The Knoxville Parks and Recreation Department will offer the fifth annual “Doggie Dip” on Sunday, Sept. 11, from 1-6 p.m. at Inskip Pool, 4204 Bruhin Road.


It’s the end of the swimming pool season, and Inskip Pool will once again offer a dog-only swim party, sponsored by Powell Animal Hospital. Dog owners are encouraged to bring their furry friends out for a refreshing dip and afternoon of socializing.


“We’re happy to provide fun events that get people outdoors and enjoying a new kind of special event at the pool. This happens to be an event where the entire family is invited – especially the dogs,” said Joe Walsh, City Parks and Recreation Director.


The cost is $5 per dog, owner included, with a two-dog maximum for each owner. Family members and guests are encouraged to join the fun for $3 per person. Lifeguards will be on site during the Doggie Dip.


All dogs are required to have up-to-date vaccinations, leashes and tags for the event. Doggie Dip registration forms must be completed for each dog attending.
