Indoor Dog Swimming Pool

Barley’s Canine Recreation Center offers recreational swimming seven days a week! Bring your pooch in to swim at Salt Lake City’s first and only fresh water, heated, public, indoor dog swimming pool. We offer a 21′ x 41′ pool and to ensure high standards of hygiene, our water management system filters, heats and sanitizes the water through a circulation pump, a specially designed in-line electric heater and a high-rate sand filtration system.  Dogs will love the pool built just for them where they can play and take advantage of the therapeutic benefits of staying healthy and active.  Barleys Soft Opening 127

There is an initial first time visit orientation swim fee (up to two dogs, same household) for $25. Please call to schedule your orientation visit.  After the initial visit, there is a swim fee per dog or you can purchase a discounted swim package.  See details on the orientation and swim packages below.

Doggy life vests are available for those dogs just learning to swim or those needing a little support.  We also provide towels for your convenience.  If you have towels you would like to donate to the rec center, please bring ‘em by!

We ask our clients to complete an intake form and liability agreement before scheduling a first time swim orientation with a BCRC representative on their first visit.  Please call (801)467-6069 to schedule your first visit for orientation and make sure to bring a copy of your pooch’s vaccination certificate with you.  We require proof of current vaccinations for rabies, distemper, parvo and Bordetella.  Barley’s requires the vaccinations to be administered by a licensed veterinarian’s office.  Titers test results from within a year of the test date are acceptable for Distemper and Parvo. The forms may also be faxed to (801)467-2219.  No appointment necessary for unassisted open swim times after the first visit!

FYI – You will get wet! Adjust your wardrobe accordingly.  Like all public pools, we must have rules for safety and enjoyment for all.  Refer to our pool rules prior to visiting.
