A look at The Canine Aquatic Gym — located in Great Barrington Massachusetts
True Balance Animal Wellness’ Canine Aquatic Gym is located at 34 Rossetter St., in the heart of Great Barrington, MA, and is open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. The pool is 10′ X 18′, and heated to 89 degrees, with jets for resistance. Swims are one on one sessions, and bodywork will be performed in the water.
Sessions are roughly 45 minutes long, and are $60. I require a vet referral for all swims, and am continuing to offer home visits throughout the Tri-state area and beyond.
In addition, for people who have a super busy schedule, Liv Vansant of "Leave-em-with-Liv" pet care services is providing transportation to and from home or boarding kennel for an additional fee!

The pool is 10 feet wide, 18 feet long , and 4 1\2 feet deep. There are 1 MPH and 2 MPH jets that provide appropriate resistance for each dog. The water is heated to 89 degrees, and is kept sparkling clean and balanced with a UV sanitizer, a copper ionizer, a large cartridge filter, and weekly professional maintenance.
16 FOOT RAMP
The ramp and steps (next image) together allow easy, anxiety free entry into the pool. Once dogs get in, they head to the resting dock where we settle down together before starting their session. Bodywork and PROM is performed in the water between swim sets.
