Doggie Dip Day Set for Sept. 8, 2019

Posted: 09/03/2019
Doggie Dip 2019It’s nearly time for another great “Doggie Dip Day” on Sunday, Sept. 8, 2019, at Inskip Swimming Pool, 4204 Bruhin Road.

Since the City Parks and Recreation Department launched the event in 2010, the highly popular dog-only swim is now a fun way every year to wrap up the summer swimming season. 

“We hope everyone will bring their dogs out from 1-5 p.m. for this last bit of summer fun for the community,” said Aaron Browning, City Parks and Recreation Deputy Director.

Cost for the event is $5 per dog and per person, with a two-dog maximum for each owner. Owners must keep all dogs under control. All dogs are required to have up-to-date vaccinations, leashes and tags for the event. 

Dogs must be spayed/neutered and not in season. Doggie Dip registration forms must be completed for each dog attending.

At this year’s event, TVA Credit Union volunteers will be assisting with registration and check-in, and will also provide “Doggie Bags” with fun pup-related treats, food scoops and more. 

Attendees can pre-register this weekend at Inskip Pool during open hours: Saturday and Monday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, 1-6 p.m.
