HENDERSON -- The City of Henderson is encouraging dogs and their owners to take part in a special Doggie Paddle and Play Day.

The event will be held Sept. 18 at Black Mountain Aquatic Complex. The dogs can use the pool as well as take part in several contests.

"With the opening of the new Bark Park at Heritage Park, interest in pet-friendly activities and places to go has never been stronger," said Angela Hester, Aquatics supervisor of City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department. 

There are a few rules for Doggie Paddle and Play Day. Dogs weighing 50 lbs or less will swim from 9 -10:15 a.m. while dogs weighing 50 lbs or more can take a dip from 10:45 a.m. until noon. 

Admission is $5 per dog and participants will need to get there 15 minutes early to check in.  Remember all dogs must be dog and people friendly, be properly licensed and owners must have proof of their pet's vaccinations. To learn more call 267-2980 or click here.
