This is my new 5m x 2m (16.4′ by 6.7′) above ground pool, with swim jets when required. The water will be kept at a comfortable 30 degrees.
Water hygiene is extremely important. The chemical and PH balance are tested three times a day. 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 either a harness or life jacket 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 are then dried with either the drier or a towel.
We have a wide range of motivating toys, but please feel free to bring your own.
Little Barn Hydrotherapy is located on the main road at Eaton Bishop, 5 miles out of Hereford near Madley on the Hay-on-Wye road. This gives easy access for people living in Hereford and surrounding areas such as Abergavenny, Hay, Leominster.
There is plenty of parking and an area for your dog to relieve themselves before their swim.
