Giving pooches the chance to paddle their way to greater fitness, Paddlin Paws operates a purpose-built, canine hydrotherapy pool. A ramp and hoist help dogs both able-bodied and injured enter the pool, which is bromine-sanitised and heated to a comfortable 28°C. Buoyancy aids and life jackets are available for less skilled swimmers, and hydro jets provide resistance to give canines a workout. The pool measures 6.5m x 3.5m x 1.4m, and is surrounded by a raised platform. Fully-trained staff will be on hand at all times, and owners can relax in the observation room with a hot drink.
