Paws 'n' Tails Hydrotherapy Pool was founded in 2008 on 13.5 acres on the eastern edge of Black Forest, Colorado. We are approximately 20 miles from Colorado Springs, CO. Our indoor pool is heated to a comfortable ninety degrees which benefits most dogs with various types of skeletal and muscular issues.Mike Hasty
I grew up in Long Beach, California and lived there until I was 14. At age 14 I moved to England. I gained my high school education in England at Garth Hill School where I was a key member of both the basketball and soccer teams. Upon graduation I began working in the music industry. Working in music had been my dream for as long as I could remember. I spent 5 years at Universal Music UK, in the Licensing Department. My job was to get approval from the artists and their managers for their songs to be used on multi artist compilation albums. I enjoyed my time immensely, but the longer I spent in the corporate world, the more I realized that perhaps this was not my true calling.
While living in England my mom became very interested in canine hydrotherapy. After swimming her dogs in pools owned by other people she realized there were a lot of things that could be done differently, so she decided to get her accreditation in canine hydrotherapy and open her own pool! After spending a few years of my youth helping her out on days off or summer vacations, I had a great understanding of how beneficial canine hydrotherapy could be. When I decided to leave the music industry and move back to the States, I couldn't get the idea of having my own canine hydrotherapy pool out of my head. I bought a house with plenty of land and decided to go for it. Now I own and operate the first canine hydrotherapy pool in Black Forest and Southern Colorado, and only the second in Colorado.Our Facility:
Built in 2008, our large indoor facility allows us to fully take care of your companion. The pool is equipped with a ramp, so even the most timid dogs get the chance to be introduced to the joys of canine hydrotherapy. Once the swim session is complete we will rinse (shampoo upon request) and blow dry your dog. Either Mike or Coni is in the water with your companion at all times. All dogs wear a life jacket until we decide they are strong enough to swim without one. This is for the benefit of your companion.
Contact us today to set up a tour of our facility. We would love to meet you and your canine companion!
