All breeds

Pool Safety is a dog swimming class that gets dogs comfortable and confident around bodies of water. Swimming is a step-by-step learning process that requires patience and practice. But soon enough, your dog will be a swimming master!

First, our trainer gets your dog comfortable with having their feet in the water. Slowly, she introduces your dog into the pool and guides them closely so they get used to the water. In addition to learning swim techniques, your dog also learns how to safely enter and exit the pool. Once your dog is confident in the water, then they can let loose and have fun playing fetch, swimming and splashing with friends. After each class, you get a report card with notes on your dog’s progress and awesome photos of them at Pool Safety.

This class takes place at the trainer’s private home.

Why do dogs need swimming class?

Unfortunately, drowning is all too common a cause of death among dogs. Although many people assume dogs are born knowing how to swim, it is a skill that requires learning and practice. But by enrolling in dog swimming class, your pup can comfortably enjoy being around water. Plus, you have peace of mind knowing that your dog is well-equipped and prepared to swim ashore!

  • Dogs who love to swim
