2018 Dog Splash Days
Dogs can celebrate the end of summer at the 12th Annual Dog Splash Days at the Templeton Community Pool. This popular annual event attracts locals and tourists looking for a unique experience with their family dogs
This year’s swim schedule is Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm. The Saturday 10 am and Sunday 3 pm swim sessions are reserved for small dogs (under 30 pounds) and senior or disabled dogs. 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. Dog life vests and lots of floating retrieval toys are provided.
Dogs only are allowed in the pool for the event. Trained volunteers will be “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.
The Templeton Community Pool is located at the corner of Old County Road and 6th Street and adjacent to the downtown park in Templeton.
Dogs must be 5 months or older and adult male dogs 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.
