Take your pup for a swim at local pools

SPOKANE, Wash. - Area pools are starting to close for the season, which means its time for doggy dips! Pools in Spokane and Spokane Valley are open to your fur-friends over the next week. 

The first event is on Sunday at Valley Mission Pool. The last day for human swim is Saturday, then the pool goes to the pups. Dogs 65 pounds or under can swim from 1 to 1:45 p.m. and the pool opens for larger pups from 2 to 2:45 p.m. It costs $5 for each canine to participate and the limit is two dogs per owner. Dogs must be over six months or older, spayed or neutered, and must have current vaccination records. Find more info here.
