Terms and Conditions

Booking Instructions:

  • A completed registration form must be provided at the time of booking, along with payment. The cost of the event will be £12 per dog which allows up to 2 adults per dog.
  • Each spectator just pays £1 and can be paid on the day.
  • Children under 8 go free.
  • Dogs under the age of 1 year will be restricted to the 9am session only for safety reasons.
  • Only one session per dog may be booked.
  • You must attend your allocated session. 10mins after the session has begun, dogs will not be allowed entry, so please be on time.

The Owner

  • At least one human (aged 16+) must accompany their dog in the pool. This is to ensure they can respond should their dog get into trouble, and also to assist the dog with getting out of the pool.
  • By agreeing to accompany the dog in the pool, you are confirming yourself as a competent swimmer.
  • Lifeguards will be provided to maintain the safety of human swimmers. Should the pool emergency alarm sound, all owners are to secure their dog and remove them from the water, therefore not to interfere with any rescue or endanger Woodgreen lifeguards.
