The hydrotherapy pool area we swim in is only 4.5 ft. deep. Any deeper may put both your dog and the therapist at risk. We never force your dog into the pool and for those enthusiastic pups, we don’t allow them to jump off the edge of the pool. We also only allow one dog in the pool at a time. We gently encourage your dog to swim, when he or she is ready, not before. Your dog is never bullied.
