Humans can also go along of course, either as spectators if you don’t plan to actually swim with your dog but to stand on the side or you can get human swimming tickets too if you plan to join your dog in the water.

Getting ready to dive in!
Pups, please remember the rules:
  • If your Human wants to swim with you, then they’ll need a Human Swim ticket, but if you prefer them to stand at the poolside and throw a toy, then a Spectator ticket is fine.
  • For H&S reasons, under-16s aren’t allowed in the pool. This applies to Humans only!
  • Under-16 Humans are welcome with a spectator ticket and can play with you from the poolside.
  • There is an absolute Zero Tolerance policy towards aggression, so if either you or your Human growl or snarl, you’ll both be asked to leave.
  • And of course, it goes without saying that we assume you’ve got your Human trained to pick up after you.
  • Feel free to bring a ball or toy – there’s lots of grass to run around on and there will be a security gate in place again for safety.
