ABOUT THE EVENT:
Nashville Paw magazine and the Sumner County YMCA are excited to announce our 7th annual Canine Summer Splash, Middle Tennessee’s popular doggie pool party! Bring out your pooch pals to run, play, splash and swim in the fully-fenced, zero-entry outdoor pool and spray fountains. It’s like a day at the dog park—but with lots of water! This unique event welcomes over 300 dogs 600 humans each year! This year, we have moved around our swim sessions and event times, so please take note: large dogs (over 30 pounds) swim 11:00 - 12:30; all dogs are invited to swim 1:00 – 2:30; and little dogs (under 30 pounds) swim 3:00 – 4:30. We moved little dogs toward the end so that the pool would be warmer, as they tend to get cold faster! Guests will also enjoy a variety of local vendors and food. Admission is $15 cash per dog. A portion of event proceeds benefits the Sumner County YMCA’s “Learn to Swim” program. Please visit event website for admission requirements, event rules and rain policy. 615-474-5710, caninesummersplash.com

NOTE: All swim sessions are AS SPACE ALLOWS. As this event grows, it is possible that our pool space will fill and that we will have to cut off ticket sales. Please arrive early to ensure you get in. Please understand that per safety regulations at the YMCA they reserve the right to cut off ticket sales at any point in order to ensure safety on the pool deck. If you are refused a ticket for this reason, we apologize but can only accommodate a certain number of people and dogs at any given time.
Admission is $15 CASH per dog, per session. You MUST show either a current rabies tag or rabies certificate for EACH dog in order to participate, unless your dog has a rabies exemption certificate from your veterinarian. In that case, please bring the rabies exemption certificate as your proof. Dogs will not be admitted without the required documentation. (While a current rabies TAG or CERTIFICATE is preferred, if you have lost those, a printout from your vet clinic showing the date your dog was vaccinated for rabies will suffice.)
