Woodgreen Lesiure Centre in Banbury saw doggy paddle galore as it hosted its first annual dog and owner swim on Sunday (September 16).
In an end of summer occasion with a difference, owners were given the chance to book their dogs in for a dip.
Each dog had to have somebody aged 16+ to accompany it in the pool and lifeguards were on duty to keep an eye on the human swimmers. Each session was for 50 minutes with a range of measures put in place to ensure it was a fun occasion for all who took part.
Jemma Goater was among those to book in and she told the BG: “What a fantastic afternoon we all had at Woodgreen Leisure Centre.
“The sun shone as lots of dogs swam with the friends and owners. What a wonderful idea to allow dogs a day of fun. Candy, my German Shepherd absolutely loved it.”
