"Doggie Dip" events invite dogs to splash in pool
OMAHA, Neb. (FOX42KPTM) —
People aren't the only ones who need a day at the pool.
Now, dogs get one, too. Pet owners got a chance to watch their furry friends splash around at Lee Valley Pool Friday.
The city of Omaha does this every year to help raise money for the Nebraska Humane Society.
For many dog owners, it's one of the only chances they get to swim with their pet.
"It's kind of a novelty, and not only that is to have all their other dog friends, their four legged friends here so it's exciting,” said Tracy Stratman, recreation manager for the parks department|.
If you couldn't bring your dog to the pool Friday, you're in luck.
There is another Doggie Dip on Aug. 13 from 5:30 p.m.to 7:30 p-m. at Gallagher Pool.
It costs $5 per dog.
