[ARCHIVED] Doggie Swim 2019 set for week after Labor Day

Doggie Swim 2019, a five-day event that provides swim time for canine companions before Haynesfield Pool closes for the season, has been scheduled for the week following Labor Day.

Sponsored by the Bristol, Tennessee Department of Parks and Recreation, the annual event is now in its 10th year and is a much-anticipated part of summer’s end, said Recreation Superintendent Mike Musick. Doggie Swim will be held Tuesday, Sept. 3, through Friday, Sept. 6, from 5 to 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, Sept. 7, from noon until 4 p.m. Admission is $3.00 per dog, with a limit of two dogs per person. Admission for people is free.

For the safety and security of all guests, participating dogs must be current on their vaccinations and must wear a current rabies tag and owner identification tag.  Unneutered male dogs, female dogs in heat, and puppies under six months of age are not allowed. Choke, prong (pinch), and spike collars are prohibited, but all dogs must wear a regular collar at all times. Each dog must be accompanied by a handler who is 16 years of age or older.

For a complete list of rules, please go to or contact Musick at (423) 989-5500, Ext. 2148 or
