This is my 5m x 2m (16.4′ by 6.7′) above ground pool, with swim jets when required. The water is kept at a comfortable 30 degrees.
Water hygiene is extremely important. The chemical and PH balance are tested daily. The pool has a water purification system.
Access to the pool is via a ramp with a non-slip surface. The pool also has an internal ramp which helps with access into the water and a resting place between swims.
At little Barn Hydrotherapy I specialise in single hydrotherapy sessions where dogs swim in a 1 to1 safe, clean, warm environment. Each dog wears a float coat and has me in the pool working with them. This is the same for both hydrotherapy and fun swimming.
Dogs will be showered before and after their swim. They can then be towel dried by their owner.
We have a wide range of motivating toys, but please feel free to bring your own.
