Dog Swim 2018 Saltdean Lido

For their second year running Saltdean Lido held their dog swim event at Saltdeaan Lido in Brighton, it is in a beautiful coastal location opposite views of white cliffs. Teresa Keohane from The Dogvine invited me along to photograph the event, we have photographed several events together I had a brilliant day watching the dogs having fun, their owners ended up enjoying it as much as the dogs.

I enjoy photographing these events as it gives me the opportunity to meet so many dogs including ones who have been rescued. It is always lovely to hear their stories and see how well they are doing despite their start in life. Some of the beautiful dogs I met on the day were Holly and Luna that were rescued from Cyprus and Spain, they have both ended up having such a gentle nature despite everything.

If you are looking for a fun event to attend with your dog I can recommend the dog swim. It is recommended you pre book tickets as they can sell out quickly. Each session is between 90 minutes and 2 hours. You can buy a dogs ticket for £7.50 or spectators for £3.50. The event also raises funds for a crowdfunding project to restore the building.

If you are travelling by public transport it is easy to get to by train and only an hour from Victoria station in London. From Brighton station you take the number 12 bus to Saltdean which is 25 minutes away.
