    Joel is great! Our dog was hesitant, but with gentle persuasion, she got in! All in all, it was a successful first visit!

    Second visit for us. Joel is super sweet and laidback. He made sure we understood rules, know where bathrooms are and let us enjoy swimming with our pets. Super affordable and pool well cleaned. Will go again soon.

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!

    We took our baby, Lucky, to his first pool season. Joel was so kind and patient with him. It was not a totally successful visit but we got close. I think after a few more tries Lucky will be swimming around like a champ. Thanks Joel! You’re the best!

    We had the BEST experience here! Joel was extremely welcoming and made the whole experience very enjoyable. I would recommend this place to anyone with who has a pup! It’s a family friendly environment so you can bring the kids and let them play in the water as well! The giant pool was very clean and well maintained. We will be back!

    Great experience. My pup and I are first timers! She was extremely afraid of the water! In 1 hour, Mr. Joel had her more confident and closer to jumping right in! We will definitely return! Thank you for your knowledge and patience! We both appreciated it so much!! ������

    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!
