Rummy’s Beach Club is truly for all dogs. All dogs and clients are welcome. Many of Rummy’s clients come because they simply love the vibe and they don’t have to worry about interactions with other dogs. They can mentally and physically relax and enjoy the moment. For the dogs that may be uncomfortable or perhaps fearful of water, Rummy’s will give them the extra support needed to help that pup learn to trust and tips to help pet parents too. The pool has a beach entry and large shallow area where we can play with dogs who are scared of water and make it a positive experience until they are confident enough to swim. The pool is 50′ wide and 4′ deep, so plenty big enough to accommodate big pups like Mastiffs and Great Danes. If your pup is learning how to swim and doesn’t know how just yet, no problem! We use life jackets because this is the safest way to teach a pup to swim. Going at your dog’s pace to learn to swim is important for lifetime fun of dog swimming! Some dogs learn to swim immediately right off the bat and others require more time, space, and patience. Rummy’s offers creative teaching methods when it comes to dog swimming and dock jumping. IF you have had problems getting your pup to love the water, bring them to Rummy’s Beach Club.

One of the best perks of Rummy’s Beach Club is that it is a PRIVATE club. It is only you and your dog(s) on the property. Who doesn’t want that VIP experience? This makes it great for older dogs, dogs with health, or dogs with behavioral issues. Our client’s love all the private amenities offered at Rummy’s: dock diving, year-round swimming (the pool is covered by a dome in the winter and the water is warm), swimming lessons, fun photography and video, retail stores, and 1 acre of dog park sniff and seek fun too.

Your dog’s safety is important to us at Rummy’s Beach Club. We will make sure your experience with us is not only fun but also safe. Life jackets for pups that want or need them offer safety or to help build confidence for our private clients. We also feature a beach entry pool for those learning to swim or learning a new skill can help them safely enjoy their new activity with us.

We have thought of everything to make your time special with us. Rummy’s offers life jackets, toys, photography, and even goodies for purchase in our retail store. Rummy’s Beach Club has life jackets for your pup as they learn to swim. We also offer all the water toys to play with for dogs of all sizes. Toys that float, sink, and squeak! Of course, you are welcome to bring your pets water toys too. We even have pool sprinklers for those dogs that love them and can adjust the spray for your special pup that loves to play with pool sprinklers!

We want to be sure they have a wonderful experience. Rummy’s Beach Club also goes above and beyond to provide professional photos of your session with us. We post videos on our social media of your pups having fun if our customers want that too. Rummy’s can capture that moment of amusement and focus as your pup is going for that toy under water or about to jump into the water that first time and turn it into that wonderful keepsake. Rummy’s Beach Club takes amazing underwater photos for those pups that dive underwater to get toys. Capturing those fun and silly moments melt our hearts too! Many of our client’s rave about our special skill here creating priceless memories to look back on years from now. Around the holidays, we set up a photo booth, props, and costumes with themed photos for the major holidays to make your private session with us that much extra special.

In the winter, we protect our client’s and their pups from the cold weather and wind by adding a Winter Dome. This is a cover place over the pool area and a changing area. The pool is heated, the water is warm and ready to play in for you and your pups! Swimming with Rummy’s Beach Club is enjoyed year round. Swimming shouldn’t end in the summer. Just like us, your pup’s joints can get stiff if they are older with lack of movement. Movement is medicine to achy joints…your joints too! If you have a younger dog, they may be bored and would love an exciting time at Rummy’s. Show your fur babies how much you care by taking them to Rummy’s Beach Club. You won’t regret it.

Rummy’s Beach Club offers one acre of fun for your pups to run and be off leash from the moment they enter the gate! They have full access to the dog park to engage in a variety of activities that bring them joy and excitement. Some run freely, chasing after tennis balls or playing with their siblings. Some dogs eagerly explore our park’s terrain, sniffing and investigating new scents. Between sniffs and tail wags, it’s a place where dogs can exercise, socialize, and simply be themselves, creating a lively and joyful atmosphere for both dogs and their owners to enjoy.

Who is Dog Swimming for?

Anyone that has a dog they love and want to spoil and take them to their very own private oasis. Great for all adults at any age. Swimming with your dog is an activity that is suitable for adults of all ages, including seniors. It's a low-impact exercise that offers numerous benefits to individuals at various stages of life. For older adults, swimming can be particularly advantageous because it provides a full-body workout without putting excessive stress on joints and muscles. The buoyancy of the water helps reduce the risk of injury, making it an excellent choice for those looking to maintain their fitness and flexibility as they age. Moreover, swimming offers relaxation and stress relief, making it an enjoyable and therapeutic activity that can be embraced by people of all adult age groups.

Rummy's Beach Club Story

Founded on the bedrock of love for a rescued dog that had once endured abuse, coupled with an ardent desire to assist other dogs facing various health or behavioral challenges, Rummy's Beach Club is undoubtedly one of Houston's most distinctive treasures for both canines and their human companions. The driving force behind this unique establishment is none other than its owner, Lisa Goebel, who drew inspiration from the remarkable journey of a resilient Siberian Husky named Rummy. Rummy's early life was marred by neglect, leaving him blind, emaciated, and afflicted with mange, until the intervention of the compassionate Husky Haven rescue organization. Under their dedicated care, Rummy was nursed back to health, and it was during this time that Lisa assumed the role of his foster mother. Their transformative journey was eloquently chronicled in an essay submitted to the Purina Pro Plan Rally to Rescue contest, where they secured the coveted first place nationally.

This accolade thrust Rummy into the public eye, and together with Lisa, he embarked on numerous appearances, often engaging with children while Lisa shared invaluable insights on topics such as dog rescue, the importance of spaying and neutering animals, and the perils of puppy mills. In unity, Lisa and Rummy became formidable advocates for abused animals, utilizing education as a potent tool to bring about positive change. Lisa eventually adopted Rummy, and it was through this profound experience that the vision for Rummy's Beach Club was born – a place where dogs and their owners can forge meaningful connections, guided by a deep well of compassion and a shared commitment to improving the lives of dogs everywhere.
