In November of 2016 Pet Lodge Pet Resort broke ground on a Splash Pad for dogs, and by April of 2017, the project was complete Just in time for summer we have another resort style activity for our guests to enjoy. There really is nothing like it in the Alpharetta or even Atlanta area. This 3000 square foot splash zone is designed specifically for dogs and has a variety of features to get the dogs moving and interested in the water.
The splash pad has six water features, three of these features are designed with multiple deck jets that shoot water into the air and then it pools the water so that it is two to four inches deep. Dogs love to bite at the jets as they spray and then cooling off by laying down in the shallow pool.
There is a tunnel of rings that mist inward as the dogs run though. Some dogs will chase tennis balls all of the way through the tunnel while others will weave in and out.
Our palm tree drips water as if it was raining!
Everyone’s favorite fixture seems to be the fire hydrant that mists from three different spouts. Except for where the water is pooling the ground is covered in a plush turf that is gentle on the dogs’ feet so that they can run as fast as they want. Lots of dogs love water but don’t jump right in the pool. These are the dogs that will chase the sprinkler or get into a kiddie pool. Maybe they wade in the water at the lake or the river but don’t actually swim. These dogs will love the splash pad. It is also a great way for them to cool down during these hot summer months
Pet parents can sign their pets up for splash time anytime they come to stay with us or even during doggy daycare. Dogs can go to the splash pad with other dogs to play or just one on one with a staff member. Guests can even rent it out privately so that they can go to the splash pad with their dog.
