On September 7th the Goodman Pool will be closed to human swimmers and open exclusively to canines. This can only mean one thing: the Third Annual Capital K9’s Labor Day Dog Paddle! The unique and fun event has returned again this year to benefit the Madison Police Department’s K9 Unit and give dogs and their owners a chance to enjoy the end of summer together.

“It's hard to tell who has more fun at the Dog Paddle -- the people watching or their canine companions who are participating,” says Dan McIlroy, President of Capital K9s. “We had such an amazing turn-out last year that we are expecting to see hundreds of people coming to unleash their best friends to play in the Goodman Pool.” The event features prizes, contests and of course dogs doing what they do best: having fun! More competitive canines can show off their skills in a battle for the farthest jump, fastest retrieval or participate in the wet dog parade. The Dog Paddle will also feature vendors of all kinds, from animal photographers to treats and nail trims.
All proceeds from the Dog Paddle go to benefit Capital K9’s. Formed in 2004, Capital K9s is a 5013C non-profit organization that supports the Madison Police Department K9 Unit through fundraising efforts. To learn more about Capital K9s, how K9 Units help the Madison Police Department, and specifics about this event, please visit the newly redesigned website.

Important Note: Please be sure to check out the participation rules and zero-aggression policy information for the safety of all participants.
