A public pool in West End is set to go to the dogs this weekend.

Pooches can plunge into Francis Pool at 2435 N St. NW Saturday as part of the D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation’s eighth annual Doggie Day Swim, according to the agency. The festivities are scheduled to run from noon to 4 p.m.

Canines can splash and play for free in the pool, which closed to human swimmers Labor Day. But the pets must have dog licenses before they swim.

The pool area can accommodate up to 150 dogs at one time.
