Dog Gone Smart has a heated indoor swimming pool where dogs of all sizes and breeds can play and swim all year round! Swimming is the perfect activity for all dogs young or old. It provides a non weight bearing activity that avoids all the stresses and strains of exercising on hard ground. Most dogs love water and swimming is not only fun but also great exercise. Swimming for just five minutes is equivalent to twenty minutes of walking! Older dogs can benefit from controlled swimming as the soothing effect of the warm water improves circulation and encourages increased mobility in sore, stiff, and arthritic joints. Teaching your dog to swim can save his life – sadly many beloved companions are lost each year to drowning because they don’t know how to swim.
