The event allows local pups the opportunity to have fun in a safe, enclosed area while swimming off-leash with other dogs.

Dog handlers must be 16 years or older and are limited to two dogs each. All dogs must be at least 6 months old, legally licensed, vaccinated, and wearing a visible dog license. All exits will be gated and a veterinarian will be on site as a precaution.  

Children 9 years old and younger will need to remain in the snack area of the pool deck. No food will be allowed.  

The fee is $5.00 per dog. Registration is currently available online through WebTrac or by visiting the front desk at Ida Lee Recreation Center. Walk-up registration on the day of the event is welcome as well. For more information, please visit or call 703-777-1368.
