The Best Part About The End Of Summer

We always look forward to Summer. And then, poof, it’s gone.

Lucky for us, the Fall is a pretty fun time to get out and #DoMoreWithYourDog. But before we break out the flannel shirts and jump into the leaf piles, there’s one last, final, amazing, wonderful dog tradition to enjoy.

The post-Labor Day dog swim.

It’s almost a rite of passage at this point, and a date that your dog circled with his muddy paws on the calendar long ago.

So we are here to help you decide where to go this year, with our list of upcoming doggy days throughout the St. Louis area.

Now, a couple things to keep in mind before you go. Always make sure to check with the pool directly before attending. In some cases, pre-registration is a must.

And every pool has different rules. Some allow you to wade in with your dog, others declare No People Allowed (dogs rule, people drool). If you want to bring your (human) little ones, make sure that’s allowed, too.

Even if your local pool isn’t listed here, chances are they’re holding their own cage-free doggy pool day. And, of course, we’ll have our doggy pools in our outdoor play areas whenever we possibly can.

Lastly, all of the pools will most likely need your dog’s shot records too, so keep those handy.

Oh, and have fun. Because you know your dog will.
