Our dock was designed after visiting facilities all over the country. There is one entry ramp that is a gradual incline. One dog on the system at a time. Dogs exit to the opposite side and is visable to the incoming handler so there is no delay in bringing in the next team.
Our dock is 9' x 40' sitting 2 ft above the water surface. It is covered in Professional Quality athletic turf that is not slippery when wet. The dock is securely fence to 4 feet with partitions extending over the pool to prevent dogs from jumping toward the ramp. Our ramp is a solid , textured aluminum with a gradual incline ,safe for people and older dogs and puppies but enjoyed by all. The ramp has a stainless steel safety hand rail for additional safety.
We run 2 oversized pumps with cartridge filters to maintain great filtration of our 26,000 gallons. Our pool is vacuumed 2/3 times weekly. As an extra layer of safety we have installer a UV sanitizer to make extra sure that our water is a clean as it can be. We use UNIQUE* a non chemical, bio activated spray to clean up any accidents that occur on the turf and dock. Our property is treated with a non-toxic outdoor insect Control PCO CHOICE that is composed of Cedar oil manufactured by Cedarcide.com
