A Suffolk couple are offering dog owners a way of keeping their pooches cool while they exercise this summer - in their swimming pool just for canines.
Andy and Jo Brownlie set up Dip and Dive in Wyverstone in August last year, but the pool is coming into its own this summer as the relentless heat batters Britain.
Mrs Brownlie said the business ‘took off from day one’.
“We had to close for the winter but reopened this May bank holiday so this will be our first full season,” she said.
“It has gone beyond anything we could have hoped for - the weather has been our friend.
“Dip and Dive is fundamentally for fun, a fun swimming pool for dogs.
“But we have dogs come for so many different reasons, some come for weight loss.
“It is great exercise for the dogs, especially in this hot weather. Twenty minutes in the pool is enough exercise for a dog for a whole day.”
