Remember those pictures of all the dogs swimming and splashing at the Saltdean Lido Dog Swim last year for the end of season swim? No, well here’s a reminder to make you smile if you didn’t see it last year. Don’t they look like they are having the best time ever! Well, good news…the Saltdean Lido Dog Swim 2018 is back again this year on 15th and 16th September and makes for a pawsome ‘Dogs Day Out’ from London.
*** Update: We went along to the Saltdean Lido Dog Swim on 15th September, read all about it here. ***
Last year tickets sold out super quick so it’s no surprise that there are only a few Saltdean Lido Dog Swim tickets left for Saturday 15th September. At the time of writing this post, there are still tickets for Sunday 16th September for all slots. So be quick if you want to get your paws on some!
Whether your pup is a super swimmer or a pawsome paddler, they’re bound to enjoy this fabulous chance to swim at this stunning art deco lido. There’s also a kids pool and wet play area for dogs that aren’t confident to go in the big pool. The Saltdean Lido Dog Swim 2018 event is a fundraiser to help with the upkeep of this beautiful pool so you can feel good about that too!
To keep things under control at the Saltdean Lido Dog Swim 2018 (kind of), there are some rules. Saltdean Lido says…
“If your adult human wants to swim with you, they’ll need a human swim ticket. But if you’ve trained them to stand on the poolside and throw a toy, then a spectator ticket for them is fine. Every one of you needs to bring an adult human on your lead and for your comfort, we can’t allow mini-humans in the pool”
