Calling all dogs to celebrate the end of summer at the 12th Annual Dog Splash Days in Templeton. |
This year's swim schedule is Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm. Special swim sessions for small dogs (under 30 pounds), senior, or disabled dogs are scheduled for Saturday at 3 pm and Sunday at 10 am. Small and senior dogs are also welcome at all other swim sessions.
Both the tot pool and the shallow end of the adult pool are open for dog swimming. Swim sessions are scheduled on the hour and limited to 20 dogs at a time to ensure a quality and safe play time for all dogs.
Dogs only are allowed in the pool for the event. Local dog trainers and therapists wearing wet suits volunteer their time as dog lifeguards to assist dogs in entering and exiting the water. Dog life vests are available for dogs that are new to swimming. Pool toys such as rubber ducks, rubber bananas, and Frisbees are also available.
Dogs must be 5 months or older and adult male dogs (over 7 months) must be neutered. Paper proof of current rabies vaccination must be presented at the registration table prior to admission to the pool area. Any dog displaying aggressive behavior will be required to leave the pool area immediately with a full refund.
Admission is $25 per dog through event day and advance reservations for a swim time are recommended but not required. Please note that some sessions sell out before the event. Dogs with pre-paid reservations are admitted before walk-ins on a space available basis.
Paid reservations can be made using a credit card. Optionally, reservations can be made by mail at PO Box 795, Paso Robles, CA 93447. Please include name, phone #, and desired date and time for swimming. Checks should be made payable to Dog Splash Days/SLOPOST.
Event sponsors include Las Tablas Animal Hospital, Lemos Feed and Pet Supply, Rabobank of Templeton, AM Sun Solar, and County Supervisors John Peschong and Debbie Arnold.
Parks4Pups, a non-profit group, organizes the 2-day event with all proceeds benefiting Vineyard Dog Park in Templeton.
