Dog Swim Days in Indianapolis 2023

As kids return to school and the days get shorter, Indianapolis pools will begin to close. Before draining the pool for the winter, many local pools have a fun way of saying goodbye to summer: Dog Swim Days!

We’ve compiled a list of dog swim day events near Indianapolis where your pup can take a dip and join in on the last dog days of summer.

*Please note that many of these require proof of immunizations, so be sure to have those just in case!
