dog Co.
How do we do it?
We're all about having a lot of fun and play so it doesn't even seem like learning. We will take even the most nervous fur child and introduce them at a pace they're happy with and slowly build up to a full on, unaided, splash around. If we need to carry them around the pool to get those little legs kicking, we’re totally up for that. At no point will we let your precious 4 legged family member be in any danger.
What if my dog can already swim? Is this for me?
YES!! ABSOLUTELY!! Fancy a pool party with their friends? How about exclusive use or just a bit of exercise? Swimming is the best activity a dog can do due to its very low impact on joints. Just 5 minutes of swimming is the equivalent of a 30 minute walk! This also makes it a perfect activity for older dogs that need that extra TLC. We don’t profess to be trained hydro therapists however we do have a lot of experience with dogs in water and we will be providing a safe, controlled environment for your young at heart pup. We will even provide doggy life jackets to give you that extra peace of mind.
How about a puppy school?
OH YES! Bring us your puppies!! Wait that sounds weird…we don’t mean in a sinister Cruella de Vil way! Let’s start again! We LOVE LOVE LOVE pups and giving them the skills to live a safe, happy life enjoying the water is an amazingly rewarding experience for us too. We will warn you though, bring the tissues, if you don’t well up at seeing them take their first few kicks and splashes, we certainly will do! It never gets old seeing that first moment of pure joy on their and your faces at achieving something new! We just ask they’ve had all their jabs and are cleared to play with other dogs.
Want to get in too? Jump straight in!
Our pool is perfect for owners who have always wanted to swim with their dogs but never had the opportunity to do so. We have a ramp and stairs to get in and you will be able to walk or swim around with ease. We will be right there with you too giving advice and support. Just make sure you bring a towel and a change of clothes otherwise it will be a soggy journey home. Believe us, we’ve been there!
What if my dog really doesn't like it?
We will give you an honest assessment that maybe they’re more landlubbers than water dogs. We will do everything we can to bring out that bravery but water just isn’t for some and we won’t put them under any stress to do something they don’t want to. Dogs do however have off days like us and if they don’t want to go in on their first try we will give you 50% off your next visit to try again. You would be amazed how many seem terrified on their first visit but then second time around are chomping at the bit to get in. We won’t give up!
Where can you find us?
Keep a close eye on our social media for upcoming venues hosting us and our pool! We have a number of events, dog clubs and day care centres interested in having us visit for the 2019 season and we’re also in talks with a number of shows up and down the country who want to get involved in something that little bit different. If you run any of these places and would like us to come to you then all you have to do is ask. We love to travel!
We also welcome home bookings for pool parties which include all set up, water filtration and staffing. You just provide the water and away we go! Why not invite all of your friends and families pooches over and have a day of play in the water? They’ll love you for it!
We look forward to splashing with you soon!
