Water Dog Spa (Tuesday – Saturday)

Hello, I’m Katie, the proud owner of Water Dog Spa. I’ve been doing hydrotherapy in and around Seattle since 2016, and it all started with my boy Rocco, the black dog pictured with me. Learning about canine hydrotherapy changed both of our lives. 

As Rocco aged, I saw his mobility decline practically overnight. Rocco loved to swim, so I searched to find a dog pool. Through weightless exercise, he gained strength and cardiovascular health; his quality of life returned. He no longer looked like a depressed, ailing dog. He was excited for walks again, his appetite came back, and the light returned to his eyes. Hydrotherapy gave me more quality time with my precious boy.  

I want to offer the same comfort and movement for you and your dogs. Through extensive training in therapeutic touch, kinesiology, anatomy and physiology combined with jetted warm water, I help your dogs rebuild muscle mass, increase stamina, reduce weight, and maintain a healthy lifestyle.  Just reach out I am happy to chat about what is going on with your dog and what we can do together.   


Splashing Hound (Mondays)

I’m Megan, the owner of Splashing Hound, a sister service to Water Dog Spa. Katie and I worked together previously as hydrotherapists, and it only made sense to reconnect when she opened her pool. 

I’ve been swimming with the area’s best and sweetest dogs for 5 years, and I’ve met the nicest families. I love seeing young pups who are shy about water overcome their stress and fears to make swimming a positive experience. But the older dogs have a special spot in my heart — especially when they progress from floating in the water to playing fetch with a puppy-like spark in their eyes. 

I offer swimming for weight loss/management, easing of aches, and everything in between depending on your pup’s willingness, stamina and spirit.

Morgana’s Mutts (Friday and Saturday)

Hello! I am Morgana, I run my hydrotherapy practice on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings. I am currently a veterinary assistant as well and I am applying to veterinary school next year. I have really connected to rehabilitation dealing with my own dogs, and clients who have had orthopedic surgeries. I’ve seen the power of hydrotherapy first hand and want to focus on rehabilitation after school as well. I especially love working with senior dogs, in my own dog it has supported his muscle growth, healthy movement and mobility. I love working with others to provide the same comfort.

About Water Dog Spa

Our Hydrotherapy Pool is 13 feet long, 8 feet wide and 4 feet deep with two jet settings to increase resistance.

Our water is maintained with Bromine to offer a safe,  sanitary and clean environment for the dogs. Bromine is easy on the skin and doesn’t have the strong bleach smell that is often associated with pools.

We keep the water between 85-92 degrees comfortable for the dog to work hard in and not overheat but also warm enough to increase circulation, comfort in the soft tissues and the joints and soothing to relax.
