Pool Safety & Confidence
Not all dogs are natural swimmers, but all dogs can benefit from swimming. With the exceptional amount of residential pools in Orlando, FL having a calm presence around water can save a dog's life. Being familiar with the location of the pool steps and knowing how to find them efficiently is not a luxury, it's a necessity. Pool introduction and "lessons" are an integral part of this safety.

Often rescue dogs have experienced trauma - some by water hose, others by physical abuse. To begin a desensitization in the water, a dog can build confidence and trust. Sometimes, the trauma of one dog, who is terrified of the water, can be transferred to a new dog who is brought into a family.
