Welcome to K9 H2O – The Lower Mainland’s Original Pool for Dogs
About Vancouver’s Original Pool for Dogs
- Secluded in a casual and welcoming environment, this unique facility offers an 80,000 liter sanitized warm water pool
which accommodates dogs and other companion animals.
- Unlike running or simple walking , the natural buoyancy of the water greatly reduces stress on bones and joints
thereby alleviating the pain induced by contact with the ground.
Ask your veterinarian about it.
- Our primary concerns are safety and comfort. A large non-slip ramp allows your dog access to the shallow end of the pool.
- The 16 foot by 32 foot pool is maintained at 84 degrees for comfort.
- All swims are by appointment only.
Our facility has been open since 2001. With our extensive experience we have been able to assist hundreds of animals burn off some much needed steam and gain some muscle. We do not discriminate against breeds, and among the hundreds of satisfied dogs we have also swam a miniature horse, a fawn, a skunk, a swan, ferrets, hedgehogs, guinea pigs, a lamb, a goat 3 cats and many more.
