This Therapy will enhance mind and body ability, reduce joint and muscle pain, prevent, or heal injury, restore function, provide comfort and so much more.

Enriching the quality of life for our pets is the best thing we can do. We are happy to share our specialized knowledge, and our learning is never ending. Our greatest accomplishment is the result of smiling faces and wagging tails…for longer.

Aqua Therapy + Swimming

Swim sessions are offered every Wednesday and Saturday. Swim sessions are either by appointment, or while your dog is at daycare.  Before your first swim, you will need to  complete one form that you will find on the website, under the “forms” tab.

Swimming is a great enriching skill to practice.

If your dog has never been swimming or is afraid of the water, it is a great confident building skill to learn. Our swim lessons have a 90% success rate, with an average of 6 consecutive lessons.

Swimming is a low impact exercise that dogs can benefit from and enjoy, from puppy thru geriatric stages.

Water safety and proper introduction can be life-saving.

Dogs and their humans have a fun, new and positive experience whether swimming alone or with Furiend(s).

 

South Paw Massage & Wellness provides everything from life jackets and flotation aids to ear cleanings. Your dog will be supervised and/or assisted by a trained swim coach throughout his/her swim to ensure he/she has a safe experience. There will be appropriate rest times during each swim. Water toys are allowed for fetching and encouraging.

 You are welcome to sit along the side and encourage your dog while he/she swims. There will be splashing and wet wagging tails, wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to possibly get wet. Children are not permitted to enter the pool.

If your dog has recently had surgery, South Paw Massage & Wellness will need a consent form from your dogs surgeon clearing them for swim.
