This is a two-week class for adult dogs to learn to swim, build confidence, and be socialized to our swim center and grooming services. Dogs will be taught to wear a life jacket, develop their swimming technique, and retrieve toys in the water. Motivational games will be used to encourage your dog to swim enthusiastically. We will also cover proper handling techniques for bathing, drying and brushing out your dogs.

PREREQUISITES: For adult dogs – 16 weeks of age and older. Each dog is worked individually during this class, so dogs must be comfortable resting in a crate during other dogs’ swim sessions.  Must be comfortable being picked up or handled by people. Must have passed a basic manners class that was structured with positive reinforcement and is choice-based with the use of food or instructor approval. Our program uses high rates of reinforcement to achieve success and to build a strong relationship with your dog. No pinch collars, choke collars or flex-leashes are allowed in our facility. The only leash aids that are allowed are a Gentle Leader head halter, Sensation Harness, or Comfort Flex harness.

*PLEASE NOTE:  This class is not eligible for Membership discounts and coupon codes.
