Canine Dip and Dive opens new Suffolk site

Canine Dip and Dive, which operates dog-friendly swimming pools, has revealed that Pakenham Windmill in Suffolk is to host a pool for the first time.  

The business is moving from Suffolk Rural College in Otley to Pakenham Windmill for its new season, which runs from April till October. 

The company provides a 32ft outdoor swimming pool for dogs, including a floating ramp to make it easy for dogs to get in and out of the water, and a platform for them to dive in from. 

The Pakenham Windmill site is offering booking slots from 5 April, but there is already limited availability for the rest of the month as slots are booking up quickly. 

Andrew Brownlie, part owner, told Suffol News: “We’ve had access to fantastic facilities in Otley for the past few years, but the college needed the space for a future project. They offered us another site, but there was no power.”

He added: “Pakenham Windmill got in touch and it was a marriage made in heaven. 

“We’re excited, every year has been our best year – and at a time where people have less money, we wanted to spread some joy.” 

Canine Dip and Dive also has sites in Wymondham in Norfolk and Maldon in Essex.
