Inground Dog Pool

Dog Swim Saukville, WI

Wisconsin’s first inground hydrotherapy doggie pool for health, fun, and learning!

A Pool Just For Dogs!

This pool was the first in-ground hydrotherapy pool for dogs in Wisconsin. The pool is heated to between 86-88 degrees and is 4’ 6” deep with steps for easy entry and exit. The chlorination is on the low side; just enough to maintain a clean environment, be safe for the dogs to ingest, and reduce the chance of irritating their skin.

While the pool was built for hydrotherapy, dogs of all physical conditions are welcome to use it for a workout or plain old fun!

The pool features two resistant jets on one end of the pool. These jets offer the opportunity to create a better workout for the dogs by adding resistance during the swim. Swims are beneficial to customers that want to have their dog lose weight with much less impact on their joints verses an activity like running. 

All first time swimmers must pass a swim evaluation with our certified swim instructions!


Waterworks Therapy

Waterworks Massage Cost: $70.00

Waterworks therapy is most effective with dogs that are older and dogs looking to rehab from an injury or surgery. Water therapy sessions are 30 minutes long and the dogs work with our certified massage and hydrotherapists: Mandie, Laura, & Nicky. The therapists will use passive range of motion work, massage, gentle flexing and stretching, and more to help stimulate blood flow and promote healing and strengthening.



Assisted Swimming Lessons

15 Minute First Time Swim Evaluation Cost: $25.00

15 Minute Assisted Swim Cost: $35.00

30 Minute Assisted Swim Cost: $50.00

These swim sessions take place with a certified trainer in the water with your dog. This is a great option for dogs and puppies that have never gone swimming before or are not fans of being in the water. The trainer will work with your pup to help acclimate them to the water and give them hands on guidance, direction and support to assist them in their swims.  All first-time swimmers are required to have a 15-minute first time swim evaluation with our certified instructors. Once your dog has been acclimated and have shown that they can swim on their own they will be graduated to solo swimming!

Standard Swimming

15 Minute Solo Swim Cost: $32.00

30 Minute Solo Swim Cost: $48.00

Solo swims are great for dogs that are used to the water and enjoy going for a dip in the pool. Depending on the dog staff may put a life jacket on them or use guide lines to help encourage them to swim to the end of the pool and back. Many of these dogs have a blast fetching toys or even swimming against a current with our special resistance jets that can be added in to the swim for some extra exercise and conditioning. 

Independent Swimming

15 Minute Independent Swim Cost: $22.00

30 Minute Independent Swim Cost: $36.75

Independent swimming is offered to customers who have had a passing swim evaluation. This discounted service is a space rental and allows owners to spend time with their dog without staff in the room. Owners are expected to follow pool room rules with their dog and are NOT allowed to enter the water themselves. Owners are responsible for the swimming and drying process but staff will clean up after you so leave the mess for us!

Fun in the Pool


My dog had panosteitis (growing pains) and needed to exercise his rear legs without putting stress on them. The pool was great and the staff was so willing to help. It was a great place to take him to swim even during the brutal winter. Since there was a dryer available and he only swam for 15 mins, he could get into a warm car after getting the necessary exercise. Thank you.

I can’t say enough good things about Dawgs in Motion! I took my dog there to swim today and had a GREAT experience… The staff is even greater! A few of the girls came out and greeted Duke and I thought that was very kind! We will definitely be back soon for another swim! Mary and Shauna were exceptional and encouraged my mom and me to throw Duke’s toy for him! Lastly, they printed out a sheet that said Duke’s first swim at DIM with some pictures on it that I loved! Great place, I would highly recommend!!
