Meet Our Team

Dominique

Dominique

Owner

I am Dominique, originally from France. I have been living in the Washington, D.C. area for over thirty years.

I am a lab addict, and have been living with those amazing dogs for a very long time. I grew up with them, learned with them and from them, and still do.

From my heart dog, Zeus, who was crippled with arthritis to Sophie’s rehab after TPLO surgery, to Lola’s, Jackson’s, Maia‘s and now Zeke’s love for retrieving, swimming was the answer. Yes, rivers and lakes are fun, but after a bad encounter between Lola and a beaver, we decided to move to safer grounds.

I built the pools that my dogs were dreaming of, and there is nothing more rewarding than seeing dogs having fun and our senior swimmers becoming young pups again!

Greeter

A poster of Maia will now greet you instead of her.
Maia crossed the Rainbow Bridge on December 18, 2017.
There will never be another greeter. It was her place.
Every morning, she was waiting by my front door at home by 7:30am just to be sure that I was not going to forget her.

Kelly has been at the pools since the opening in 2016. She became the proud Mama of Duck, a four-legged kid.
We decided that after swimming so many dogs, it was time for Kelly to dry off..... And yes, there will be exceptions!
