It promises to be a “pawsome” day at some public pools in Toronto, as the city will allow dogs to go for a dip before the facilities close for the year.

The City of Toronto is hosting a swim for dogs at 10 outdoor public pools Sunday afternoon.

Dog owners over the age of 18 may bring their furry friends for a dip at around 4 p.m.

Each person can bring up to two pooches, along with proof of vaccinations.

A spokeswoman for the city’s parks, forestry and recreation department says the event has been running for several years, but has grown in popularity and expanded city-wide.

Jane Arbour says this is also the first year that owners are encouraged to bring their dog’s favourite toy – along with one to donate to Toronto Animal Services.
