Water levels in the Olympic Pool will be lowered and range from 1 to 3 feet to allow dogs to easily play and swim. There will be a staircase and ramp at the shallow ends to enable dogs and owners to easily enter and exit the pool. The shallow kiddie pool will be reserved for puppies and smaller dogs to allow them a safe, fun environment.
We have had six very successful events with over 150 dogs swimming last year! There were 63 breeds ranging from a 4-pound Teacup Chihuahua to a 240-pound Saint Bernard. Thanks to our responsible pet owners, there have been nothing but wags and slobbers all around. The common sense rules below are for everyone's safety so that we may have another wonderful year. Please do your part to help make Dippin' Dogs enjoyable for all.
