Is Our Pond Safe?


We have our pond tested and maintained by a professional pond company, Solitude Lake Management. They make sure that our water is safe for dogs to swim in.

They test for bacteria and fungi and make sure our parameters are optimal!

We are happy to send you the testing results if you're ever curious, just shoot us an email!

*They are treating for the parameters out of range but this does not mean the water is unsafe. They have deemed the water safe for swimming for humans and dogs
