Therapy pool for dogs
At Charlie's Dog Training Centre we have a fully equipped therapy pool for dogs, the pool is heated and is a non- chlorinated pool which we have found to be very beneficial in helping dogs with a variety of different problems. The pool is eight foot by six foot and four foot deep, dogs swim from a harness which is attached to three points keeping the dog in the current which is produced by three variable jets that pump water into the pool creating a current to which the dog swims against. This system enables us to control the swimming very effectively and allows us to swim any size of dog.
We also have a Jacuzzi that helps the more older arthritic dogs and helps to alleviate stiffness after operations or muscle strains. This piece of equipment has six variable jets that massages the dog with warm water, a Jacuzzi before and after a swim can greatly enhance the effects of swimming.
