Pooches at the Pool

Saturday, September 10, 2016

Plymouth Pool is going to the dogs in 2016! 


Midland Parks and Recreation is delighted to announce the 6th Annual Pooches at the Pool Dog Swim! Owners will have the opportunity to fetch their Fido and take a swim before the pool closes for the season. Plymouth Pool features a zero-depth entry and a deep well - perfect for any pooch. Each dog (up to 30 per session) will get 30 minutes in the pool (owners age 8 and older are welcome to enter the water). Owners will be responsible for providing proof of vaccinations on the day of the event - thanks to the Midland Animal Clinic for verifying records. In addition, local canine organizations will be on hand to showcase their services and to provide volunteer assistance. Cost is $8/dog.

How It Works


Owners will have the opportunity to register (based on availability) their canine for one half-hour increment.

Vaccination Requirements


All canines will be required to have a rabies vaccine and we strongly suggest a distemper/parvo and a bordetella vaccine. Owners need to provide proof of the vaccinations on the day of the event. Dogs will not be permitted in the pool without verification of this information.
