We are 100% committed to all our clients' safety and well-being and always have your pup’s best interest in mind! RWC works hard to ensure that your dog's first experience with water is a positive one. To that end, we make sure they wear flotation vests, familiarize them with the different entry and exit ramps & platforms, and have them work with a Trainer or Handler until they are confident in the environment. The pool is not just an excellent source of fun, but also helps our canine clients burn energy and build confidence. It can help with the rehabilitation of behaviors like reactivity or aggression. In addition, the pool is also used for physical rehabilitation, strength training, water sport training, and more.
RWC's pool is specially designed to ensure safety. Traditional pools use chlorine or salt to reduce harmful micro-organisms. Because sustained exposure to chlorine or salt is bad for your dog’s coat, skin, and digestion, our pools have a high-tech filtration system, that uses ozone and ultra-violet light to remove harmful micro-organisms and particulates. Our pool water is constantly monitored to ensure it is clean at all times and meets drinkable standards.
This is a frequently asked question from our customers. In the words of our dog trainer: "Treadmills are another mentally and physically draining exercise. It is hard for dogs to comprehend that the ground is moving underneath them, which challenges their brain and helps certain aspects of their mental growth. Not only does the treadmill help get rid of any extra energy, it can also help build confidence, help with reactivity and/or aggression rehabilitation, help the dog gain a pack mentality and more."
