Water Mine Dog DaysLake Fairfax Park’s Water Mine Family Swimmin’ Hole will have a dogs-only swimming event to end the 2016 season on Sunday.

Here is what you (and Fido) need to know about Dog Daze at The Water Mine:

The Water Mine will be open for dogs from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sept. 11. Suggested admission is $5 per dog. Proceeds will benefit the Fairfax County Animal Shelter.

Dogs will be able to splash and swim for the first time in the park’s Rattlesnake River.

Some rules:

All dog handlers must be 18 years or older and supervise dogs at all times – and no humans are allowed in the water.

All dogs must be current on vaccinations.

No female dogs in heat, puppies less than 3 months old, or aggressive, unruly dogs will be permitted.

Owners are responsible for cleaning up after their dogs (waste disposal bags will be provided).

The Water Mine Family Swimmin’ Hole at Lake Fairfax is located at 1400 Lake Fairfax Drive in Reston. For more information, visit The Water Mine’s website or call 703-471-5415.

    My dog was delighted to see that “unruly dogs will be permitted.” 😉

    He asks does humping everything in sight constitute unruly behavior and is it frowned upon by this enterprise? He is a gender/species neutral humper dawg.
