BENEFITS OF WATER PLAY & EXERCISE
-- Allows for exercise with minimal discomfort. Buoyancy of the water supports 90% of a dog's weight, lessens stress on joints, encourages freer movement and provides a safe environment for exercise. Perfect for dogs with arthritis and joint issues.
-- Accelerates the natural healing process. Water exercise may slow the progression of certain degenerative conditions or speed recovery after an operation.
-- The added resistant the water provides actually makes swimming much more of an intense workout than just walking and running provides.
-- Loosens tight muscles and increases circulation. Promotes endurance, flexibility, range of motion, balance, coordination and muscle strength.
-- Relaxation, confidence building, increased vitality and joy.
-- One of the biggest benefits is fun. Most dogs that willingly swim love it and they reap all the benefits.

THE STORY OF JESSIE'S POOL
Dr. Keller reflects on her inspiration for creating this pool:
"In knowing of their tremendous, infinite desire to play, rascal and run, anticipating the ageing wear and tear on their majestic joints and bone structures, I discovered SWIMMING!!! With persistence and determination, both my boys, my 120 pound manatee-sized boys, were taught not only to swim but to LOVE the water!!! Jessie and Matt always knew when it was our time to go swimming! With one great leap they sailed into the beautiful abyss of the pool! Laughter and joy filled my heart as I got to experience this utter joy with them. I hope your heart will leap into Jessie's pool knowing it was created out of unconditional love I received from watching Jessie and Matthew in their ultimate joy of swimming and playing."
You and your dog angels will be refreshed here - mind, body and spirit. Call us at 561.509.6319 to reserve your ultimate dog swimming retreat!
