Welcome to Aqua Pups, Charlotte, North Carolina’s exclusive indoor dog pool. As the Queen City’s only in-ground, veterinarian-owned indoor pool, you and your furry companions are invited to experience the fun and joy year-round. Each pup’s experience is tailored to enhance their health, happiness, socialization skills and well-being. 

Aqua Pups is an excellent addition to the diverse array of activities the city of Charlotte and surrounding areas, offers its dog-friendly community. 


Health and Wellness

Swimming is an excellent form of exercise for dogs. Swimming promotes cardiovascular health, muscle strength and joint flexibility. It’s a low-impact activity, ideal for dogs of all ages and sizes. In addition, swimming can also be beneficial for weight management and relieving arthritis discomfort.


Socialization plays a pivotal role in a dog’s life, shaping their behavior, temperament and overall well-being. Our Group Swim sessions aren’t just about splashing around; they are dynamic social gatherings where dogs interact, learn and grow. 

Dogs learn social skills, communication skills, how to share space and understand social cues from other dogs. 


For your pup’s safety, a 30-minute orientation with one of our experienced swim instructors is mandatory. Your pup will be fitted with a lifejacket for safety.

During orientation, your furry friend will receive guidance on using the pool ramp to get in and out of the pool. In addition, pups will also learn essential swimming techniques. It’s a necessary step, ensuring a safe and enjoyable swim experience. 

Prior to your pup’s first visit, you must fill out an intake form and agree to pool and swim rules. Once submitted, one of our swim instructors will be in contact to schedule your pup’s orientation.


Aqua Pups Charlotte offers a diverse range of swimming opportunities tailored to suit the needs of every furry visitor. Services include swim memberships, private swims, assisted swims, blow-outs and birthday parties.
