New swimming pool just for dogs opens in Great Holland – Essex Live

This would be the independent dog park provider’s third expansion since launching in 2021
A new swimming pool for dogs has opened in Essex. Run Wild Dog Park recently launched the exclusive dog splash pool, based on Pork Lane, Great Holland.
The splash pool allows dogs of all breeds and ages to learn to swim and enjoy the water. All sessions are 30 minutes long with a staff member on hand and water toys to help the dog enjoy its time in the water.
Sessions are exclusively hired for the attendees so they don’t have to share with unknown or other attendee dogs. Lifejackets are also provided but owners are not allowed to get into the pool with their dogs.
Co-owners Caroline McCullagh and Ryan Law are expanding with the swimming pool after opening three dedicated dog parks. They launched their initial site in Twitty Fee in Danbury before opening its second and third sites based in Clacton by The Meadows and Wood View in 2022.

The dog attraction is expected to be seasonal and open till mid-autumn before closing for the summer. Co-founder Caroline McCullagh said: “It is a means of dogs getting exercise if they are a bit older and they’re struggling but also a secure place for people to teach their puppies to swim or their dog to enjoy the water.
“We are also finding out as well from speaking to some customers that people are wary of particular dog breeds and there are not happy for those dogs to go to a lot of places. So the secure dog fields and now the pool is a place where owners can actually bring their dogs to have fun because they are nice dogs but just because of their breed people are afraid or wary of them.”
Sessions are £33 for one dog and £10 per additional dog up to a maximum of 4 dogs. Click here for more information.
