Aquapaws is the first Canine swimming pool in Australia to use the MagnaPool system, winner of numerous prizes on an international level for its qualities and innovation.
MagnaPool's magnesium enriched mineral water helps muscles relax. Magnesium aids in reducing inflammation in the muscles and relieves pain. It can assist in reducing stress and promoting muscle energy which is the perfect complement for show and racing dogs that frequent the pool. The magnesium mineral based water is also very gentle on eyes and sensitive skin.
Compared to traditional salt water pools or ones with a high concentration of chlorine, it offers a much healthier alternative. Magnesium is easily absorbed through the skin. This is known as transdermal magnesium therapy and has proven to be highly effective.

PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT
As swim times run strictly every 30 minutes, if you are late for your appointment you may not be able to make up your lost time if the next appointment is full. The pool can be very busy and your lateness will inconvenient other pool users. Thank you for your co operation in this matter.
Maximum of 4 dogs at one time in the pool unless of course, you have a play date with all of your doggy friends!
