Aquatics Coordinator Susan Alston said that this is the third year the center has hosted the Dog Days event. This year’s event will include a complimentary tennis ball with the center’s logo on it. Last year, the dogs were given frisbees.

While the big slide is off limits for the dogs, Alston said the canines usually have fun with the smaller, three-foot slides and children’s splash pad.

Each day will be divided into sessions to separate big dogs from little dogs. Large dogs are 45 pounds and up while small dogs are 45 pounds and under. Each session can fit up to 40 dogs.

Proof of vaccinations is required for rabies, parvo-distemper and bordetella. Rabies tags are not accepted as proof of vaccination. Vaccinations can be emailed to CAC2@cityofcumming.net.

“We do require people to send in their [dog’s] vaccinations,” Alston said. “…you can bring that the day of but we do recommend sending it in prior just so that the check-in is quicker.”
