RUMMY'S - is an exclusive, PRIVATE facility. When you come to Rummy's, you and your dogs are the only ones using the facility. You will be accompanied by a staff member, but no other people or dogs are using the facility while you are here. Enjoy our one-acre PRIVATE dog park, PRIVATE custom-built dog pool, bathroom facilities and dressing rooms. Your dogs are going to have so much FUN!!!
FORMS FIRST - Complete a new client form for each dog you are bringing & email them to us BEFORE your appointment. The vet referral form is NOT mandatory, but preferred if your dog has had surgery or chemotherapy recently. The photography release form is mandatory if you want pictures or videos taken. Email Us and ask for our new client forms and we will email them to you right away.
PROOF OF VACCINATIONS - Along with the new client forms, please email us proof of current vaccinations or titers for Rabies (RV), Bordetella (BV), Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus (DHPP) and both strains of the Canine Influenza Virus (CIV) - H3N2 & H3N8. The CIV requirement was added in June 2017 because of a serious national & local outbreak of both strains of CIV and because of how contagious the disease is.
MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENT – After you have sent us your new client forms and proof of vaccinations, make your appointment. Just click on the “Schedule Now” button on the right of this page, create an account and follow the links. If you want to come on a weekend, Rummy’s is usually booked. Contact Us to be put on our weekend waiting list - we will get you an appointment. It may take several weeks, but we will get you in.
DOGS / PEOPLE – You can bring up to 3 dogs and 4 people age 16 or older for the prices quoted below. If you bring 3 dogs, they MUST know each other and play nicely. Do not bring dogs or children and leave them in the car. NO CHILDREN under age 16 allowed on the property for liability reasons. Age 16 & up with proof of age only.
CANCELLATIONS – We have a 24-hour cancellation policy - If you cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours’ notice, you are responsible for payment of that appointment. We hate to do this, we won’t stay in business long if we don’t.
WEATHER - If there is bad weather here and we can’t swim, we will contact you. If there is bad weather where you are and you don’t want to drive through it, call or text us and let us know. We do NOT swim if there is thunder & lightning. You are not charged for weather related cancellations.
PREPARATION - DO NOT FEED your dog 3 hours BEFORE swimming or you may see it again in the pool or in your car. No treats at Rummy’s please. Eating stimulates the GI tract and significantly increases chances of vomit, aspiration and / or poop in the pool. Protect your skin from dog claws & sun. Workout clothes or a bathing suit covered with a t-shirt works fine. Don’t forget towels for your dogs. In the winter, you may want to bring old comforters for your dogs to sleep in and stay warm after swimming. There is a heated dressing room next to the pool where you can change clothes. We have dog life jackets in every size, hundreds of dog toys & ear cleaner for dog ears after swimming to prevent ear infections (like swimmer’s ear for people).
PHOTOGRAPHY – If you sign our photography release form, this gives us permission to take pictures & videos of your dogs and share them on Facebook, you tube, use them in advertising, etc. We don’t email pictures or videos, we only share them on social media so you are able to share them with your friends & family. If you are interested in underwater photography, we are happy to try to get pictures of your dog underwater, but please know that good underwater photography requires a lot of things to be perfect – lighting, background, camera, a dog that knows how to dive underwater, etc.
DOCK JUMPING – Rummy’s has a beginner dock to help dogs learn how to jump in the pool April - November. Dogs MUST know how to swim before learning dock jumping. If your dog does not know how to swim, we are happy to teach your dog to swim. If your dog swims, but doesn't jump into a pool, Rummy's is a good beginner place for your dog to learn. If your dog already jumps into a pool, Rummy's is a great place to practice dock jumping.
PARKING - Rummy’s is PRIVATE! We have aggressive dogs, scared dogs, blind dogs, dogs with 3 legs, dogs with medical or surgical issues, as well as dogs with no issues at all but they don't want to be bothered by YOU during their time at Rummy's. Please park in the street near our driveway and stay in your car with your dogs so you don’t interrupt the dog swimming before you. When it is your appointment time, the large drive-in gates open and the dog swimming before you drives out. Then, you can drive in. Once inside of Rummy’s & the gates are closed, let your dogs out to RUN all around, pee and poop.
OUR NEIGHBORHOOD - Please don’t walk your dog in our neighborhood. There are stray dogs, dogs that live here buy are not fenced, as well as chickens, goats, horses, etc. Please don't bother our neighbors or their animals. We will take time to walk your dogs inside of Rummy's because that is where the good smells are. Smelling is so important for dogs and helps encourage them to pee and poop.
PAYMENT – We offer private hourly swims only. Our swim packages are called Season Passes and you have one year to use them. When you buy multiple hour season passes you can use the hours once a week, once a month – however you want to use them. You can pay with a credit card online below or you can pay with cash, check or credit card during your appointment. We accept all major credit cards. Here are our prices:

Please don't make appointments until you have 1) emailed us & asked for our new client forms 2) we review your completed forms & current vaccinations & tell you it is okay to schedule appointments. Like many boarding facilities, we requires vaccinations for both strains of the Canine Influenza Virus (CIV) – H3N2 & H3N8. There is a nationwide outbreak of both strains of CIV, both strains are VERY CONTAGIOUS - 80% of dogs exposed to the virus will get it. Once infected, dogs are contagious for 30 days. The flu vaccine requires a booster vaccine 2-4 weeks after the initial vaccine, then is good for one year. We require this vaccination because we have a lot of show dogs, agility dogs, flyball dogs, dock dogs, dogs that go to dog parks, etc. Dogs that hang out with a bunch of other dogs are more likely to get canine influenza virus. After you get the first shot of the series, you can come swimming. Just send us proof of the initial vaccine and then once you get the second shot, please send us proof of that as well.
