As summer winds down, dog owners will get a one-day chance to let their pets take a dip in some of the District's public pools.

Just before the end of the outdoor swimming season, D.C.'s Department of Parks and Recreation is partnering with the Department of Health for the city's third annual Doggie Day Swim. It will be September 10 from noon to 4 p.m. at Upshur Pool and Banneker Pool. The event is free for D.C. residents and their dogs, although only the dogs will be allowed to get in the water.

City health officials will be on hand to monitor the health and safety of the pets and their owners. They'll also be giving out information on pet vaccinations, dog licenses and dog park licenses.
