My only advice is to CALL and schedule. Don't book online. Otherwise, I cannot recommend this place enough! I would drive across the state, the country, the globe to have my dog swim here! Beth had a variety of treats for dogs to use during their swimming lessons. My boy has severe food allergies and can only have salmon/fish cookies, so this made a great first impression! My dog isn't nervous, but he can be frightful in new situations. Beth saw his heart right away. She met him where he was, pushed when he could handle it, and let him breathe when he needed it. Her extensive training in dog behavior did not go unnoticed! She was so in-tune with his body language and cues. She knows what she's doing, 110%. After our session, my pup was confident, happy, and proud of himself for his hard and brave work overcoming his nerves around the pool. He was practically swimming laps around me at the end! We can't wait to come back.

Always a great place!!! Never a bad experience. My dog is learning how to swim with confidence and it is also fun exercise for her as well. The whole training session is positive. Highly recommend this place.

My labrador Koal was just a baby when I first started with dog dive. I really wanted him to learn to swim well and safely in all situations. His progress was wonderful! Once he met and got used to Beth, Mary and Daryll he was a whole different dog!!!! Today he still goes to Dog Dive and he runs in and up the ramp impatiently ready to swim. Im an LVT in Michigan and have referred several of my patients with injuries or those in need of swimming therapy to them. Excellent bunch of people and an excellent and much needed small business in the area. I would recommend them to anyone I know with the interest in having their dog swim or to those who have dogs recovering from an injury or in need of physical therapy. They do their research and require the veterinary paperwork which is what makes them so reputable!

This business operates like an extension of our family, we just love this place so much! Our pup gets so thrilled when we pull up at the dive! The love they have for animals just shines through in all that they do... give this place a try. Your dog will LOVE it.

I've been sending my 8 month old German Shepherd to daycare at Dog Dive for a couple months now. Ronan loves to hang out with his pals in the front office and greet everyone that comes in. I feel so comfortable leaving my fur child with them when I'm at work and can't be with him. He always comes home exhausted from a full day and really I couldn't ask for anything more. We love Dog Dive!

Take your dog here !!! They are such amazing people that work with the animals. The water is warm and clean. It's such great exercise for the dog and good bonding for you and your pet. My dog knows the term "good swim" and he gets so excited !

The staff of Dog Dive is beyond wonderful! I am a foster with Great Lakes Boxer Rescue and today was my foster's first therapy session. Diamond???? is unable to walk, they more than made her feel safe in the water. Thank you for your patience and kindness you showed her.

The Dog Dive is an awesome experience. Our girl Maya is a 14year old lab mix. She was starting to lose her mobility but thanks to Beth she has been getting better every day. Her behavior and her mobility have been amazing. She has even climbed steps which she hasn’t been able to do on her own for a year and a half. Highly recommend this for therapy for your fur babies ☺️????

This place provides excellent care for my Mattie, who is a little behind in training. They work with her constantly. She loves it there and I'm very happy with their care.

Following my young malamute's surgery on both elbows for dysplasia, aqua therapy was recommended. I spent hours online only to learn that Kalamazoo had no such services available--the closest program being in Grand Rapids. Thank goodness, along came the Dog Dive! Beth took a fraidy-cat mal and by working very gently and POSITIVELY with him, turned him into a boy who LOVES his swim time! Beth and Darryl are both wonderfully kind owners and I'm so glad they've stepped in to meet a major need in the area.

My dog spent the day in Grey Paws day care and had a great time. He is 2 so very active. When I picked him up, they had him in the office and he seemed right at home. I'll definitely use their services again!

Amazing! Beth is so knowledgeable, enthusiastic and truly loves dogs. My dog was enjoying a free swim for the first time and she was terrific to work with. Her love for dogs and what she does is so contagious, you leave feeling as great as your well exercised pup! Can't wait to bring my other dog, this place is awesome!!!
