Doggie Dip Swim Party

Event date: 9/8/2018 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM Export event

Cool off with your beloved pet at the Fred M. Evans Pool during the annual Doggie Dip Swim Party on Saturday, September 8. This special day is for all well-mannered dogs and their handlers. In an effort to ensure safety for everyone, there are Doggie Dip rules:

  • All dogs must be on leash when not in the water
  • All owners and dogs must know how to swim
  • Dog handlers must be age 18+
  • No more than two (2) dogs per handler
  • Proof of rabies vaccination (tag) on display at all times
  • No dogs in heat permitted
  • Handlers must clean up after dog and provide their own waste bags. Temporary waste stations will be available on site
  • Limit of 25 dogs per time frame/weight classification

In addition, the swimming time varies depending on the weight of dogs:
1 to 2:30 p.m.: small dogs (up to 25 lbs.)
2:30 to 4 p.m.: medium dogs (26-50 lbs.)
4 to 5:30 p.m.: large dogs (51 + lbs.)

Handlers can pay the $5 per dog entry fee on-site and only cash will be accepted. All proceeds will benefit the Dog PAWs fundraising efforts to construct Salisbury’s first dog park. For more information, visit
