A year-round, safe, comfortable, and private area for your dog to exercise and have fun.

  • Relieves pressure on the joints and allows muscles to relax

Our 13 year old Labrador has been swimming with Kate for over a year now. It is a great alternative to her daily walk, and great fun for her. Best of all, the benefit to her ailing joints is visibly noticeable. Every dog should be so lucky!

Ginny & Joe

Both of our boys learned to swim at Water Bark Wellness.  Kate’s individual approach and attention to each dog’s needs and challenges ensures that each dog feels safe as they learn. We would highly recommend Water Bark Wellness to any dog owner

Shelly & Libby

As you may remember, I was afraid of the water and did not know how to swim.  Thanks to your patient instruction,  I can now swim with confidence and eagerness in Lake Megunticook.   Looking forward to more sessions this winter!
