I am in the same quandary. We do take our dogs up to Cypress Bend park in New Braunfels, but it can get crowded, and it would be nice to have someplace in the city to go to. We have 2 Golden Retrievers, who are also, very well behaved and trained and like to be off leash.....and LOVE the water. I am actually doing some research about opening up a canine water park...open to the public for a small fee. If you Google it, there are several popping up around the country. We could really use it here because of our LONG, HOT summers. I am talking with the Humane Society and Parks and Recreation depts. along with some private investors. I'll keep you posted!!!

This is a few years late I realize but I'm looking for places for my fur babies to swim also. Below is from the website for the 2015 dates about the Doggie Dip:

Friendly dogs join us for a special swim for dogs at the Springfed Pool. Doggie Dip Day is a bi-annual event held at the Landa Park Aquatic Complex just for pooches! All dogs must have current rabies vaccinations and provide proof on the day of the event. Dogs must wear a collar they can swim in. Each dog may have up to two guests. Owners are required to clean up after their pets.

Fee: $5 per dog/ two owners $1 each additional person
Location: Landa Park Aquatic Complex, 350 Aquatic Circle
2015 Dates:
Sunday, April 26 Noon-4pm
Sunday, September 13 Noon-4pm

We used to go out to Horse creek out by Bandera and swim, and I think the other place was Upper Hondo Creek. I know out near Seguin there is a Farm to Market Road that crosses the Guadalupe and it doesn't look too deep, but can't think right now where. Working two jobs(second on every weekend plus during the week) I don't drive around the countryside like I used to because My late elderly father liked to go all over for rides.

However, w/ the lack of rain, the "Cib" is as dry as can be. So we need to find a new watering hole. I'm not looking for lectures on leash laws ; like I said, my dog listens to us and never, ever runs off. He is truly obedient. So basically, I'm looking for somewhere where he can run around off-leash, swim, and maybe fetch a stick or two. Any ideas?

And just for fun, I attached a pic of him last summer at the "Cib."
If you're within city limits it must be on a leash no matter how fuzzy wuzzie it is and how adorable and how obedient and cute and perfect in every way. It's a law and it's not just for other people's well being but your dog's. Not that you care because obviously you think having your dog swimming is more important than being a law abiding citizen. And oh of course you can break any law you want because hey, you're *sure* nothing bad will happen.

That's so sad you have to be so arrogant and mean...especially to someone who posted this over 7 years ago. Having a bad day?
