Got a dog that loves to swim? Arbor Heights pool’s postseason for pooches approaches

It’s an annual tradition – AFTER Arbor Heights Swim and Tennis Club closes its pool for the year, its teams will raise money by inviting dogs over to swim again this year! The pool at 11003 31st Avenue SW plans five 2-hour sessions:

Tuesday, Sept. 17th 5-7 pm
Wednesday, Sept. 18th 5-7 pm
Thursday, Sept. 19th 5-7pm
Friday, Sept. 20th 5-7 pm
Saturday, Sept. 21st 10 am-12 pm

There are a few prerequisites – see them, along with other details, on the official flyer. No people in the pool (again, this is AFTER the human swims end for the season) but dog owners will have to stay at the club while their pets are in the pool. $10/donation per dog or $25 for a pass for the entire five-day run.

    This was so much fun last year. Going to get the pass this time!

    Sounds fun, but how do the dogs get in and out of the pool? Are there steps or just a ladder?

    Don’t tell my dog he won’t be able to sleep for three weeks.

    Is there a specific time for smaller dogs? My dog LOVES swimming but it can be scary at Magnuson when both him and the bigger dogs are going for the same tennis ball. He gets pushed under water sometimes :(

      Small dog owner – if you read the flyer that’s linked in the story, it notes that small dogs get the smaller pool to themselves.
