Alpha Dog Club - Richmond, VA


Dog Video To Make You Smile

We’re saving rescue and shelters dogs…
one lap at a time.
Come to Alpha Dog Club to see reactive, shy, emotionally troubled, and recovering from injury dogs transform and blossom with swimming. These are the dogs selected as “most in need” by rescue groups and shelters. Come watch, and root them on.
