Our Pool is now OPEN!
We have created a friendly facility where clients can come to help their dogs feel their best, while having fun!
Of course our pool is what makes us unique, but we have much more to offer!
Our Pool is kept at a toasty 85 degrees all year. It features two slip resistant ramps, a dock, a floating island for core strengthening and a turf covered deck.
Here we perform hydrotherapy for dogs recovering from injury, surgery, decreased mobility and arthritis.
Clients also bring dogs to the pool to learn to swim, dock dive, gain confidence, burn energy, loose weight, gain muscle strength and have fun.
We have a quiet massage area for dogs to relax and enjoy as skilled hands massage away muscle tension, stress points and spasms.
Our wonderful Chiropractor shares this area as she helps to realign dogs who have subluxations in their neck, spine or limbs. She also uses a class B laser if required to help reduce swelling, pain and decrease healing time.
There is a treadmill to help burn energy, build stamina and bone density.
We have a physio/ gym area for dogs to learn body awareness and build core strength.
We are the Eastern Canadian distributor for Handicapped Pets, Walkin Wheels, Ruff and Tumble Drier Coats and Fitbone products.
There is an assortment of life jackets (we have the greatest selection in all of Ontario) water toys, and mobility aids available on site as well.
Curious to see our facility? Call us to book a tour!
