When your dog arrives they will undergo an assessment before entering the pool. He or she will then be hoisted or lifted in to the pool. Your dog will then swim in the heated water and will be gradually introduced to the resistance jets. They will have two swims with a rest in between.
Please be aware all dogs differ and the standard program may vary.
