Using jets in the pool

At K9 Rehab we have the advantage of having a pool with jets. The jets are used to increase the endurance of the dog by having them swim towards the jet and having the fun of riding them back to the platform area for a break.  Once a dog is rehabilitated to the stage where jets can be incorporated into the swim protocol we start out slowly and increase time and laps accordingly.  We have a few fitness dogs that are currently using the jets as a form of cross training for their particular sport to increase endurance, cardiovascular stamina and increase muscle.

Our warm water pool isn’t just for rehabilitation it’s fun for cross training athletes, allowing dog reactive dogs to have fun off leash time swimming and playing with toys and we also teach dogs how to swim.

If you would like more information about our pool please call or email Clo and she will answer any of your questions.
