Henderson, Nev. – Doggie Paddle & Play Day, the City of Henderson’s annual canine swim event, has expanded to two days this year to accommodate more pets and their owners. The event takes place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23 and Sunday, Sept. 24, at Black Mountain Aquatic Complex, 599 Greenway Rd. Registration is $10 per dog per date in advance, or $15 at the door. Human friends attend for free but may not enter the water. Register in advance at cityofhenderson.com (activity code 436263) or at any recreation center or indoor pool. Each registered participant will receive a commemorative Frisbee while supplies last.

Dogs are assigned swim times based on weight. Dogs weighing 40 lbs. or less swim 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on Saturday and 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday; dogs weighing 41 to 89 lbs. swim 9:45 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. both days; and dogs weighing 90 lbs. and over swim 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on Sunday.
