Who let the dogs out... and into the swimming pool? L.A. County does, as part of their third annual "Pooches in the Pool" event.
Come Monday, September 2, 2019, doggos will get the opportunity to swim (doggy paddle?) in select Los Angeles-area public pools. Little dogs can swim from 5 to 6 p.m., and big ones from 6 to 7 p.m. at these eight participating locations:
City Terrace Park - 1126 N. Hazard Ave., City Terrace
Don Knabe Park - 19700 Bloomfield Ave., Cerritos
El Cariso Pool - 13100 Hubbard St., Sylmar
Knollwood County Club - 12040 Balboa Blvd., Granada Hills
Lane Pool - 5520 W. Ave., L8, Quartz Hill
Loma Alta Park - 3330 Lincoln Ave., Altadena
Martin Pool - 35548 N. 92nd St. E., Littlerock
Victoria Park - 419 E. M.L.K. Jr., Carson
But wait, you have to fill out a form and there are rules.
Before their pooch can jump in, dog owners will have to present current licensing and vaccination documents, and fill out a form.
There are a few rules, like there must be one handler for every two dogs and they can only be off-leash on the pool deck. Click here for a full list.
This is the final event before the pools are closed and cleaned for the season. What a terrific idea!

There was already enough concern about the healthy state of our drinking water before COVID-19.

Contaminants like lead, chromium, arsenic, copper, mercury, […]
