Dog Swim Days 2017 – Swimming Pools Go to the Dogs


During the dog days of summer dog swim days are held at public swimming pools and water parks across the country, usually as the pools are closing for the summer and before they’re drained. Dog Swim Days are the one time of the year when dogs are welcomed to dog paddle, fetch and play in the pool.
