Local dog owners are invited to the annual Dog Days of Summer event Monday, Aug. 15, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the College Hill Pool, 304 S. Circle Drive, sponsored by the Kansas Humane Society and the City of Wichita Park and Recreation Department.
The event allows dogs to experience wading, paddling, swimming and diving in a pool without chlorine. Admission is a $10 donation per dog (limit of two dogs per owner) with proceeds benefitting the Kansas Humane Society. This event also features a long jump contest, Frisbee catch competition and largest and smallest dog contest. Free dog treats will be given out by Bradley’s Bones.
For everyone’s safety, owners may wade only knee-deep with their dogs in the shallow end of the zero-depth entry pool. Children under the age of 18 are not allowed to handle dogs and may only go into the water at ankle depth. All dogs must be on a leash when not in the pool or participating in contests and must be current on all vaccinations.
The event had previously been scheduled for Aug. 8 but was changed to Aug. 15 to accommodate an extended swimming pool season by the City of Wichita Park and Recreation Department.
