It's quickly become a highlight of the year for Kapiti's best friends - a chance for Council-registered dogs to enjoy a pool swim in Waikanae, before the outdoor pool season ends.

Owners are already lining up to book a place for their pooch at the pool on Easter Monday 2 April – 2-3.30pm for small dogs, 3.45-5.30pm for medium and large dogs.

It's the second time the 'Dogs in togs' event has been offered to the Kāpiti community before the pool is emptied and cleaned for the winter months.

Register and find out more about the sessions, by calling the pool direct on 296 4789. You'll need your dog registration number and a few other details to book in. You won't need togs yourself, but you'll need to supervise your own dog. All for the cost of a gold coin donation to the SPCA.
