Great facility Great swimming facility for our highly active dog.
Jill A
So worth the 2+ hour drive! Seeing our dogs so happy and enjoying themselves is so worth the 2+ Hour drive! The dogs walk in all excited and they leave having spent all of their energy. Thank you again Stephanie for a great time!
Caroline C
great time All 3 of my dogs, "the boys," had a wonderful time at SwimDog.

Sage has her"wiggle" back Sage is feeling so much better. You can tell that she is so much more relaxed and slept really good after her Massage. When she walks, looking at her from behind, she walks so much easier and not so stiff like I was seeing before. Sage was thanking me with kisses all the way home. Excellent job!!
Nicole B
Always great! My dogs and I LOVE swim dog! Very friendly and helpful staff/owners. The dogs are whining in the car as soon as we pull in the drive. Definitely recommend!
Becky S
Very Very Impressed Review of Stephanie V With our dog, Teakie, who was traumatized by swimming pools as a young pup. Stephanie was very understanding and patient with her. Being a Lab and afraid of swimming pools, it was amazing to see the difference in Teakie after Stephanie helped her gain confidence with big swimming pools. The swimming also helps Teakie with her autoimmune poly-arthritis syndrome. There is not enough words to say thank you for helping Teakie get over her fears. Stephanie is great with animals, has patients of a saint, and goes out of her way to make sure that every dog has a positive experience. Teakie can't wait until she can go again!! Thank you, Stephanie for allowing and helping Teakie to swim!!

Great facility Such a good way to get exercise for my very active dog!

Dawn J
Love It Staff is just fantastic!
Awesome Place We love it at SwimDog! The staff is friendly & knowledgeable. You can tell they really care about your dog. It's such a great exercise for our dogs and we love that we can have private appointments. We will keep coming back!

First Swim Koda had a great first swim! Staff was very friendly and patient with Koda who was a bit shy about swimming. Was lots of fun!
Paul D
Tucker’s rehab Very pleased and happy with the set up at Swim Dogs. Greeted every time by Stephanie like a lost friend. Tucker can’t wait to get in the pool for ACL rehab. Would recommend to anyone looking for a controlled environment for their dog. It’s perfect to have just you and your pup in the pool with no other distractions
Jennifer M
Always fun!! Brady had another great swim today! Always very friendly people. The pool is always clean. A great way to get some exercise other than walking! We will be back!!!
First time at SwimDog Wellness Center Our dog had SO much fun for his first time swimming. We will be back!
Amanda S
Great experience. We had an awesome time at Mia's first swim dog appointment! The staff was very knowledgeable and was super nice!!! We will definitely be coming back once Mia rests up!!
Great Place My dog has mobility issues, so having a swimming pool that is set up for dogs has helped her progress. The owner and staff could not have been more helpful, and I can't thank them enough for working with us.
Victoria D
Sage has her"wiggle" back Thank you so much for taking the extra time with Sage to work out all of the "knots." She crawled into the backseat of the car when we left and she was sound to sleep by the time we got onto the highway. Once again, I can tell that she feels so much better. She is more alert and ready to play again! Once again, thank you so much!
Mary O
Great experience This was my best experience washing my dog!Thank you for providing this wonderful option.

Open swim So much family fun with Tony and our dog Charlie and Norman!
Cheryl C
A Winter Break My 5yr Brittney mix couldn't be happier swimming and playing. It's much needed exercise during the winter months. The staff (Steph) was super friendly and helpful and my dog took to her like she knew her forever. We've already scheduled more time and dock diving lessons! So happy I went to SwimDog! (my dog is happy too) Thank you!
Kate P
Highlight of the week! SwimDog is a wonderful place for the dogs and for me. They are able to burn off energy and stay in shape in a fun, safe place. Stephanie is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I look forward to our time at SwimDog, it's a highlight of my week!
Darcey V
Stephanie is awesome Had a great time, pleasant experience!
Abbie M
Awesome Experience Stephanie was awesome. She did great with both our dogs. We were a little nervous with how our dogs were going to do in the pool. We will definitely be coming back again soon!
Denise M
happy pup Zac is always so excited to go to Swim Dog! When he's done, he's one tired but happy pup!
Candy H
Gypsy love it!! My Newfoundland has hip issues and she has really benefited from the swims she has had in the warm water.
Oksana J
We couldn't love it more! The staff here are so nice and really know what they are doing. I had adopted a border collie 2 years ago that was lacking some confidence, she now is jumping into the water on her own! We really do love it here. Its also one on one and great for dogs who dont love to be around other dogs!
Lori K
Open swim We love being able to spend time in the swimming pool with our dogs
Patti S
Earl loves Stephanie Stephanie began helping Earl learn that he could swim when he was 14 weeks old. She was incredibly patient and loving with him and now, at 8 months old, he's a crazy swimming BOXER puppy who adores the water and is an amazing swimmer. Thank you SwimDog for giving me something I've always wanted. A Boxer that loves water!!!
William S
Swimdog is the Best! Our two goldens and our German Shepherd absolutely love their sessions at swim dog. It's perfect for winter when it's too cold for the dogs to be outside or like now when everything is just too wet and soggy. It's the perfect way to burn some energy and then go home and enjoy a little downtime while the dogs nap.
Peg B
Dog wash Loved it. Perfect for our setter. Great place. Stephanie was wonderful. Thk u.
Brian and Nicole Dimmer
Bucky's First Swim We took Bucky to Swim Dog for his first swimming experience and greatly enjoyed it! The staff was welcoming, and worked well with our dog. Bucky enjoyed it, and we definitely plan to come back!
jessica t
Thankful for swim dog Bailey and I had a great first time, we will be back. loved the pool and staff. thank you so much for opening a safe place to take dogs so they can enjoy swimming and owners don't have to worry about what's in the water..
Excellent place to exercise your dog I'm so glad the Fox Cities has this place for our canine friends.
Nichole H
So fun for Lucy! Lucy was terrified of the water which led us here on a friends recommendation. I’m so glad we did! I assumed dogs knew how to “doggie paddle” by nature. Well, they don’t! It took about 10 mins of positive reinforcement, but Lucy loves the water now! We will be coming back for sure!
Loretta S
Dock diving lesson An altogether great experience on my first visit for an advanced dock diving lesson with my 6 month old puppy. The facility was well-maintaimed and the pool exceptionally clean, which is the most important thing. The staff was friendly and our trainer extremely knowledgeable. We will be back (even though it means a three hour drive from home - each way!).
Cindy B
pool GREAT experience for my dog's first time. the assistant took their time with him, "tried" to make him comfortable in the water. Can't wait to come back and try again to see if my dog will have a little more confidence. Great facility!
Lori K
Great place This was my first time there and it was a lot of fun for my dogs. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a day out a with their dogs!
Heather R
doggy heaven Swim dog is awesome. Our 3 year old black lab was getting cabin fever. He lives on a lake and has been sad that his lake is now ice. We took him here and he immediately jumped in. Stephanie was awesome. She made sure he was comfortable getting up the ramp and checked on us several times. Bear got a great work out and came home and slept the night and even slept in late the next morning. We will definitely be back.
Jenny P
Awesome exercise place for the dogs I absolutely love swim dog!!!! it's great periodically to change up Bentleys exercise routine he love love loves it !!!!!
Jered M
Great Facility Excellent place to take ur dog just for a swim or therapy.
Sarah B
Amazing as always Our GSPs absolutely love going to SwimDog!! They get so excited when we turn down the street it is on and staff is always such a pleasure to encounter.
Katie L
Fun time Fun time! Staff is great at picking up on doggie language. We'll be back!
Peggy L
great for after surgery Lucy enjoyed her time swimming and it was great low impact exercise for her! she loves Swimdogs!
First Time Swim My dog loved the swimming facility! Perfect place for him to perfect his swimming skills and expel some energy! Staff was very friendly.
Annette V
Review of Swim Dogs My dogs always have a grand time in the pool! As do I. I love the ease and comfortable setting!
Therese B
Hydrotherapy following TPLO Our dog, Marley, recently had TPLO surgery and our Vet recommended we consider Hydrotherapy to help her rebuild the muscles in her leg. We considered the options available in the Green Bay and Appleton areas for the therapy. SwimDog is the only option that we found that will provide an opportunity for Marley to get the exercise she needed in a free swim format. On our first visit, the staff at SwimDog helped us to get Marley accustomed to the pool and the use of the ramp in and out of the pool. They were extremely helpful answering all of our questions and showing us the equipment they have available for baths and drying after the swim. Marley absolutely loved the swimming! Thank you for all your help! We look forward to many more visits!!
Joelle M
Great Facility So glad I found this facility. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. I will definitely bring my dog here regularly.
Jill A
Another fun visit! We drive from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to enjoy watching our dogs have fun in the pool. Stephanie always is so warm and welcoming and goes out of her way to make sure every visit is great! Thank you again Stephanie'
Angela R
Love swimdog Wonderful place!! Awesome girls:)
James (Jim) M
Melissa Review of Melissa K Melissa is great. We love her and so do our dogs. She is very patient and willing to do anything.
Vicki H
Looking forward to returning! Stephanie was wonderful to work with! Abbey loves water and needed little encouragement to jump right in. However Twist was a bit more reluctant. Stephanie worked with her using techniques to make her feel safe and by the end of the session she was jumping in as well. Next time we'll be able to do the free swim or owner assisted swim. I'm so happy the Fox Valley area has a facility such as this complete with caring staff.
Breanna R
Excellent place! Withing just a few minutes of our first session our bulldog loved it and was exhausted by the end. With our 2nd session we even got him to jump in off the ramp. He loves the activity of swimming and fetch in the water. Great help by the employees as well! Overall fantastic experiences.
E.
Fun space My George was new to water and the staff took their time with him . He is clearly interested in swimming and I d bet dock jumping too.
Lori W
***** Awesome place and people
Denise M
happy, happy, happy!! very happy with Swim Dog! It was my dog's first time ever swimming. Starting him off slow and steady made all the difference so he wasn't afraid. Very impressed!
Dana Z
Perfect! Henry had a great experience getting used to the water - and I had a great time being part of it! Stephanie made the experience very positive for both of us.
Tanner H
Love it Great place to get you dogs exercise at a great rate
Julien and Lindsay Wechseler
Can't get enough! Julien and I love bringing Rufio here to swim! Rufio is our, almost 3 year old 210lb English Mastiff. Rufio and Julien swim together and always have such a great time as I toss toys for Rufio to go and retrieve. Whether it's too cold out or you are looking for a fun, non weight bearing exercise, this is the place to go! It is a great change of routine when you are looking for something different to do with your fur baby!
Chad P
Great I just had brought my 7 month old Golden Retriever into swimdog wellness center and I could not have been more pleased and satisfied with the facility and the instructor! It was such a great experience for both me and my pup, I would highly highly highly recommend this place if anyone is on the fence about getting your dog in the water!
Emma C
Awesome place! We had such a wonderful time with rick for our dock jumping raining. He was so great with him when he was nervous to begin and eventually had an awesome time. Highly recommend swim dog!
Terry K
Great place Loved it, Spirit had so much fun. Great place, will definitely be back!
Terry K
Good Time Always have fun with Spirit at Swim Dog. Friendly staff and clean facility
Denise M
Happy dog....happier owner Zac loves Swim Dog! He's so excited when he knows he gets to swim again! His skills improve with each visit. Happy dog....happier owner!
Is it spring yet? My English Lab loves her swims at SwimDog. Great place to tire out an exuberant dog and gives them a place to exhibit all of their energy without the mud and messes of spring thaws.
Brooke S
Brutus' first swim! We are so incredibly happy with our first experience at Swim Dog! Our helper was Stephanie and she was so amazing with our very large and scared Saint Bernard, Brutus. He's 5 years old and has never been swimming before. With Stephanie's patience and a few treats, Brutus was in the water swimming around the whole pool! And he looked so adorable in his extra large doggy life jacket. This was a huge step for him and we couldn't be happier. We will be back and we will recommend Swim Dog Wellness Center to everyone we know. Thank you so much, Stephanie. You made this an AMAZING experience.
Barbara Y
Best thing since sliced bread First swim post CCL surgery. Dr. cleared Abner for swimming and we got an appointment at SwimDog the next day. My boy was a little reluctant at first but was soon bringing toys back from the pool. Staff was excellent and knew right away that Abner had had surgery. She looked at his leg as he swam to make sure that it was moving in the right direction. This place is wonderful. I wish they were closer to our house but definitely worth the drive for us.
Brittany h
amazing My dog is recovering from an ACL surgery and had so much fun swimming. Our initial visit went great, and I will be coming back with my dog to swim with him. SwimDog Wellness was very courteous, and accommodated to my dogs needs.
Danielle G
Awesome experience Brought my dog to swim to get some exercise and it was very easy to get her in the water. Staff was very friendly. I will be coming back again.
Darcey V
Love it My dog is improving each time we go
Catherine K
Swim Love this place! Nice to have a facility like this to practice dock diving and just let the dogs have fun. Friendly staff with good amenities.
Debbie J
First Swim Lesson Thank you so much for making this such a great experience for my puppy and also for me. Your expertise and friendly atmosphere made all of us feel so welcome. I am glad she is getting comfortable with the water but also like it that it gave her a good work out.We will be back.Thank you for offering this service to the public.
Bonnie J
Thankful Great place to exercise your dogs. Friendly and clean.
Stella R
Awesome! My dog Charles comes here for his arthritis therapy. When I bring Charles to Swim Dog Wellness Center, I know he is in safe, capable hands. Thank you so much for everything that all of you do.
Joy
Great fun! I love that we have a facility like this in the fox valley. It has always been clean and the staff friendly and helpful each time I've visited. Will definitely return.

Dock Dog training Review of Rick Laes Rick was very helpful in getting Savvy started as a Dock dog. We appreciate his time and guidance.
Lori K
Free swim Thank you for such a good time!! Thank you also for scheduling our next swim time!!
Jen H
Love it! had a great first experience and will definitely continue to use the facility!
Barbara Y
So much fun! We went to Swim Dog because my 12 year old tore his CCL (knee ligament) and we were waiting to see a vet at the Animal Referral Center. I wanted to do what I could to help him meanwhile, and a friend suggested we try Swim Dog. Abner had the absolute best time he’s had in a long time. It was a blast seeing him swim like a fish with a big smile on his face. After the consult with the vet at ARC we’ll be back! Thanks Beth!
Lori K
Free swim Another fun filled half hour in the pool with my two dogs!! Thank you Morgan
Terri d
Love this place. Great idea. Omg. I have an unsocial dog so this place give her the opportunity to have fun and for me not to worry. Best idea ever and very affordable. The staff is great. Love it😁
Stephanie G
Nice facility, helpful staff My dogs were a little unsure at first, as they have never been to an indoor pool before, but Stephanie was very helpful with coaxing them into the water and helping them relax and get the most out of the experience. Everything was very clean and well maintained. I will definitely be taking my dogs there again.
Michelle B
Such a great experience! Such a great environment for us to see how our dog would do in the water. Spent a lot of time with him making him comfortable in the water and having a great time! He was so happy & pooped out when we got home! Can't wait to take him back!
Audrey K
Awesome I am so happy I took my dogs to Swim Dog. It was the best thing I could have ever done for them. The place is wonderful, set up is awesome and staff is awesome to work with. I highly recommend Swim Dog and for you to try it. I have already booked another appointment. Great way to keep your dogs in shape and keep up on their training.
Jill A
The Most Fun Place in Town! We traveled 2 1/2 hours to take our dogs to Swim Dog. The dogs love it, we love it, and we can't wait to do it again. My only regret is I wish they would open another in our town so we could go every week! 😁
Corey H
Best Time Ever! Best time ever! We took our 8 year old lab mix and 2 year old pitbull mix to swim and they had a great time. She was very patient with both of them to find what would work to het them comfortable in the water, by the end both were using the ramp all by themselves and pros!
Kristie K
Best Winter Fun We had an amazing time at Swim Dog. Stephanie did a great job with my 7 month old dachshund, helping him figure out how to swim. I can't wait to get them back over for their next visit!
Ted C
Lil Al Review of Stephanie V Al is 8 months old, Stephanie had him swimming in no time. Look forward to taking him soon for a swin again soon.
Tim S
Husker Loves SwimDog SwimDog is a great place for a morning workout for our lab Husker during the winter. Replaces our usual morning walk together. Love it!
Ashley Z
AWESOME Gave me the perfect opportunity to let my pup do one of her favorite activities in the dead of winter. I thought she was going to be a little nervous about the ramp but she ran right in and started swimming like a champ. The staff was friendly and encouraging and the facility was clean and easy to use. The added rinse off/blow dry at the end was really nice due to the low temperatures outside. Will 100% book again and again and have already told all of my friends about it.
Michelle M
LESSON'S WITH RICK ROCCO HAS BEEN ENJOYING HIS SESSIONS AT SWIMDOG!
Stacy P
Awesome facility My older dog is having mobility issues and the vet suggested water therapy. He did amazing at his first session. We thought he didn't like water but he seemed to enjoy it. I wish I would've found this soon er. We will definitely be going back for more!
Swim Dog Cures Doggy Cabin Fever Winters with long days of below zero temperatures leave all of us with a case of cabin fever. However, Swim Dog provides my exuberant English Lab pup with time to develop swimming and retreiving skills as a healthy environment to work off energy. We love the staff and careful attention to a safe playful environment.
Michelle S
Excellent Experience Very friendly and patient staff. We will be returning for more swim lessons!!
Daniel D
Pool fun Great place to take your dog for a swim. Easy access ramp and long enough for a long jump. Facility is clean and the staff is genuinely interested in ensuring your dog enjoys.
Wesley O
One tired doggy! Woohoo! This place is great! Hazel swam and practiced her dock diving skills. And then she slept and slept and slept! We'll be back for sure!
Charles B
Always a pleasure My sons two German shepherd's just love Swim Dog. The staff does a great job working with the excited dogs.
Danielle
Great For High Energy Dogs I have a very high-energy mix breed that goes a little batty when the weather gets bad. Problem: she's not a fan of water. After one assisted swim (yes, we had to basically drag her in) and the overwhelming temptation of a tennis ball, she's now running straight down the ramp and jumping in without a life jacket. 30-45 minutes later, she's tired and happy. And I had fun too! Friendly staff that isn't intrusive, but helps when asked.
Christy G
fun and exercise SwimDog is such a fun and easy way for us to spend time with our dog in the winter and to give her more intense exercise. The website is so easy to sign up for lessons, and automatically sends text and e-mail reminders for appointments so that is very convenient and helpful. Our dog loves it!
Shari M
A+ What a great thing to have in the valley for our dogs!
Mike C
First Session We really enjoyed our first swim session with Lisa. Your facility is awesome and Bleu had a blast! Thank you so much for teaching us how to help rehab our pup and for making Bleu's first swim so enjoyable! We will see you next week!
Alison G
DIY Dogwash Great! We used the dogwashing facilities for our large, ancient, stiff, and not-happy-about-baths Bernese Mountain Dog and found it to be the best thing yet for getting the old boy clean. He appreciated the quiet dryer and warm atmosphere.
Andrea
Perfect for Winter Rehabilitation This was an amazing experience. We will definitely be coming back weekly! Our black lab hurt his front leg and SwimDog definitely allowed him to exercise it without strain. Our other pup comes along just for fun, it helps use up her energy. Definitely give it a try!
Jessica Smith
Awesome Experience Our dog Staingo loved every minute of swimming day and my husband and I enjoyed watching her. We brought her for exercise and she was so tired afterwards. You could tell she just had the best time. The owner did an awesome job getting us familiar with how everything works and spent time working with Staingo, getting her comfortable getting in and out of the pool. Overall we were extremely impressed and will be coming back soon. Worth the ride from Fond du Lac for sure!
Susan B
Fun Time We started going to Swim Dog this summer and Ryker loves it from the time we get there till we leave. He does his enthusiastic meet and greet and then runs ahead to the gate to be vested and then the fun and splashing while being vocal and finally he jumps into the tub to be rinsed down. We'll be back.
Andrew H
great experience my dog sunny and I enjoy our swimming experiences at Swim Dog Wellness Center staff is great and making an appointment is easy online
Chuck B
Great experience My neighbor told me about SwimDog, then left a flier in my mailbox. My sons dog loves swimming in the summer. Took him to SwimDog last week and he had the time of his life. The staff was great! Will be back
Nicole B
Great Experience! I brought the new puppy as well as the seasoned veteran in for some swimming. Stephanie did a fantastic job with Tally to make her first swim a positive and enjoyable one. We cant wait to come back!
Carly V
As wonderful as ususal! This place is always so much fun! I started bringing my dog here when she was a young pup. She is now a very confident swimmer and gets so excited every time we pull into the parking lot of SwimDog.

Cindy F
Crosbie & Carmel love Swim Dog💕 It had been quite a while since we had been there, & when I turned down Neubert Rd, Both of them remembered where we were going. I had all I could do to hold onto them. They just wanted to get in there & jump into the pool. 🐾🐾
Lori B
Always amazing time! I don't know who has more fun the dogs or us just watching them!
Stella R
Great place for a dog with Arthritis My dog Charles goes to SwimDog once a week for his arthritis. At 15 1/2, Charles does not need to take any medication thanks to the dedicated staff who ensure Charles does his laps!
janet r
Great exercise for the dogs! We heard about SwimDog from the physical therapist at Fox Valley Animal Referral Center in Appleton. She suggested that we try this to help keep our two older labs in shape, especially during the winter months. Our guys absolutely LOVE retrieving a ball in the pool! Their endurance is improving with each session. Would highly recommend this facility to anyone with a dog that likes water or needs to rehab after an injury or surgery!
Amy T
We'll be back We just went for fun and to see if my shih tzu enjoyed the water. The place is well kept and we were treated very well.

Stacey D
Goldie's 1st Birthday I signed Goldie up for her first swim here as a birthday present. Stephanie was so helpful and nice. With her assistance Goldie was using the ramp in no time. By the end of the 30 minutes she was jumping off the dock. Again, with Stephanie's help. Great place!! Definitely going back. Thank you!
Annette H
So FUN! My dogs LOVE their time at Swim Dog Wellness Center. One actually fetches in the water the whole time..and the other just paces the perimeter-as she is not a water dog!
Annette H
So FUN! My dog was recently diagnosed with stomach cancer. On her bucket list, is to swim at Swim Dog Wellness Center. We'll try to make it once a week until she can no longer do it.
Cheryl S
Free swim This is the best place to take your dog super place and great people who work there

Amazing place! I’m so glad that I have a place to take my dog swimming! He just recently had shoulder surgery so being able to exercise him with swimming is great. Stephanie thank you for what you do and being great with my pup.

Ruger Training Ruger loves to swim he starts barking as soon as we turn down the road to go there. The facility is clean and the people there are kind and help full. I recommend Swim dog to my friends. I dream is to have Ruger compete at dock dogs and pier pups.
Kerrie Jo W
Doggy Fun!!! We have a wonderful time. Once the dogs got acclimated they really enjoyed it. We will be back.
gale h
first visit very knowledgeable, very gentle with our dogs, will be going every week
Vincent P
Self Dog Wash Very nice and clean place to wash your dog. I recommend it 100%.
Autumn V
Great help in dock training!! Review of Rick Laes Rick did a great job at helping us get our lab to jump in the water! Foster is smart enough to use the steps or the ramp so he helped us work with him to get him to jump off the dock! It was a small step but it made us very proud on our goal to get him in to dock jumping competitions. Rick was relaxed and great with helping Foster feel comfortable! Thanks again Rick!
Lea K
Fabulous Introduction Had very low expectation that our dog would swim, let along enjoy it. She didn't want to get in but everyone was patient and inviting and knew just what to do. Also knew when to stop to avoid overwhelming her. Will definitely be back.
Denise M
one tired, happy pup Zac totally enjoys his visits to Swim Dog! Although he's still a bit hesitant to get in the water on his own, once we get him in he has a blast! We can see his confidence growing! It's an amazing place!!
Best place ever I can't say enough good things about Swim Dog! This is Drake's favorite place to be next to hunting.
Jan & Tom
A Golden's Dream (Act 2) We have been bringing our Golden, Hannah, to SwimDog for 2 years now. She is ten 1/2 years old and we truly believe that her weekly swim time keeps her in top physical condition. Our Vet has even commented on how fit she is for her age. Hannah loves to swim so we come year round. SwimDog is a great place with an exceptional staff!
Krista G
Shih Tzu Appointments are easy to book and it's easy to bring in our Shih Tzu for much needed exercise. Really appreciate the weekend appointments. Pool is great, and we can swim together with him, works out wonderful for us. Thanks!
Jeanne S
thank you Loki is so excited to come and swim,, 11 years old and he acts like a puppy there!! thank you!!!
Mary O
Best Wash ever If you want a good job, you do it yourself. You decide the degree of "clean" and it's fun too. I will be a regular customer. Thank you for having the service available.
CANDY N
First step to dock diving Rags and I had our introduction to dock diving this past weekend . We both had so much fun and look forward to learning more so we can get a title in Dock diving though the AKC. Thank you for all the fun Rags and I had Sunday I really appreciated your warm welcome and experience
Nancy S
Third visit Excellent facility, Lexi is gaining confidence, helps so much that I can go into the pool with her.
Samantha G
So friendly! My pup Bailey, who just turned one, is a little afraid of the water. Thanks to SwimDog and the staff, she's warmed up to swimming! The staff is so friendly and create excitement for swimming that makes it a totally positive experience for both myself and my dog. I love that they offer multiple dog swims to be able to create an opportunity where my dog can swim with more experienced "friends" to give her the confidence and motivation she needs by seeing other pups have fun swimming too!
Robin w
So awesome they need to be a chain Can't say enough good things about our first visit. But I will say we drove almost 4 hours one way to get there and I'd definitely do it again! Can't wait to go back.

Excellent Dock Diving Lesson It was our 1st time at the facility. We had a great experience and can’t wait to go back. We learned a lot during our lesson with Rick.
Laurie S
Goldens Love It! We love your facility! It is very clean and neat! Love that we can go in swimming with our dogs. Planning a spring pool party and can’t wait. We have fun watching them having fun! Thank you Stephanie!
First time Great Experience. Relaxed atmosphere. Beth was awesome!
Jamie J
So glad we found this place! We have an energetic lab who cannot get enough of the water. We are so glad he can still get his swimming in throughout the winter! This is worth the long drive for us. The training is incredible. The pool is very clean. The setup is very nice, as you have the pool to yourself for your entire designated time. I really appreciate the dog wash and blow dryer when we are done as well.
Chad J
Excellent indoor dock diving and swim facility We spent an hour at SwimDog and loved every second of it. Stephanie was wonderful to work with, and then we were able to let the dogs do some free swim time and beginner dock dive work. Great time, and we will be back!

Love It I have a one year old Lab I am working with to become a Dock Dog. SwimDog Wellness Center has just been fantastic. The one on one with my dog in the staff assisted swim was just wonderful. Very Clean pool,building,I felt really welcomed. I look forward to the adventure with my dog and the staff at Swimdog.
Cindy P
Gussie's first swim Beth was so friendly and full of praise which made this visit very fun! Gussie didn't want to quit swimming!
Sally P
Swim session My golden was squealing with delight the entire time!! Awesome.
Denise M
tired, but happy doggie Zac loves SwimDog!! When he's done with his swim, he's one tired and happy dog! He's doing so well that he even went into the water by himself this time!
Mark Z
Amazing fun day for our boys!!!! Stephanie was amazing helping them get acquainted with the pool and ramp. Highly recommended.
Sara M
First visit Staff was friendly and my dog really enjoyed herself.
Robert G
We love Swim Dogs Swim Dog Wellness Center is GREAT! My dogs love it. Stephanie is a wonderful coach whether it's your first time in a pool or taking one of their more advance classes. Now we have another way to exercise that is fun and affordable and something we can do year-round.
Patti S
Thank you Blue had such a good time. It was good to see her smile again!!! We loved your facility.
Amy P
The Dogs Love It This is great exercise and something different for my dogs. We love coming to Swim Dog.
Nici M
Swim Test I just recently took my 2 year old pit bull in for a swim test and the whole experience exceeded my expectations. Stephanie was wonderful to work with and before we knew we had a swimmer on our hands. We will be back for sure.
Oksana J
Awesome job! I have a dog with horrible back legs so swimming is great for him. However he isn't always the friendliest with dogs or people so I am always hesitant to bring him to new places. Swimdog is a great place as it's just you, your dog and a staff member. Stephanie and Morgan have done a great job with my dogs. It's a great way to do something different with your dog and have a blast.
Terry K
Excellent facility Have so much fun with dogs each time I take them. Staff is so friendly and helpful and good with the dogs. Clean fun atmosphere.
Janet Klitzka
I love this place Stephanie was so helpful to me and to my dog, Mya. It brings me so much happiness to be able to swim with her and see her feeling better with her joint issues.
Mallory L
What a fun way to spend a Sunday! I was nervous before my first appointment because I have a husky... and huskies tend to not be so water-friendly. Sure enough, when we got close to the pool, my Emma was very hesitant to go in! Luckily, Melissa was very calming and supportive of Emma and helped her ease her way into the water. It was also great that I was able to get in the pool and help encourage her to come in. Eventually, Emma was jumping in the water to fetch toys! It was such a fun way to have some quality time with my fur baby and learn more about her. We will absolutely be back so that she can develop more comfort in the water. Thanks for being so welcoming and for the fun experience!
Erin V
We love swimdog! I have been going to swim dog for a few years now with my Golden. She LOVES it. 1 minute of swim is equal to about 4 minutes of running for a dog! It's great exercise! I have recently also gotten the dog massage for Molly. She loved that and I love that her mobility has improved! Great place, I will continue to spread the word!
Crystal S
What a gem! I am so happy I found this place! What a great facility to let my water-loving dog get his swim on! The heated pool is great for older dogs or those with joint conditions too. Staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. We both can't wait to go back!
Maria M
Wonderful!!! I am so thankful for this wonderful facility and excellent staff. Stephanie knows dogs. She loves dogs and her work with our very scared rescue dog has been outstanding. The time we (my dog and I) spend at swimdog fills my pup with confidence and wears him out. It's a blessing to have somewhere to get all that energy out on cold winter days. I can not say enough good things about swimdog, it's good for the heart and for the soul. Oh, and it's so easy to set up appointments etc. it's really professional and well organized. How lucky are we to have this awesome facility and caring smart staff right here in Appelton? Very!
Betsy H
Wonderful!!! This is exactly what Jack needs so that he can get back to his busy schedule of playing ball and mowing the grass! thank you!
Beth J
Wonderful experience!! Morgan assisted us with our first visit, what a pleasure it was, she was wonderful and we look forward to returning.
Beth S
Wonderful first experience My two boys (poodles) just had orientation, and it went wonderfully. Next up is to purchase a package and keep going/growing from there. Thanks for such a good time!
Gwen C
Wonderful place for Dogs!!! Thank you so much for helping our dog Seamus in his rehabilitation with his injury. I facility is just so great and your attention and patience and understanding and knowledge were wonderful. I am certain that this is going to help him. What you provide for dogs is great you should have four pools and staff so you can help more animals who need it. Thank you we will be back!
Stella R
Wow!!! I brought my three dogs in for their first swim. I was amazed at the professionalism and kindness shown by your staff. Thank you so much!
Judy R
ZEKE'S first swim Loved it !!
jessica t
great place for dogs I enjoy taking my dog to Swim dog wellness center. I love having a safe and clean place for her to do what she loves! Thanks for having a place like this for owners and pets.
Paula F
Our First Time Just a quick note to say we had a fantastic time last weekend! My 5-year old Border Collie, Maui - who had some experience dock-diving - thought he died and went to Swim-Heaven! The facility is top-notch and everyone is super-helpful and informative! We have 3 more appointments booked and can't wait to go back =)
Donna F
Stephanie Not only is this place the best but Stephanie was great to work with. Have already recommended this place to a couple of people.
Tracy L
Can't keep a lab out of water! Review of Stephanie V We made an appointment on short notice, and Stephanie welcomed us with enthusiasm. She made sure we had everything we needed, and told us about the special offers on services for that day. When it's hot outside and the algae are blooming on the local area, swim dog is the safest place for Miss Carly to have her swim fix!
Jill A
Such a FUN Experience for both dog and owner alike! We had the best time watching our dogs play in the pool. Stephanie was so good at coaching our dogs to learn the exit ramp and to play safely in the pool. Once they were confident, it was all about PLAY! The dogs really enjoyed the time swimming in the pool!
Lori K
Open swim So much fun spending time in the pool with my dogs Charlie and Norman!! Thank you
CB & Angel
Hooray! Many thanks to SwimDog and Stephanie for a great orientation session for Angel. I hope this helps my 13 year old maintain muscle mass in spite of the limited exercise she gets due to her arthritis. And she enjoyed it, too. What could be better? :o)
Traci W
Therapeutic massage Wonderful experience for both me & my dog. We'll definitely be coming back
Golee X
Wonderful! We had so much fun swimming! The two dogs have never swam before and they did great for being so afraid of the water. Can't wait to come back! :)
Michelle Z
Wonderful place!! Great fun!! I have had a great time both times I have been there with my dogs. Stephanie and Nita were wonderful with my dogs. Stephanie took the time to make sure every one of my dogs were getting comfortable with the water and what each individual dogs needs were!!! I will definitely be back for more!!! Great place and great people!!
Christen R
Love this place My dogs are having the best time learning to swim and the facility is great. Having a blast this summer going to Swimdog on a weekly basis. Staff is wonderful with my dogs!! If you want something fun to do, I highly recommend checking this place out.
Jen K
1st time swimmer I took our new rescue pup to SwimDog for his 1st visit yesterday & he did great! He was hesitant at first but Stephanie did such a wonderful job making him comfortable with using the ramp and getting him in water, that by the end of our session his was bringing the toy right back and was ready to jump back in the water. We will definitely be back!
Dixie N
review of first swim/orientation session We had two very happy dogs. I notice that Patqi, the older dog, had more zip and energy last eveing and even today. The lab was exhausted after the swim and snoozed a while. Michelle explained everything well for us and I was very pleased. we certainly will use the facility often.
Jillian C
nice facility Clean and we'll organized. Our dogs had a blast.
Nancy M
5 Woofs! Murphy and I both think SwimDog is the best way to spend 30 minutes of the day!
Lori B
Amazing! Don't know who enjoys the pool more, ours girls or us just being able to interact with them! It's an amazing facility and the staff has been wonderful! Very thankful for finding it!
Shannon S
Awesome place My dogs and I had a blast there for orientation. What a great idea!! We have a vizsla puppy that we wanted to introduce to the water and being able to do this in a more controlled environment where I was able to get into the water with my dogs was great. Our instructor was super helpful and was very gentle and patient with our not-so-fond of water aust. Cattle mix. I would highly recommend everyone brining their pups here for a swim, what an exercise it was for them. Ive already scheduled our next appointment and can't wait to go back!!
mike d
Tor Tor and I are grateful. Thanks, Stephanie
Brittany S
Amazing We were so impressed with how they trained our puppy to swim, within 30 minutes she went from a dog who had never experienced water to a dog who we couldn't get out of the pool. She loved it! Will definitely be back.
Cheryl S
The best Coaches I know The first time I went to SwimDog I did not know anything. But Nita and Rick help me and let meknow anything that I need to know. That why Annie and I did as good as we did at the Pier Pups in Green Bay on March 18 and 19.Plus I have a GREAT DOG[ANNIE]. The support that they have for people is SUPER ,SUPER GREAT .And they are happy to see you have fun with your Dogs, Do good. Rick love to teach you ever thing he know to make you better handler for you dog, And make you a better team. I am happy to part of TEAM SWIMDOG and to meet super people in the dog world
Emily B
Chips Experience This was chips first time at SwimDog Wellness Center. He had an awesome time!! Nita was a great instructor! Thank you for helping rebuild chips confidence. It's too bad that it's a two hour drive from where we live or else he would be there more often. This is a great facility and I would recommend it to anyone!!
Patti S
Swim review I love that there is a place where I can help my pup to swim. He can't last the whole half hour but if I share a spot with a friend, I think it will work perfectly! I'm hoping the more we come, the more he will like it!
Pamela G
great place I take my dogs there for owner assisted swimming. always very clean, dogs love it.
C. Filipiak
Great Time! My dog is a super active dog and needs regular exersice, daily walks are not enough. This was a fun way to get the dog out and active, that is different than the dog park. The staff was great! JP learned how to swim in the first visit! We will be back a lot more!
Tina J
Great time. Thank you. We had a great time and learned a lot on our 1st visit. Staff is really friendly. We have already scheduled 3 more swim sessions this month. Can't wait.
Kim S
Katie's First Swim Katie (after knee surgery) has been having lots of problems so we are trying out a new strategy. After first swim her activity level increased the next day. Still wobbly -- but seemingly better. Can't wait for her second swim.
Nicole B
Lots of fun Great place to relax and have fun with your dog.😀👍
Tiffany B
Swim Dog We brought our 6 year old black lab in for his first dock diving lesson and we could not have imagined it going any better! The facility was VERY clean! The staff was so very welcoming! Maverick loved jumping and swimming. We will definitely be returning!

Tor's first time in the pool Many thanks, Stephanie. He looked good in the water. You did a great job. We will be back soon. Mike
Connie F
Wonderful Experience Review of Self Serve Dog Wash Used the self serve dog wash for the first time. Very convenient, easy to use, and non threatening for the dog. I believe the happy sounds of the dogs in the pool made our dog more at ease.

fun day for a recovering dog Our dog is recovering from TPLO surgery and her 30 min in the pool was great for her. Have already booked another swim for next week and have purchased a package so we plan on using this great service a lot in the future.

Advanced Private DockDiving Review of Rick Laes I am sooo happy we have Rick who helps us improve our and our dog's skills for DockDiving competitions! The personal time is immensely helpful. Rick is helping Sadie get back in the Big Air groove, & she can't wait to work on EV!! Not enough stars for Rick!
Brittney W
What a great experience! I wasn't sure what to expect when I first signed up for the the orientation class, but afterwards I was sure glad I did! The staff was very friendly and helpful! My dogs had an absolutely wonderful time and I can't wait to bring them again!
Steven J
Great First time What a great first time swimming with my big goldens but were they chicken. Lisa got them in the pool and it was great. I can't wait to come back! Steve
Dana S
Hydrotherapy Session My first appointment was such a surprise. My dog Waylon was on 11 weeks of post tplo surgery. What a great time he had swimming. We only swam him for 20 min. I expected him to be sore that weekend, but he wasn't and the swim actually help him become more balanced on home on the kitchen floor. Looking forward to our next session !
Kelly J
Awesome Review of Stephanie V Love when she's there!
Kelly J
Awesome I love this place. My dogs enjoy coming and they not only have a good time but so do we!
Bill and Laurie S
A Golden's Dream Come True! Our Goldens adore Swim Dog's pool and so do we! The pool and pool area are spotless and well maintained. Stephanie was very helpful in the orientation process guiding our dogs in and out of the pool. I have always wanted to swim with my dogs and now my dream came true! My only regret is that we didn't find it sooner. Our dogs love it and we love watching them having so much fun!🏊🎾🐾
Kelly J
A happy dog is a tired dog Not much tires out our Sulley but now we have swim dog and he comes home and goes right to sleep! :) Very happy dog mom
Erin V
Awesome place! My dog is a year old golden retriever and she loves to swim here! Always clean and Stephanie is wonderful!
Tim S
Great exercise for Husker! Love being able to take our lab Husker to SwimDog on cold winter days. He gets a great workout in and is content to be less demanding about getting out for walks. Glad we hav a place like this in the Fox Valley! Thank you!
Beckie K
Physically & mentally great for your dog Our chocolate lab first came to swim dog wellness center for Aqua therapy following knee surgery. Swimming really helped with his recovery both physically and mentally. He loves swimming and I would highly recommend swim dog wellness center to anyone for post surgery therapy, general exercise, or just another option for something fun to do with your dog.
Amanda H
Confidence in the water Our dog George loves SwimDog, which is amazing because when we rescued him he was terrified of water. The team at SwimDog helped George get accustomed to the water and are always kind and helpful. We'e very thankful for all their hard work!
Brenda B
Elli's 1st water experience We brought almost 9 mo. old Elli to introduce her to water. Stephanie was wonderful with all of us but especially Elli! She was happy friendly and built up Elli to the point she was playing fetch in the water! One of the best part was seeing how much fun stephanie was having also! Great place we are definitely coming back! Thank you!
Mary Jo D
Fun at SwimDog Had a wonderful first visit at SwimDog, it's a great facility. My dog loved it!
William S
Fantastic Experience We had our orientation with Lisa. She was awesome! Definitely loves dogs, great personality and made our first time amazing. Our Golden Retriever and our German Shepard had a blast! With Lisa's help they both got the hang of getting in and out of the pool quickly and enjoyed their swim time. Rinsed them in the tub, blew them almost dry. We have another appointment booked and cannot wait! Excellent value! Cant wait to try tue owner assisted swim too and thinking our 13 1/2 year old lab might benefit from a therapeutic swim!!! 100% recommend!! Bill and Nicole Smith
Good clean (and wet) Fun! Winter blues getting your dogs down? Then Swimdog Wellness is for them! The first time the dog goes, the patient staff will help acquaint your pup with the pool. Once the dog takes to water, then the time spent there is fun, fun, fun!
Kari T
Packer's Swim lessons Thank you Stephanie for your patience with Packer. It is so much fun to watch his progression from week to week. We have enjoyed our experience at Swim Dog Wellness. Thanks
Alice & Tom A
Callie & Cooper We have been very satisfied Stephanie. As you know, Callie needs more surgery on her leg & because of our schedules, can not have it until Feb. 12. She has been limping more so Dr. Pat thinks he needs to go in & remove the knot from her surgery & that should help her. And we don't need to tell you how much Cooper loves coming. Callie will need 2 weeks off & then will be back after seeing Dr. Pat for the okay. Thanks for everything.
Sandi & Bill M
So much fun! Our 2 labs absolutely love going to Swim Dog Wellness Center. They just play & play the whole time and then sleep the whole ride home.
Julie
We'll be back Great experience. Very organized. Very perceptive of the dogs' abilities and needs. Had a great time and left with a tired dog. I'll be back. Thank you!
Mike S
Great as always We have only been there a few times but always a positive.I hope to be able to get back there next week.TJ loves it, and already have an idea what we would like to try in the pool the next time we are there
Randi Davis
Our First Visit to SwimDog We were warmly greeted, walked through the process, and left our appointment feeling well exercised and happy. Thank you for the great customer service and the beautiful pool!
Cheryl S
Dock jump class on monday Review of Dock Jumping Sessons- Nita Iearn a lot from Nita that night she show me how to throw the toy to get big jumps. Then we start work on speed ret. I like working with Nita , She answered all my question I had . Just a great person to work I will work with again
Katie H
Mia loves it This has been a perfect rehab option for my lab with a recovering torn acl. Steph is always super helpful.

Fabulous I always enjoy bringing my dog to swim dog wellness. The staff is knowledgeable and incredibly helpful!
Lori K
Free swim Charlie, Norman live swimming and I love it I can go into the pool with them!!
Scott I
Fun Our little pup had so much fun. She slept the rest of the night she swam so hard. Can't wait to come back.
Nancy P
Fun! Review of Stephanie V Thank you Stephanie! Storm's first swim session was a great success. I think this is going to be wonderful for her rehabilitation after her acl surgery. Thanks for your patience and encouragement. I think you did such a wonderful job initiating Storm's entrance into the pool.
Sandi & Bill M
Great experience Our 2 dogs loved the personal attention from Stephanie almost as much as they enjoyed the swimming. Great facility!
Stephanie Z
Great experience...we will be back! Review of Lisa G My husband and I took our 1 yr old German Shepherd (Teddy) to Swim Dog on Saturday for an Orientation swim. Teddy had FHO surgery in July (for hip dysplasia) and has recovered well, but we hesitate taking him for walks right now because of the ice. We were a little anxious as to what to expect. We knew Teddy would probably not be a fan of the initial entrance into the water. Lisa was very reassuring and did a great job slowly introducing him into the pool. She was very knowledgeable on Teddy's condition. We will definitely be back. Thanks Lisa!
Jaime S
GREAT first experience! Review of Self Serve Dog Wash I stumbled upon the Center while searching for an Appleton area self-service dog wash and I'm so glad I did! The staff was super helpful in acquainting us with the dog wash and whole facility. The tub and dryer are really nice and having shampoo, towels, a curry and brushes to use is very convenient. We will definitely plan to use the wash again and are looking into use of the pool!
Jack C
Holmes the ultimate water dog!! We're so pleased with Holmes water therapy. His leg is stronger and he's overcoming the fear if water. Swimming has opened a new chapter in his life. Thank you SwimDog. Jack & Katherine
Tim S
Husker Workout Husker gets a wonderful 30 minute winter indoor workout at SwimDog. Always a treat for him!
Lab loved it Stephanie was very helpful and understanding as a trainer. Our lab was more and more comfortable by the end of the session. We will definitely go again!
Lisa N
My Happy Lab My Lab, Buck, loves swim dogs. He can swim in the warm indoor pool during the winter months. This is so good for his well being. The staff is so helpful and kind! Swim Dogs is always a fun place to be!
Kelly B
So fun! What a fun place to take your dog family! Staff was super nice and very helpful in teaching our dogs to swim! Scheduling our next appointment soon! Kelly
Heidi H
SwimDog is the best My Dogs had an absolutely wonderful time, so much so that they didn't even want to get out of the water. We will definitely be going back.
Patty H
Vivian I took Vivian for a half hour free swim on Friday, January 8th and she never quit. When it was time for us to go dry off she kept pulling me back to the pool. I think she needs a 45 minute swim next time!
Lindsey K
Wonderful supportive environment I've gone to Swim Dog with my dog who has required two cruciate repair surgeries. The swimming has tremendously helped with her recovery, however the support the staff gives is amazing. They are all very friendly and knowledgeable, they seem to truly enjoy their jobs which is very refreshing and makes this a place I really enjoy going. My dog is not a natural swimmer and is slightly fearful in new situations, but they have helped her develop at least confidence in the water, even though it will probably never be her favorite. So much appreciation for what they do!
Becky H
Great first experience!!!! Stephanie was so welcoming and positive! We had a GREAT first time at Swim Dog Wellness. We will be back!
Nicola R
Thanks Thanks so much! Dogs loved it...well Palmer did and it was good for brina's joints! It was really nice being able to book the same day and not in advance!
Sally F
Great service Review of Stephanie V So good to see you at SwimDog. You always are so helpful, pleasant personality, good with dogs and people😀

11-4 -2015 Swim I heard Callie did great. And no limping last night or today so far! Good job!!
Laura H
orientation My 13 yr old dog had her swimming review yesterday, the first time she's been swimming ever. she was hesitant to walk down the ramp but once she was in the water she did very well. Stepanie was very patient with her and let her rest between laps. we plan to come back frequently to help her arthritis.
Vicki H
Positive experience and advice Always know my dogs and I are in great hands!'
Sarah
Wonderful! What a wonderful facility. My two labs loved it there and we will definitely be making use of SwimDog this winter to burn off some energy inside!
Laura H
2nd time in Stephanie worked with Zora for orientation and then her 2nd time in the pool. She was caring and gentle and understood an older dogs needs.
Alice A
Swim Rehab I was very satisfied with Callie's swimming "rehab" yesterday. She was a little sore Friday night but today she is running around & playing with the other pups, which she shouldn't be doing. No limping at all. So she did fine. See you On Wednesday. Thank you. Very happy with her session.
Roseann S
Assessment appointment Review of Nita W Lucy my Newfie had a great experience at Swim Dog wellness. Lucy had been in water but nothing deep enough for her to swim. It took her a little bit to get comfortable with everything but Nita was great from beginning to end with encouragement for Lucy and pointers for me. Lucy passed so now we can lose the water wings and enjoy. Kidding they don't have water wings for dogs. Do they? After she's really comfortable in the water I want to take her to a dock dog class and see if it's something we want to pursue Thank you Nita for the a fun experience.
Beckie K
thank you- great experience Review of Kim D Kim was wonderful and Really put the safety of our Chocolate Lab first
John P
Brodie's First Swim We took our 20 week old Labradoodle pup Brodie for his first swim at SwimDog Wellness Center recently. After a little trepidation at first, he was soon responding to his trainer's promptings and enjoying his maiden swim lesson. We rounded off the day by using the bathing facilities to give Brodie a luxurious bath and shampoo. We'll be back!
Diane M
Excellent facility SwimDog is more than willing to accommodate reasonable requests. Kim was happy to assist with my dog's practice for her World Championship competition. We're happy to tell others we train at SwimDog for Dock Diving!!!
Lori k
Free swim My hubby said that Norman and Charlie had a good time :)
Jamie P
Nails and Self-service Dog Wash Services were great, the place was very clean, and the self-service dog wash/dry worked well
Scott K
New dog swim Great facility and staff. They work hard to insure the dogs are comfortable in the water. We have one dog that is unsure of herself and in the 30 minutes we were there, her confidence grew.
Ann M
Owner-assisted swim Loved getting in the pool with my dog, we both enjoyed it!
Roseann S
Second swim class My Lucy is coming along on her swimming. It's such a great idea to have a place such as Swim Dog so our furbabies have a clean and safe enviroment to practice their "paddling". I was even able to stay and observe a dock dog perfecting his skill for his next competition. Thank you for providing a venue where my baby to play in the water.
Roseann S
Swimming with the dog This is the 3rd time at Swim Well. My dog just lives it there. I still can't get her to jump off the dock but someday I"m sure. Thank you for providing a place for Lucy to swim
Mary M
Fantastic swim with my dog!!! I am so-o-o happy to have a clean wonderful place to swim and practice water work with my dog. Thank you!!!!!!
Scott K
free swim Great facilty. Our dog absolutely loves going to swim which is helping him recover from knee surgery. He can't wait to get in, and unfortunately doesn't like to leave. Quite the chore to get him out.
Mary m
coopers 3rd lesson Really enjoyed the assisted lesson. Very satisfied!

Britt F
Very very pleased Our 3 1/2 month old corgi is not a fan of water and I was a bit nervous that he wouldn't even get his feet wet but Melissa was great with him and I can't wait to take him back and try again!
Lindsey K
Wonderful experience! I took both of my Pit mixes in for their swim test with Lisa and I was pleasantly surprised at how well she worked with them. Because they are Pit mixes, they aren't allowed at certain doggy day cares, and I never once felt like we weren't welcome. They are both well-behaved social dogs, and I truly feel that was the only thing that was looked at. Both of my dogs are fearful of the water and she handled them wonderfully, talked to them in a way that I would talk to them. One of them took to the water better than the other, but I was not expecting to get such hands on assistance with Lisa getting in the water. One of my dogs recently had cruciate repair surgery and Lisa handled her wonderfully while her normally strong legs were weaker than normal and it took her time to adjust going from the water to land. I am definitely going back!!

SwimDog rocks! Thunder, our golden, will be 12 in November and was diagnosed with hip dysplasia in his right hip recently. After his swim test and two more assisted swims, he was able to get up the ramp on his own and insists on not having any help. I am so happy that Nita opened this facility since our goldens love to swim. I recommend it to anyone that wants to exercise their dogs. Thanks, Nita! SwimDog rocks!!!

assist swim Kim was great with Cooper!!! I could see an improvement with Cooper and this was his first time at SwimDog Wellness!!!!.
Lindsay S
Fun! My 8 year old Labrador has NEVER wanted to swim on her own but after just a few minutes with Kim, she was swimming unassisted. It was awesome to see and we had so much fun! Kim was awesome and very good with my nervous pup. Thanks!
Stephanie M
LOVE IT! My dogs are doing so well, learning to swim! The assistants have been wonderful, and I am delighted with the facility and staff!

Orientation Swim Review of Lisa G Lisa was great with both of our dogs. I would highly recommend Lisa and Swim Dog. We will definitely be back.
Excellent experience!!!! My 6 month old lab was afraid of being introduced to water at first. When he worked with the staff at SwimDog, after 3 minutes he was plummeting himself off of the dock and swimming pretty fearlessly. Thank you SwimDog!!!!!
Lucy S
The Best! I Love Swim Dog!!!
Alexis O
from non=swimmer to swimmer each time we go our dog enjoys himself more and more, staff is always warm and helpful.

Open swim My boys love it and so do I

Swim Orientation We really enjoyed our orientation at Swim Dog. My dog is really timid and was nervous having someone else around but Kim did a great job giving him space when he needed it. I am really excited to bring Basil back and watch him continue to gain confidence.
Mike S
Thank you Ever since we discovered that our Golden has muscle wasting, we've been bringing him to Swim Dog. He loves it and it's helping build up his muscle. It's great to see that something he enjoys so much is also helping him.

Pool Trainintg Review of Dock Jumping Class SwimDog Wellness Center and Nita are a great source for learning dock diving. Nita is experienced, patient, and knowledgeable trainer, she is equally adept at introducing the inexperienced dog to swimming as she is to find tuning the competition dog.

Fun, Fun, Fun We just finished our second swim session, and we are so excited to have discovered Nita and Swimdog! She was gentle yet persuasive getting our seven year old dog to REALLY swim for the first time. On our second visit, they both jumped right in and enjoyed their free swim, fetching all of Nita's fun toys out of the water. We'll be coming back and recommending Swimdog to everyone :-)
Lori k
Free Swim Awesome!!!!!! Thank you we had lots of fun
Tracy
Dog Days of Summer! Carly absolutely loves the opportunity to safely cool down at Swim Dog during the summer!!
Erika G
Great experience! My dog started out afraid to swim but his confidence grew in just one session!
Kendra C
Great Introduction to swimming! I took my girl Aspen to SwimDog Wellness for her first introduction to swimming. She is a cautious dog but was given plenty of time and positive encouragement. By the end she was much more confident and relaxed....and TIRED...and added bonus!
alexis o
swimdog We always have a great experience there. Nita is very knowledgeable and helpful.
Chris B
Sonny Boy My Husband and I took our 10 year old lab to Swim Dog Wellness Center last week. Even though he is a swimmer, he was a little hesitant, being unfamiliar with swimming in a pool. Thanks to Nita's coaxing, he was in and out several times during our time there. Looking forward to going back :)
Heather Y
Love it! Always a blast! Turn on some music and we have a blast playing with our black lab maxi.super clean and friendly!
Linda S
Fantastic Shiloh had a great time at her first Swim Dog class. I have rarely seen her so excited and Nita was a huge help. We learned alot and I am looking forward to our next class!
Susan M
First Swim My dog has never liked water and had never been swimming. At the very first swim session he actually went in the water and was swimming with a life vest. By mid session he was swimming without the life vest! Couldn't be happier. Nita was awesome with my dog.
Nancy M
Exceeded Expectations! Far & away worth every minute. I'm so happy that SwimDog exists in this community! It was a thrill to see my pup swimming for the first time. He was in good hands with Nita. Definitely looking forward to our next swim :)
Alexis O
Reluctant Dog Conquers Phobia with Fun! Thanks to Nita and her loving expertise my non-retrieving dog passed his beginner class and ended up surprising all of us by enjoying retrieving the toys. We look forward to other enjoyable times at SWimDog!
first swim Highly recommend SwimDog. My 3 dogs had a great time due to the patient staff helping them adjust to a new experience. They want to come back again!
Lori k
Free swim Amazing!!!
Allie R
Awesome! my dogs had so much fun - I felt bad because one of them was rather difficult and kept splashing the employee in the face but she was always willing to get them back in the pool and help them get acclimated to it!
Pam U
Reluctant Retriever I have an 11 month old golden retriever who could swim but was reluctant because he was afraid. By the end of one lesson with Melissa, he became comfortable with going down our ramplike seawall and fetching the tennis ball. This is a wonderful facility. Who knew a retriever would need help learning to be comfortable in deep water.
Dawn R
One lesson and off and running! Wednesday Carbon had his first lesson at the SwimDog Wellness Center for Dock Diving, combined with his swim orientation. Thursday I took him to league jumping at SwimDog, and he loved it even more. Saturday in Cedar Rapids we entered a DockDogs official competition. I knew nothing about the sport. Thanks to Nita's expert guidance, Carbon took 3rd place in the Junior Division, bypassing Novice all together. Thanks Nita!
April F
Great Service This is a great service to our community and I am so grateful I found you! Bully friendly and very resourceful!
Mike and Gloria
Awesome The SwimDog Wellness Center is a great way for our golden retriever to exercise a back paw that has degenerated. He loves it, the SwimDog team is great and it's affordable.
Diane M
Dogs Love It, "Fur Parents" do too! Swim Dog is a great new business that offers services for dogs not at their physical best, using water therapy and swimming. For those dogs that love water, this is a place for them to swim, or learn new skills. My year old Lab who loves water learned Dock Diving rules!! The facility is spotless, pool is kept up to high standards and owner Nita shows her skills and knowledge to help make the visit fun for all!
Great fun and therapeutic! Since my dogs have been going to SwimDog, their overall health has improved.
Margaret (Peggy) D
awesome time at SwimDog Wellness Center Had a wonderful time at the swim dog center, and my goldendoodle was thoroughly enjoying the water and activities in it. Thanks to Nita for a gentle start with her and will be returning for more swimming.
Gloria S
Murphy's Stamp of Approval! My 12 year old chocolate lab, Murphy, had a great experience at the Swim Dog Wellness Center. We will definitely be back for regular swims. Nita was awesome in getting him comfortable and before you knew it...the lab was retrieving again. Happy Day!
Barb S

Kim H
Excellent Great place. Very clean. Great staff. Dog loved it!!!
Devan Kuether
Excellent facility, easy access! It's an excellent facility, centrally located for easy access for anyone in the Fox Valley & surrounding areas! Access to a full size pool with gates & ramps for dock-dog training and general swiming. Only feedback I would give would be to have different set ups for the different dock-dog divisions (big air, EV, and Speed Retrieve). Other than that, hard to beat this place!!
Nick L
Love it This place is great! Highly recommend!
Lori k
Free Swim Charlie and Norman had an awesome time!! I was so exited when Norm Didn't have to wear a life jacket!! Amazing especially from a dog that didn't Want to go in the pool!! My friend Cindy was there to watch my boys And she bought toys for her dogs at home!!!
Cindy K
It Was Awesome. Both of my dogs Loved it. And the staff is awesome.we already made another appt.
Beth E
Always a good time! Jetta loves going to Swim Dog. She always has a great time and it is good exercise for her that is not hard on her joints. So glad you guys opened up in the Valley!
June M A
Moxie Another amazing experience at Swimdog. Nita took our 4mo. old lab puppy in the water for the 1st time & within minutes he was swimming like an otter. The warm water & her expert guidance made this a positive, fun learning session. So pleased!! Thanks Nita!
Patricia R
Isobel is doing better We had a great session with Nita over the weekend. Isobel did swim to the other end with a little coaxing and then back to the ramp to get out. This is a different way for her to get a different type of exercise. Thank you Nita!
Erin H
First time It was our 4-month-old pup's first time swimming. He was nervous but he wasn't pushed beyond his comfort level. We set up another appointment and have high hopes we'll increase his comfort level! The facility was wonderful!
Lori k
Open swim So much fun!! Happy tired dogs !! Best of all I got to spend Time with my boys without any distractions. Perfect :)
David G
awsome Ive been to the center twice now, and each visit has been great. My dog is not a swimmer, but they are making more progress with him each time we are there.
Jill R
Great tub! Review of Self Serve Dog Wash So easy to get my older lab in the tub. Everything worked well. Looking forward to getting him in for a swim next time.
Kendall K
Wrigley LOVES Swim Dog! I brought my lab, Wrigley, in for a 30 minute swim, which was perfect for him to work off all his energy and stress from me being away on business. Now he is a relaxed, affectionate companion again.
Patricia R
Molly did great with Isobel! Isobel is a 95 lb Rhodesian Ridgeback and has never been swimming, but I wanted to see if she would do well in the pool. It was great to give her the experience of doing something different and going into deeper water. Thank you Molly for working with Isobel and making her feel comfortable while we were there. We have already scheduled another session :) Isobel is sending some more sloppy kisses your way XOXO
Lesha W
We love it here! Nita did a great job getting Stella into the pool and being comfortable. Stella loves her time at SwimDog and I love to see her happy. We'll be regulars!
Jan M
A Golden's Dream My dog, Hannah, loves going to SwimDog. The minute I bring out her "towel bag" she knows where we are going. I believe she smiles! The staff is great and the facility is very well run.
Lori k
Open swim Awesome wonderful. Love watch my boys when they get in the water. Amazing and fun
Debra K
First swim at facility My dog loves to swim. She enjoyed her first visit and is asking when she can go back.
Pamela B
Wonderful! Lily and Archer loved swimming at SwimDog! This facility offers a fantastic experience for dogs and humans alike and gave our dogs a fun workout. We look forward to our next visit.

Vicki R
Great experience Our labs had a blast playing in the pool. Nita was fantastic to work with and we highly recommend taking your pets to SwimDog! We will definitely be returning. Thank you Nita and staff. Bathing station is also top notch.
Elizabeth T
Amazing! From the moment you walk through the door you are greeted with a friendly energetic atmosphere! It is obvious that they care very much about making your visits fun and comfortable! It is wonderful to have such a great place to spend quality time with our four legged family members. This is more than just a place for a dog to swim. It is a happy place for dogs and owners to bond over physical and mental excercise. My boys had the time of their lives and we will be returning often!
Julie S
swimming I took my 10 yr old lab swimming and he loved it! It only took 3 times to get in the water then he was jumping! We both had fun!
Katelyn M
Wonderful! Review of Molly J We love taking our lab to SwimDog. He has the best time! Molly made us feel really welcome there.
Jesse V
Great staff and definitely going back We have two older dogs who love to swim and need some low impact exercise. Molly was absolutely wonderful with getting both dogs acclimated to the ramp and pool. By the end of the time, both were having a blast and all were smiling as we left.
Rick L
Melissa Melissa is great!

Wonderful Time! Phoebe Jo had a wonderful time at Swim Dog! We will be back for more fun!
Hawthorne's Mom
First Experience We had a wonderful first experience at SwimDog Wellness Center and are looking forward to going back. Our 5 month old puppy hadn't been in water except for baths and he loved it. We wanted to make sure he was introduced in a comfortable setting before having him exposed to the many lake trips in the summer. Nita was wonderful with him! Thanks!
Mike D
Great time! Many thanks to you, Nita and Molly. Wilson is coming along. I'll see you on Tuesday morning. Mike
Carolyn S
Wonderful Massage Nita did a fantastic job again giving Lucy (12 yr old Golden Retriever) a massage. Nita takes the time to work out all the areas that need extra attention as well as giving me some pointers on how to massage those areas too. Thanks again Nita for taking such good care of Lucy, she is like new again! Look out squirrels!!
Nick L
Thumbs up Everything was great. Love your facility!
Ricardo D
Awesome!! Amazing place!! Very friendly and knowledgable staff! Very clean!! Our Buddy boy's new favorite place to go!!
Tracy L
Carly's Swimdog Debut! Carly, a black lab, required no persuasion to belly flop into the water after her favorite ball! We are thrilled with the opportunity to provide her with access to her favorite activity all year round! And the water's always warm! We are impressed with the size of the pool, the cleanliness of the facility, and the amenities, like the easy-approach grooming tub. And Nita is friendly and knowledgeable about canine health and fitness. I felt completely safe about the equipment, freeing us up to have a blast, or should I say splash!
Dawn Y
Zeffee and Nakia's swim experience Molly was patient and encouraging and fun. I tried to take a video, but my camera skills on phone disappeared!. I think Swim Dog is an excellant addition to the fox cities. Next, a south east side location?
Laura B
Great exercise and fun activity to do with your dogs! Our Labrador absolutely loved the water, and Nita was even able to get our dachshund swimming and enjoying it. Facility is very clean and welcoming. We will be back!
Annette Vanden Heuvel
WOW! I took both of my Golden Retrievers to Swim Dogs on Friday and we were all very happy! What a welcome business to have for those dog lovers who know how important exercise is to our 'kids'. The younger dog fetched the whole time, once she figured out how to get in the water...and the elder dog altho hesitant at first, needed less guidance after awhile. The owner is friendly, helpful, encouraging, outgoing and will do a great job with this business venture. I will and have been telling all my other dog moms and dads about this place!
Jamie S
Awesome Facility Nita did a great job getting our 7 month old German Shepherd into the water. Our dog was very scared and unwilling to get into the water. But by the end of our session she had enough courage to jump into the pool all on her own! Nita does an awesome job!
Kelly M
4 paws up x 4 We continue to bring our 4 dogs to SwimDog for assisted swim. My two old boys are 13 yr old lab-mixes who have hip dysplasia among other medical conditions. I was hoping to achieve improvement in the muscle mass and increase mobility, but what I saw was much more than that. They are happier, more interactive and playful. I can not thank Nita and Molly enough for improving their mental well-being during their golden years. The Force is still strong with Luke and Vader.
Tami H
AMAZING we are beyond thrilled that we found this facility when our little Yorkie became handicapped we didn't know how we were going to handle her disability going to swim dog has helped her muscles reengage and gain strength I am so thankful for both ladies and for this facility
June Ashford
Feather & Moses Both my dogs had a great time at Swimdog Wellness. The pool was clean, not heavily clorinated, the ramp was easy to access & their introduction went smoothly. We did a bath afterwards so my dogs came home smelling fresh & more importantly---tired! Awesome facility Nita---I highly recommend to all dog owners. Try it--you & your dogs will love it!!
Deborah S
Great time was had by all Took my girls for their first visit to Swim Dog. They learned the system well and were soon jumping and fetching without problem. Be prepared to have wet shoes and pants from your dog's shaking off right by you; your dog is just showing you his or her pleasure!
Kim K
Great Experience Was a great time at Swim Dog, River had a great time and I did also! Cant wait to come back! Well worth the trip and money!
Jenny M
First Time Visit Gumbo is a lab who loves to swim, and I am so glad we found SwimDog! He acted like a puppy, and had a big smile on his face the whole time. Can't wait to get him back there!
Amanda H
Great for timid dogs Our dog was afraid of going all the way into the water when we first brought him to SwimDog, but his orientation helped him to have fun in the water and the staff were very helpful and encouraging. He continues to get braver every time we go! SwimDog has a clean and causal atmosphere and is a wonderful place to use some energy!
Bob & Christie Z
Dogs LOVE it here! We have two labs, one being a young puppy. Both just love going swimming here. We can't get them to leave when our session is done. Great place!
Cindy C
So grateful for SwimDog I am so appreciative to have found SwimDog for my dog after he was diagnosed with disc issues in his back - he's loving it! Nita and Molly are wonderful with the dogs, and it's just incredible to have a safe, clean and private pool for them to swim in! Aside from the therapeutic benefits for my dog, I'm also finding it one of the most fun ways to share time together.
Nicole B
Exceptional experience! My dog LOVES coming here! It is a great way to burn off some extra energy and the staff are about the nicest people you will meet. Would give 10 stars if it were an option.
Cindy F
A Pawsitivley Great Time..:) Crosbie & Carmel had a super fun time again at Swim Dog. In fact when I turn off hwy 15, they get all excited & know where they are going.
Lori k
Free Swim Charlie and Norman had an awesome time on Saturday!! Thank you for calling us when you had a cancelation so their dad could see them swim!!
Jackie K
Great experience Overall, a great experience for both dog and owner. Appointment system is easy to navigate, very helpful info provided prior to appt and knowledgeable, helpful staff. Will use facility again in future and recommend to other dog owners.
Pat P
Awesome experience After the first 10 minutes I was thinking "Oh dear, I don't think my dog is going to take to swimming". He was VERY reluctant to go into the water. Nita was very patient and kept working with him until he finally "took the plunge". After a few times throwing his toy into the pool, he was going after it like a pro. I really value the information Nita shared about dogs and how they react to indoor pools, what motivates them, their swimming styles and all the other great information she gave me. My dog and I will be putting SwimDog on our list of fun activities to do on a regular basis. It's great exercise and great fun! Thank you, Nita!
Lori k
Free swim Lots of fun!! Charlie and Norman love it!!
James S
3rd visit and more to come I heard about this on the radio and I'm glad I did. We take our 6 month old golden here and she has a blast. The staff is great and very helpful. Not to mention they have a dog wash station and dryer.
Roy B
Good times... And personable.
Elizabeth W
First Session Review The first session was phenomenal! The teacher was so good with my dog and was very personable as well. My dog absolutely loved it and we plan to be back for many more sessions!
Julie M
Great Winter Workout Review of Molly J Our dog was restless due to lack of exercise. This tired her out!
carrie
What a great set up and facility! We were not sure what to expect, but were thrilled with everything and we look forward to coming back.
Cindy C
An amazing treat for my dog and me! What Nita has offered with Swim Dog is beyond wonderful. My dog needed gentle exercise for his back issues. Here I don't have to worry about bad weather, dirty water, or the threat of other dogs. He has the heated pool all to himself and it gives us a chance to just play with him and really enjoy quality time together.
Carol C
swimming with Taylor, a 11 year old lab. personel were very helpful.
Cheryl C
Awesome facility This is an amazing facility and far beyond what most would expect for the Appleton area. It is very well designed, extremely well kept and very professionally run. We used it to introduce our 6mo old Boykin Spaniel to water during the frigid Wisconsin winter. She loved it!
Dawn Y
Had a wonderful time watching my ;girls" swim. My 4 yr old and 8 yr old Shitzu/Bichon 18 to 21 lb gurls had a blast. Furst time little actually went after balls...ever...but she swam after them and retrievef them quickly. Amazing. Our oldest who hasnt been near water in 5 years jumped off the side of pool to get ball. They did so wellon forst day. Thanks Nita for encouraging them and getting them off to a great start for.many more swims.
Beth E
Miss Jetta had a great time! We had our orientation session today and then Jetta had her swim test. Nina was great to work with and in no time had Jetta swimming. Have recommended Swim Dog to numerous people. We will be booking sessions soon.
Erin J
Great Place Nita was very personable and friendly with our dog, my husband and I. The pool was clean. I didn't think our dog would go in the water and with Nita's help she went in and continued to go in by herself. We will be returning.
Pam
Great exercise for the dogs! Dogs had a wonderful time. Staff is pleasant and professional and has the best interest of the dog in mind at all times.
Kathy K
Had a blast We took two of our Tollers to Swim Dog yesterday and they just had a blast. One never jumped in before but it didn't take her long and she was swimming and dock diving like a fish. It was so great for the dogs to enjoy the warm water and get a chance to let our dogs have some fun. We will be returning again. Already signed up.
Erika L
LOVE this place! I am so thankful to Nita for providing a place for dogs to swim. My 14 year old dog has always loved swimming and I've always wished there were somewhere to take here (even in winter). my wish has come true with SwimDog Wellness. My dog has arthritis and doesn't get around well, but she did great in the pool and wasn't even sore afterward. We will definitely be going back. In addition, Nita went in the pool with my dog and was very caring and good with my pup. She is great.
Katherine H
How much fun did my old golden's have swimming Tons. They were standing at the back of my Traverse this afternoon looking at me as if to say "let's go swimming." I can't imagine a better exercise for them than the pool, and was thrilled when I heard about "Swimdog Wellness". Thank you for being there.
Peggy L
Lucy's visit on Sat. Jan. 17 It was such a fun, rewarding experience with Lucy, we have scheduled two more free swims and recommend your facility to many of our friends who have already made appointments! Please post a picture of Lucy on Facebook if you have one. I didn't get any! Thanks, Peggy Littlefield
Kate P
Open Swim - 3 very happy Golden Retrievers My first open swim after our orientation was a great success! I stayed relatively dry and was able to rotate my Goldens so they all had fun and were tired when we were done. I feel like I've made a great discovery with Swim Dog and would highly recommend it! Thanks Nita
Chris S
Labs love Our 2 labs love to swim and are full of energy. They love swim dogs. We tell everyone about how much fun it is to let our dogs swim in clean water year round
Cindy F
🐾 🐾,s up to Nita! Crosbie & Carmel had a absolutely fantastic time swimming. Carmel my 10 month old is a little on the shy side & within a few minutes, Nita had her diving into the pool. I think she will become a Dock Dog! Once Crosbie figured out how to use the ramp, we could barely keep him out of the water. We can,t wait to go back.
Mike d
Wilson - AWS The time was excellent. We look forward to returning soon. Thanks for all your help. Mike
Jamie L
GREAT PLACE FOR DOGS!! My labrador loves this place! What a fantastic idea for exercising your dog safely in winter! My coonhound is NOT a natural swimmer and Nita was very patient, yet firm enough, to get him in the pool safely and give him a number of tries. We'll be coming back, for sure! Fair prices, clean facility.
Lori K
Charlie and Norman What fun they are having learning to swim!! I love Watching them get more comfortable in the water!! Thank you!!
Carolyn S
Awesome My Golden Retriever had a great time swimming at SwimDog. She has some arthritis and the nice warm water helped her work those muscles. Nita did a great job getting her to use the ramp which she was leary of at first. Thank you so much Nita for having this beautiful place to take our dogs for some good exercise and fun!
Andrea B
Indoor Puppy Fun! Both our dogs enjoyed jumping and swimming. Was a great way to rid of energy since it's too cold to be outside!
Kate P
Such fun for the dogs and for me! Nita is just as wonderful as her facility! I'm not sure who had more fun, me or my dogs. My dogs love to swim and this was a great way to exercise them in the winter. Nita wasn't kidding when she warned me that I'd get wet :)
Renee p
Swimdog wellness My 8 year old yellow lab just loves it here! Fetches her ball the whole time! Highly recommend this place!!
Gina P
Dog wash was clean and easy to use. Review of Self Serve Dog Wash We will be there for all our baths even though Linus was petrified. Nita was wonderful with him and we hope to have him swimming soon.
CRIS & MARK L
Lewis dogs enjoyed first SwimDog experience I took my 4 month old Lab and 10 yrs old Dachshund to SwimDog for their evals last week. As a long-time (now retired) swim coach, I know the value of swimming for muscle tone, endurance, safe and fun exercise. My dogs had never been swimming, but both enjoyed it and we look forward to more!
Britt S
Genius idea! Great idea that allows active dogs something to do in the (many) months of WI weather when going outside isn't as feasible. My golden loved swimming and fetching in the pool, and she learned to use the ramp quickly! Nita did a great job encouraging her and we were off and jumping/swimming in no time!
Jann T
We loved it! This was our dogs first swimming experience. Nita was so patient and encouraging. We will be back! Thank You😊
Stephanie I
Great Idea! Very nice place! Nita was awesome in helping my dogs get acclimated!
Kari H
Awesome Facility! Great place! Our dogs were unsure at first as they had never been swimming but definitely surprised us! They were so exhausted after our session! Swimming is great exercise for them and Swim Dog is a wonderful facility for them to swim. Will be going back as soon as we can!
Jennifer B
Awesome experience We brought our 2 golden retrievers in to swim and they had so much fun. This is a great facility and a wonderful addition to the community. Nita was so patient and kind with our dogs. They loved it! We will definitely be going back.
Nicole B
Great place! This is a great location to exercise your dog! Very clean facility attended by an extremely knowledgeable dog person. My dog had a great time!
Katina N
Awesome Our dog loves the pool & swim time! Nita is so wonderful with the dogs. What a great opportunity & fun way to get some exercise!
Carolyn S
Excellent - Highly recommend Nita did an awesome job giving my 12 year old Golden Retriever, Lucy a full body massage. Lucy was really comfortable with Nita and was ready to run afterward. Can't wait to go back!!
Nikki C
Bully Breed Friendly!!! I love it that Swim Dog is Bully Breed Friendly!! I brought my two rescue Pit Bulls for a swim. It was a great time for all of us! It was a great work out for my older dog who has some arthritis. She didn't limp at all the next day. And for my younger dog, who is still learning new things every day, this was a huge confidence boos for him.....plus he burned a TON of energy. Nita Woulf was patient, gentle, and kind to my dogs. And she was quick to smile and laugh when my dogs did something silly, which made me feel at ease too. We can't wait to go back!!
Lori K
Swimming Charlie and Norman had a blast learning to swim!! Charlie didn't want to stop and Norman needs alittle more help :). Thank You!!!
Dana B
Mysti Therapy Swim I am so thrilled that this facility is available in the Fox Valley. My soon to be 13 y.o. golden has spinal problems and is very weak in the back end. It is almost impossible to walk her for more than a few minutes. We have been to two therapy swim sessions now and she loves them. It is a wonderful stress free way to keep her back legs with some muscle tone to help her keep moving on her own! Nita is wonderful with her in the pool. Thank you Nita for bringing this to our area!!!
Tim S
Husker's First Visit Husker, our 2 year old yellow lab, came home from his first "workout" at Swim Dog tired and happy. Nita's orientation with him helped him become comfortable and confident with entering and exiting the pool as he retrieved and played. Looking forward to getting him back there again soon for another fun time doing what he loves to do . . . retrieving and swimming!
LuAnn S
Excellent experience We have been taking our dog to Swim Dog Wellness Center for therapy following a meniscus cruciate ligament repair. Water therapy was exactly what the vet recommended and Nita is an expert getting dogs acclimated to the water. The water therapy has been incredibly beneficial for recovery. Swim Dog is also a great place for dogs to expend some energy! We highly recommend Swim Dog!
Holly C
Great Experience Holly C. says: Ember had a great time at Swim Dog Wellness Center. Nita worked very well with her, shy was a bit shy at first but really liked the water. Great exercise and it really tired her out, I am very happy! We will definitely be back for more swimming and I will definitely recommend Swim Dog to everyone!
Gerty H
Nita and Sophia Gerty H. says: Swim dog is going to be a fun place for Sophia. Nita is getting Sophia use to the water and the ramp so the dog can feel at ease for getting in an out of the pool. First time we went Sophia was very frightened but Nita made her feel good about the water and using the ramp. We went a second time and Sophia seemed very relax to using the ramp. The water is warm and clean. We will be going as often as we can. I will also bring my other dog Annie who has arthritis for therapeutic treatment.

Tennis ball and water, nothing better Britt S. says: Very well thought out pool and system, Nita taught Joey how to get out using the ramp, and it was ON. This will help burn off energy when the weather outside doesn't allow our normal routine! My dog caught on to how to use the ramp in one try, and had an absolute blast the whole time she was there. Already recommended to friends!!!!!

Great Time Karie W. says: Nita was very patient and helpful, as It was Zoomer's first time in deep water. It was a lot of fun, and we'll definitely be back! Wishing we had a swimming buddy for him, though! The pool and area is dog and people friendly, clean, and accommodating. Great place!
