Why is swimming good for my dog?

Swimming is the perfect activity for all dogs, young or old, those with physical limitations or injuries, be it old joints, too much weight, or post surgery.  It provides a non weight bearing activity that avoids all the stresses and strains on joints, and is a complete workout that offers both muscle toning and aerobic benefits.

Water therapy is proven to be beneficial for numerous conditions:

  • Obesity and weight management
  • Hip and elbow dysplasia
  • Spinal injuries and paralysis
  • Cruciate ligament problems
  • Post operative muscle regeneration and maintenance
  • Sprains and breaks
  • Relief of pain, swelling, arthritis, and stiffness
  • Improvement of circulation and joint mobility
  • Great for general fitness and for when normal exercise is restricted. Good conditioning for agility, racing and working dogs and SWIMMING JUST FOR FUN!
