To all the dog lovers out there...Is there area in Tega Cay or Lake Wylie that allows dogs to swim & frolik in the lake? I have two goldens (very spoiled) who love the water & will miss our pool terribly when we move.

I see Goldens in the lake at Windjammer Park all the time - they seem to be great water dogs! I don't know if they're technically allowed, but they're sure there. We're usually there at dusk, so maybe it's "cheaters". Our Callaway has been swimming there, but he is a fox hound mutt so it takes convincing.

I've also seen a good number of people playing fetch in the water at the Fort Mill access area on the Catawba River, right on the downside of the dam.

We went to the dog park out in Tega Cay today and another dog owner there suggested we let our goldens go swimming on the "beach" by the overlook park. We decided since they lived nearer the park than do we, and the fact she says she goes all the time with her lab, we would let our babies go swimming. Short version is both of our goldens got their pads on their little paws cut on oyster shells just off the shore. DO NOT let your pets in at that location. It looks great but it apparently is not.

Is the overlook park that lakefront area right by the dog park? Or is that whole area considered overlook park, with the soccer fields and all?

There are a couple of places that dogs can be seen enjoying the Lake Wylie water (within Tega Cay)...Windjammer Park being one of them...but technically dogs are to be on leashes at all times within the city limits (dog park excluded).

I will also give you a heads up though...that within Tega Cay there are certain areas (signs are posted) were you are required to have a Tega Cay parking permit (as a TC resident)...one of these such places is Windjammer Park. Although it can be rather hit and miss...if you don't have a resident permit sticker on your vechicle you do run the risk of receiving a ticket.

What your dogs paws were cut on...are Asiatic Clams. Even with the lake is at full capicity you will find some along the shores of the lake...but now that we are in a drought situation (the lake is anywhere between 5 to 6 feet below norm)...all those little clams are finding themselves outside of the water and being baked to death from the heat (besides the smell is not that pleasant either).

By chance where you actually at Look Out Park or by the Beach Club?

Central Bark

We were just down from Central Bark. What was odd is that both dogs swam in the same area, however, only one got his pad cut. The odd part is that it was all 4 pads. Poor little unlucky fellow. He is now wearing little fleece lined boots outside so the hot concrete on our drive way doesn't hurt his feet.

Thanks so much for all your suggestions. When we move we will most likely not buy a home with a pool..at this point our dogs enjoy it more than we do! We spoil them silly..they swim daily and will be very unhappy when we close up the pool next week. So finding a place that has access for swimming is important to us..By the way, Tega Cay's amenities are awesome!! It keeps getting bumped up to the top of our list.

Pharm--how awful to have all four paws cut up...I hope you can keep the booties on..my goldens think anything with fleece is a toy, and would seek & destroy! Seriously, I hope they heal up quickly!

So sorry your dog got hurt (but I am sure he looks Smashing in those fleece lined boots)!
