    We took our 6-1/2 month Vizsla for a swim lesson today and she loved it - so did we. She had started at home, but needed to build her confidence to jump in the water and now she does with ease!

    Our first time here. Took two of our biggest beasties to swim and see how they would take to dock diving. Lexie the Lab did great! Bailey the Doodle needs more confidence so we will be getting training from Joel next time. It was pouring down rain when we got there but went on in for the fun! I brought their favorite toys! We played fetch for almost an hour. They will sleep sound tonight! Thank you Joel for creating an place to swim with our furz. We will be going back with the little ones next go round!

    Lovely pool with a spectacular shade tree. JJ tried fetch it with no luck, but did some great splashes. Randee swam in the pool for the first time. Both had a great time! Thanks, Joel.

    Great as usual! My pup and kids love swimming together. We love the pool to ourselves and surrounded by the peace.

  • Lisa VanAuken

     29 Jun 2021


    Our first lesson was a lot of fun for our Murphy. And he got so much exercise that he slept the whole drive home! What a great experience for a very reasonable price. We will definitely be back.

  • Emily Cruz

     26 Jun 2021


    This place is a hidden gem and Joel is a fantastic host! The hour experience was better than what I expected. He coaxed our anxious lab/pit mix to get all four in the water in a mere 30 minutes and allowed us some privacy to enjoy the remaining hour of swim time. Joel’s calm manner, gentleness with training, and willing to try various things to win the pup over was very appreciated. The restroom/changing room off to the left is well maintained, air conditioned. The pool is saltwater, area around the pool is safe but of course, wet. We will definitely bring Franco and Post again very soon!

  • Mandy Ocampo

     25 Jun 2021

    this place is great!! Joel was extremely helpful & I cant wait to go back!! My pup, Scamp, was distracted a bit by the goats he has but Joel allowed Scamp to go to the fence and check them out! He even put them in his barn deal so we could contour our lesson, super nice of him. Defiantly recommend going!
