Swimming for Fun and Therapy in our Heated Pool

Swimming is the perfect exercise for dogs young or old. It provides a non-weight bearing activity that avoids the stresses and strains of exercising on hard ground and will help strengthen muscles without risking further injury. Dogs suffering from a variety of conditions will benefit from a controlled swim session. Benefits include post-operative muscle regeneration and maintenance; weight management; exercising achy joints; relief of pain, swelling, arthritis, and stiffness. Fun swimming also has many benefits which include increasing flexibility, endurance, range of motion, circulation, building confidence, and having fun!

Contact our swim coach, Jean Brusavich from TranquilPet, at 310-370-9241 or visit her website at for more information or to make an appointment.

Tailwagger's Massage PupPawlates Class

Cost is $150 for a six week session. Call 310-994-4305 to sign up.

Monday and Thursday classes are held weekly, Tuesday classes are held every other week.

PupPawlates helps to increase core strengthening, help with an increased range of motion and flexibility, neuromuscular facilitation, sensory and perceptual stimulation, joint alignment, and balance control. Whether your dog is involved in agility, dock jumping, other dog sports, is a working dog, or a couch potato with healthier aspirations, core strength is a fundamental element used by your dog to control its body when jumping, turning, running and to help prevent injuries.

Requirements for the class include: you and your dog are healthy enough to participate in the class, the dog must be friendly and 1 year or older, dog's nails must be trimmed and filed, and you will need to bring small treats since this is a rewards based class. See for more information.

K9 Nosework

Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and a natural desire to hunt. This class focuses on teaching you how to encourage and develop your dog's natural scenting abilities by using their desire to hunt and their love of toys, food and exercise. It's a great class for your dog to have fun, build confidence, burn lots of mental and physical energy and for you to find out just how good your dog's nose is. Especially great for the dog that is uncomfortable around other dogs. Any age dog can participate.

Call or email Ramona for more information at 562-659-1803 or Please register online at

Meet the owners

Adele has always had a love and passion for dogs. She has been a dog owner since childhood and, during her many years in the aerospace industry working until the early hours of the morning, she always made time to play ball and give the care and attention her dog's so much needed. She met Julie Nystrom in 2004 who's daughter was in Girl Scouts with Adele's daughter. Julie's love for dogs, her involvement with dog adoptions and the local dog society was a pefect combination and bringing Julie on as Manager helped Adele make the big decision. In 2011 Adele decided to walk away from the corporate world to persue her dream of doing something she was very passionate about.
