OFFICIAL CLUB EVENT: Safe Intro to Swimming and a Swim Pawty with Dr. Lisa Boyer
ABOUT THE EVENT:
For our next Official Club Event for 2022, we are headed to Sewall’s Falls Recreation Area in Concord, NH with Dr. Lisa Boyer of Animal Health Consultants, our featured expert for August.
Join us for a 2.5-3 mile hike at the Sewall’s Falls Recreation Area along the Merrimack River. Part way through our walk, we will stop for our swimming pawty. Please bring a long lead so your dog can also enjoy swimming.
During this event, Dr. Lisa Boyer will discuss water and swimming safety for dogs. We will cover how to safely introduce your dog to water, hazards associated with fresh and salt-water swimming, and how to keep your dog safe with flotation devices. Different types of dog life jackets will also be available to see and learn about.
Participants will learn:
- How to safely introduce their dog to water;
- How to prevent many of the illnesses/injuries that can occur with swimming;
- About canine life jackets, which dogs should wear them and why.
The educational portion of this event will be delivered via a free conference line. Please bring your mobile phone and Bluetooth ear piece or other hands free listening device. The phone number to connect to will be distributed at the event.

After our hike and swim pawty, join us at McLaughlin’s Country Market for a picnic supper. Purchase a sub and munchies here and then drive to the playground (a very short distance down the street, on the left) to park and meet us on the grass. Bring a blanket or chair.
