Canine Swimming Pool for Exercise and Rehab
In the spring of 2018, we opened Happy Waves! In order to address the growing need within the community for lower-impact forms of exercise, and to provide a unique and fun service to the Greater Portland area, we installed a 13’ x 25’ indoor, heated pool.
As a part of your dog’s daycare day, you can sign your pup up for a “Fun Swim,” guided and supervised by one of our trained staff members. This is a great way to introduce dogs to swimming in a pool, or to fulfill the desires of those water-crazed dogs that can never get enough swim time! Veterinary clearance is required prior to setting up a swim session, for safety’s sake!
Daycare Add-on Pricing: Daycare Clients can add a FUN SWIM for $20 for 20 minutes of swim-time or 10 Swims for $180.00
Pool Use Only: Initial Consult 30-50 mins ($50), includes staff member evaluating your dog with being handled, interest in water and physical abilities. **Following FUN SWIMS will be approximately 20 mins at $35 per session.
In addition to our fun-swim swims, we have partnered with Dr. Christine Fraser, the former state Veterinarian to provide hydrotherapy and rehab options to injured or geriatric dogs, year round! Our heated pool and state-of-the-art underwater treadmill offer many options for safe exercise for recovering dogs!
