Is there anybody out there who doesn’t enjoy watching dogs swim…? Nope? Didn’t think so. 🐶

Dogs swimming in pools is one of those things that you can’t help but smile at. Make it happen for your residents when your pool is ready to close for the season. The day before or shortly before your pool’s closing day, host a pooch plunge at your community pool with this Daily Dose. Your residents will be over the moon and so will their pets. Don’t have a pool? No worries, we’ve got options!




  • Your community pool or a few portable pools

  • Bags of ice

  • Rubber (or water friendly) dog toys

  • Water buckets

  • Sprinklers

  • Water bowls

  • Beach towels

  • Dog treats

  • Mason jar

Check out our favs below.



Prior to the event:

  • Post the printed invitation around the community.

  • Don’t forget to post the digital version of your invitation - email it to your residents and post it on your social platforms.

The day before, or day of: 

  • Post the social squares to remind your residents of the event and invite them to tag you in their cute pet photos!

At the event:

  • You and your team members stand out by the pool area and greet your residents and their puppy pals with toys!

  • Have some bags of ice on hand to cool off the water every now and then.

  • Have stations set up with water bowls in case the pups get thirsty. 

  • Have towels stations where the pets can be dried off before heading back home.

  • Finally, make sure you have a station with a jar of treats where your furry friends can grab one  on their way out - after all, having fun is exhausting! 😅A day well spent, if we do say so ourselves!
