What is Dip For Dogs?

Dip For Dogs is IAPWA’s very own pop-up ice bath challenge making its way around the UK this summer. From gyms, to climbing centres, to yoga studios – Dip For Dogs is all about bringing local communities together to challenge each other to take the plunge, have a laugh, and do it all whilst raising funds for animals in need around the world.

How do I take part?

Participants make a £5 donation and attempt to sit in the ice bath for 60 seconds

What's next?

If successful, you will be entered into our grand prize draw in September

Tell me about the prizes?

The lucky winner will win a trip to climb Mount. Kilimanjaro with IAPWA or their gym membership FREE for a whole year!

How does it work?

Dip For Dogs is a very versatile event, lasting from an hour to a whole afternoon. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to have us at your venue, depending on your size, capacity and how busy you are.

We’ve come along to ice bath events, community parties, and sometimes simply rocked up after a big yoga class on a Thursday evening!

So far Dip For Dogs has been a huge success, bringing a touch of fun and competition wherever it goes. Not only has it got people talking about the importance of animal welfare, but every single penny raised helps IAPWA provide our lifeline to animals in need around the world.
