We offer pool rentals, open dock, and private dock diving classes. Available only at No Leash Needed West Country location.

Open Dock

Open Dock allows dogs to have fun, practice, or just swim. Due to popularity, we have split Open Dock into Beginner and Advanced. The Beginner sessions are reserved for dogs still learning to jump off the dock with confidence. People that also want their dogs to swim are welcome during this time. Each participant will get 5 minutes on the dock and then rotate in line. A staff member will be on-site to assist.

Advanced dogs must be able to jump off the dock or ramp willingly and know how to exit the pool properly. Advanced sessions will not have staff supervision. Clients will be expected to conduct themselves in a safe and proper manner. Each spot is limited to one dog and one handler.

Client Reviews & Testimonials

No Leash Needed has earned the Angie's List Super Service Award 5 years in a row and has an A+ rating with the BBB, but more importantly, we have plenty of testimonials from real clients. Find out why we are St. Louis' favorite dog kennel.

We would recommend No Leash Needed to anyone who has a dog. Their training completely transformed our dog. The trainers are very effective at teaching both the dog and the owner, and the staff clearly cares about both. The day camp service was great for getting our dog some playtime and exercise. We can't say enough about how helpful the staff at No Leashed Needed has been.

Zach & Sara

Treadmill exercise is a great way for an anxious or “busy” dog to release tension and get fit. No Leash Needed took time and care with Matsuko – an adolescent rescue – to get him comfortable with the machine. Now he comes 4 times per week for his specialized play and exercise program. He’s a happier and calmer boy!

I have been taking my dog to No Leash for about a year now and I really like them. They are always friendly and take good care of the dogs. I've used several dog care facilities over the years and they are my favorite in the St. Louis area.
