Hydrotherapy For Your Dog.

Come enjoy our 51,000 gallon 24/7 indoor pool at Winchester, VA. Hydro-Therapy is a tailored private, one on one session with the handler and dog specifically designed to meet the needs of your dog. Hydro-Therapy is widely utilized to assist our canine companions when injuries have them sidelined from normal exercise. Resistance of the water allows for dogs to exercise without the concussive effects of running or walking on the ground.

Indoor Heated Dog Pool.

Your loved one is appropriately supervised and encouraged while he/she is guided through the tailored session. During these sessions, goals based upon his or her unique health history will be what the handler and dog are attempting to accomplish. Hydro-Therapy is Ridgeside K9’s hands on swim session allowing your loved one to reap the benefits of Hydro-Therapy under the watchful guidance of a professional.

Improve Strength & Tone!

Once your dog has been taught how to swim, and more importantly how to get out of the pool; swimming can become not only fun for your dog but also addicting. Therefore the reward is doubled by having something your dog enjoys, while getting the best attributes from swimming. The resistance of water makes it more difficult for your dog to move verses the normal walking or running on land, therefore giving them the opportunity to work harder for shorter durations of time.

KAYAK/PADDLE BOARDING
Getting your dog comfortable enough to enjoy a leisurely paddle is no different than training any other landlocked task. Repetitions, Repetitions, Repetitions is the name of the game.

SWIMMING BENEFITS

Canine sports like IPO, IGA, and dock diving are becoming more popular than ever. Work life, home life, and weather can influence our ability to keep our canine athletes in peak condition for their sport. According to Dr Arleigh Reynolds, a Veterinary Surgeon & Canine Physiologist, 1 minute of swimming is roughly equivalent to 4 minutes of running! However, swimming doesn’t just benefit our high drive working lines. Our lovable, cuddly, and sometimes overweight pet dogs can also maximize the benefits from swimming. Read more.
