Doggie Day Swim on September 7th

The summer pool season is wrapping up, so on Saturday, September 7th, DPR is partnering with DOH and the Washington Humane Society to host the 5th Annual Doggie Day Swim.  This year, one of the three locations will be Randall Pool, located at South Capitol and I streets. The event will take place from 12pm – 4pm and admission is free for DC residents. There will be a maximum of 75 dogs allowed at one time in the pool.

To maintain order and to ensure a safe and fun event, dog owners are asked to follow these rules:
  • All dogs MUST have and wear a valid DC dog license.
  • Dog Handlers must be 16 years of age or older.
  • Dog handlers cannot swim or enter the pool with their dogs.
  • Dogs must be sociable and remain leashed while on the pool deck.
  • All dogs must be current on vaccinations including rabies and distemper.

Why is the winter cover already installed at Randall Pool?!?

How is the doggie swim going to happen if the pool has been covered?

The dogs can probably ask thier human masters to remove the pool cover.

A little bummed out by the city would have a person on-site to approve the dog license right there.

There will be someone on site to register dogs for the event...sorry for the oversight.

It should be a beautiful day! I hope everyone can come out to enjoy this special, free event. You don't even have to have a dog!

Great news! They removed the pool cover! The water is a little green, but this is going to be a great event!

All dogs on deck!
