Something everyone living in Singapore has to contend with on a daily basis is the heat. While we can easily take a cold shower or pop by the nearest swimming complex for a refreshing swim, it’s unfortunately a bit more time-consuming and inconvenient for our dogs.

To make things easier, we’ve compiled a list of dog swimming pools in Singapore where you can bring your pet to cool off on a hot sunny day.

Hydrotherapy dog swimming pools in Singapore

What is hydrotherapy for dogs?

Hydrotherapy is a type of water therapy used for post-surgery recovery, treating conditions such as arthritis or improving overall fitness.

Because of the resistance in water, hydrotherapy strengthens your dog’s muscles without stressing its joints. As a result, it’s an effective way to relieve pain and boost physical health.

Note!
A veterinarian’s referral is required to commence hydrotherapy treatment. This allows the therapist to gain a better understanding of your pet’s condition in order to tailor a suitable treatment plan.

Your dog’s progress will be recorded every session and monitored closely.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I teach my dog to swim?

All animals, including dogs, are naturally able to swim.

What if my dog is afraid of the water?

It’s normal for your dog to be shy or afraid during his first time. All it takes is a few sessions before he starts to gain confidence, feel comfortable and have fun.

What do I need to bring?

  • Vaccination records
  • Towel
  • Toys
  • Soap and shampoo

The checklist may differ depending on your pool’s regulations.

Can I feed my dog before swimming?

Please refrain from feeding your dog at least 3 hours before and 1 hour after swimming.

What should I do when we arrive at the pool?

It’s important that you

  • do not book a swimming session during their regular toilet times and
  • toilet your dog before the session.

If your pet defecates in the pool, there will be a maintenance fee charged as it will have to be closed for sanitisation.

Do I have to rinse my dog after their swim?

Yes, you are advised to rinse your dog after his swim especially if the water is chlorinated.

Note!
If your dog has open wounds, contagious conditions or heart conditions, he will not be allowed in a pool.

Bringing Your Dog for a Swim

It’s no secret that swimming is great for your pet’s physical health. It’s also an effective way for obese dogs to lose weight.

But did you know that 5 minutes of swimming for a dog is equivalent to a 5km run? Well, now you do!
