Dogs + Water = Dog Swim FUN~!

Every year cities throughout Dallas Fort Worth invite dogs and their parents to come out to enjoy a fun day in the water. Dog swim events are one of the most fun events to attend as a dog photographer because there are so many adorable, candid moments of pure joy!

Each year beginning in August and running through September you can find numerous options for your pup to swim and play. I’ve been to many of the events over the years, so I thought it would be helpful to share a list of 2018 dog swim events.
