Furry Fun at Dog Day at the Pool!

It’s time, once again, for the biannual Dog Day at the Pool! On Saturday, September 23rd, Los Encinos Swimming Pool in McAllen will be filled with furry friends looking to make a splash. Bring your dog’s favorite toys for a party that’s sure to be off the leash!

Can Dogs Swim?

While most dogs have a natural ability to swim, others need an extra comforting nudge to step in the water. Like humans, dogs can be frightened by new experiences and may feel anxious or nervous near water. No matter what, swimming for dogs can be a great pastime as long as you’re there with them! For extra safety, buying a doggie life jacket will help your furry companion stay afloat easier. A few swimming benefits for your dog include:

  • Exercise
  • Playtime
  • Cooling Down
  • Therapeutic Motions
