Summer is coming to a close, and pooches everywhere are feeling a little resentful. Sure they've been on lots of walks and car rides with the windows down, but it's time that our pooches had a poolside bash of their own while we still have some sun. Dog swimming in Mississauga is happening on Sept. 7 with a free pool party and pups everywhere are invited!

Dogs can relax in the sun and splash around at this exclusive just-for-pooches event. You'll be thanked with lots of tail wags and sloppy kisses for taking your furry friend to this pupper-filled party!

Hosted by the City of Mississauga, the party will take place September 7 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Credit Valley Outdoor Pool. Dogs from all around are invited to take a dip in the refreshing pool and catch up on all the latest canine gossip.  Toronto is hosting a similar event this weekend at ten of the city's public outdoor pools.

There is no admission fee, but you can donate online to the Mississauga Animal Services. You can also bring any donation items needed by the shelter to the event. 

Remember, this is a party for pups only! You must be bringing a dog in order to enter the event. Also, dog owners are not permitted in the pool with the pooches. Our furry friends need all the swimming space they can get, after all! Only two dogs per person are permitted. 

Of course, there are a few rules to ensure everyone has a fun, safe time! You can check out the regulations here. You can register through the website or at the event. Treat your furry friend to an awesome poolside party!
