As kids head back to school and temperatures begin to drop, pools all around Indianapolis will start closing.
Fortunately, many Indianapolis-area pools want to give your furry friends a chance to take a dip before draining the water for the season! We’ve rounded up a list of pools in and around Indy with dog swim events so your pooch can take a plunge and soak up 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!
**All events are subject to change. Please make sure to double-check event info as things often change in 2021! **
