Why Swim your canine?
Swimming is one of the best exercise options available. It is low impact and uses nearly every muscle.
Statistics show over 50% of canines are over weight. This option allows dogs to start exercising without the added weight "weighing" them down.
It also helps canine athletes continue to build muscle tone, increase cardiovascular fitness, loosen joints, relax muscles, and increase flexibility. It has also proven to be helpful to manage osteoarthritis, neurological issues, and allow dogs to recover from surgery faster.
Future plans: At some point we hope to complete the natural swimming pond we broke ground on in the Spring of 2015, The pond will have a swimming area over 50 foot long, four foot deep, and 20 foot wide (meeting regulations for organizations such as Ultimate Air Dogs). We will also have the space to put in a full size (40 foot) dock. Natural swimming ponds have the clarity of swimming pools, without all the chemicals. It uses plants, water movement, and rocks for natural filtration. We feel this is the best option for starting to bring opportunity to the area. The natural swimming pond will feature a four-sided beach entry to allow dogs to slowly enter the water. This beach entry will bring the pond size up to 80 foot long by 50 foot wide. The additional size is part of the reason for the delays. Although it has added time to the construction phase we know it will be worth it in the end.
