Dog Pools vs. Human Pools

With plenty of room to swim, jump, and splash around, it is no secret that doggy daycares and hotels with swimming pools for pups are extremely popular. The ability to offer a large, clean pool for our furry friends and family members to enjoy and splash around 7 days a week is a booming new trend in doggy daycare.

Heated pools are sometimes available to canine guests during open swim times for those wanting to socialize with other dogs and their owners. Some pools also allow private reservations – a great option for trainers, rehabilitation, pooch parties, and dogs that simply prefer having the pool to themselves!


A 21′ x 41′ pool is the ideal size for dogs. In this environment, you are able to heat and sanitize the water through a circulation pump. A specially designed in-line electric heater and a high-rate sand filtration system assist in this process.

While standard swimming pools come in many different shapes and sizes, doggy pools tend to be more shallow and require slightly different equipment to ensure cleanliness when dog fur and dander are introduced. There are many breeds of dogs that enjoy water and swimming.

Below are a few other popular boarding/daycare amenities for dogs:

Dog grooming

From brushing and basic bath to nail clipping and oral hygiene, service providers can customize a program that can have your dog looking great and smelling fresh. Frequent grooming and bathing will also lead to less shedding and provide your dog with healthier skin. The services are not only available to overnight or daycare guests but are also offered in between visits to keep your furry friend looking his best.

Secure Outdoor Spaces

The boarding/daycare dog facilities have outdoor spaces that are secured for your dog’s safety. Your dog will get the optimum amount of exercise and play for his/her mental and physical health. Your dog will also have a lot of similarly-sized playmates to play with; however, individual play is also offered to dogs that are older or less social. The highly skilled workers regularly monitor the play area, making sure your dos experience is safe and enjoyable.

With the help of a team committed solely to workouts for your canine, you can rest easy knowing that your dog is not simply at home, sleeping the day away. Dog handlers at doggy daycares are skilled and passionate people, who choose to commit their time, both professionally and personally, with family pets.

Webcam Access

For most dog parents, leaving their dog can be a stressful experience. That is why these facilities provide webcam access to help owners check in on their furry friends. Whether you are traveling or away for the day, you can keep an eye on your pooch as he makes new friends and has fun. You might even get to sneak a peek of your pooch in the pool!

Spa Services

A day at the spa is an important part of any getaway. Since your dog will love his own vacation while at the boarding/daycare facility, ensure you include spa services as part of his stay. Your dog will be happy and clean when you go to pick him up.

Dog Care

Kennel technicians are in charge of maintaining the dogs’ health and comfort. Their responsibilities include taking detailed notes and coming up with care plans, feeding, cleaning throughout the day, looking after the dog’s needs as they emerge, and medicating. Boarding/daycare facility technicians care for the dogs the entire day or at night, or even both. These technicians must have a high level of experience.

Dog pools help stimulate & engage

If dogs are not engaged, busy, and active, they get bored. Boredom can cause behavior issues like chewing, barking, and digging. Without frequent workouts, dogs can get overweight, which has an impact on their quality of life and decreases their life spans. Dog pools in doggy daycares or hotels are ideal for providing exercise and stimulation in large doses!
