The kind of company I want to do business with!
Tim Lamb, the service manager, is as knowledgeable as they come. A phone consultation with him (at no charge) solved my problems. I had a cloudy pool and he suggested two products, that I bought on Amazon, that cleared the pool in 24 hours. If I were in his normal service area, I'd gladly pay his crew to maintain my pool for my family's comfort and safety.

Honest, trustworthy and simply the best!!
My only regret is that I have not shared this information with more people sooner; 5 years and counting!!
If you want someone to trust, be honest, complete quality work at a fair price......Jeff and his team should be the one to call.
He will be the first one to teach and save you money as opposed to charge you for service.
Jeff is the kind of guy everyone wants as a neighbor or a friend!!!

My pool has been well tended for the last 6 years by DDS
I have nothing but good things to say about Dog Days of Summer. Jeff, the owner, is always responsive, even when I have a pool-related crisis on weekends. The staff is always courteous and the prices are reasonable. Highly recommend them for all your pool needs.

Professional and courteous
I am very pleased with the work that Dog Days of Summer did. I found them by doing in internet search and am very happy that I did. I needed a new pool cover and someone to close my pool. They responded to my email quickly, came out on time for their appointment, and kept me informed as to when the new cover would be coming in and when it was scheduled. On the day they had scheduled to close the pool and install the new cover, the men who came were on time, professional and did a fantastic job. (They even did a great job dealing with my unruly dog.) I find their prices to be competitive, and their service to be impeccable.

Consistently Exceeds Expectations
I've been using Dog Days since they've opened and they never disappoint.
They are reliable and trustworthy.
I've used them for closings, installations, trouble shooting and vacation services.
They take the time to know my pool and my preferences. They're careful with my dogs and even play frisbee with them!
During the summer of 2016 I had a tough time with algae and chlorine demand and Jeff spent a lot of time working with me to diagnose, treat and ultimately fix the problems - all over the phone!
I highly recommend Dog Days.
- Howard .
Excellent service, highly recommend
Fast, professional, and very helpful. The employees always take the time to answer all of my questions. They arrive on the correct day and time. Communication is excellent and email responses are very timely. We would highly recommend Dog Days to other pool owners.

Best pool company ever!
I've been using Dog Days of Summer for years and I have yet to be disappointed. Customer service is top notch! They do a wonderful job no matter how big or small. I wouldn't trust my pool to anyone else.
- Ellen .
very responsive to customer concerns andneeds
Dog Days of Summer pool service has been a pleasure to work with these past few months. I am a novice pool owner, therefore lack the experience of pool ownership. Jeff always takes the time to provide detailed answers to my questions. On a few occasions when uncertainty existed on my part ,Jeff sent out a team of professionals to check out any potential problems. Sometimes issues were present and required remediation, other times not. Regardless, my concerns were addressed.
I would highly recommend Dog Days of Summer pool service to anyone seeking the highest quality service.
Thank you! Pam

Quality, professional service
We've been using this service for several years and it has remained outstanding. On time, professional and they take all of the headaches out of maintaining a pool and being able to enjoy it. Responsive to questions and concerns and flexible with changing dates for different services.
- Mark .
Great service from experienced professionals
Dog Days has been our open/close pool service since we moved into the house 13 years ago, They have also maintained our pool house systems (pipes, pumps and heater) during that time. We have always had excellent service by experienced and knowledgeable professionals who are friendly, willing to answer any question and are respectful of our property.
Scheduling a convenient time is always easy. The team is prompt and efficient and carry a wide array of parts to fix all but the most unusual issues and even then it is only a day or two to get the needed part installed. Their prices are competitive and, in my opinion, more than reasonable for the quality of service.

Dog days of summer pool service is awesome! No matter what the problem, they are just a phone call away. They have always been available for anything we have needed, right away. They just closed our pool and were professional and thorough.

Exceptional Pool Service
Dog Days is always reliable and I feel like they take care of my pool as if it was their own.

Always great to work with!
Thank you for making having a pool so easy!
- Natalie .
We have had a pool in our backyard for over 18 years and used several pool service companies but NONE compare or even come close Jeff and his Dog Days of Summer staff. Jeff is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and promptly responds when equipment breaks or we need a special service.
- Judi .
Dependable and Friendly and Laid Back
Dog Days was one of the few good recommendations we got when we moved to this area and a home with a pool. I had never had a pool before and figured we'd have them for the first year and then learn how to take care of it ourselves.
Life is busy with three kids - four years later they are still giving us bi-weekly service, opening and closing and when I need it giving us advice or as it was back in the day - running over that day for some emergency with the pump.
Jeff is friendly and honest as are all of his workers. We took their recommendation for a robot and our pool has been crystal clear.
I give them top rating. I have no idea what rates are with other companies but I feel they do pool service because it is something they enjoy and my guess is their pricing is as honest as they have always been with us.
- Johnny .
We have appreciated Jeff's knowledge and advise on different pool matters. Each year that we have owned our home we have briefly considered opening and closing our pool, only to remember how convenient and reasonably priced Jeff's services are. Dog Day's is our go to for all of our pool servicing and maintenance.

Such a great local company
We will never forgot when we first moved in and Jeff was recommended. He came out and was very helpful in explaining the ins and outs of pool ownership. They always do a great job and assist with whatever issue arises. They do great work and are genuinely good people.
- Julie .
Dog Days of Summer is one of the best companies I've ever dealt with. Very friendly. Very honest. Very knowledgeable.
- Ellen .
We have been using Dog Days since they have been in business and have never been disappointed.
From a complete pool renovation where they gladly coordinated with my contractor doing a large backyard project, to equipment installs, to weekly services, to emergency calls and closings Jeff and his team are courteous, responsive, reliable and fairly priced.
I have complete confidence in Dog Days and would not hesitate to recommend them.
- Howard .
Dog Days of Summer Rocks!
Dog Days of Summer is an excellent company. Reliable, responsive, knowledgeable, and totally pet friendly!! We have used Dog Days since we opened our pool almost 10 years ago and anyone who has a pool knows there are always issues! Jeff and his crew could not be more helpful and responsive. There has never been a time they have not done what they said would do. I would recommend 100% to anyone. They are simply the best at what they do.
- Jessica M
Best Pool Company!
We have been pool owners for 31 years and worked with several pool service companies in Maryland. We have had excellent professional service, quality products, and reasonable prices but never all at the same place until now. Thank you Dog Days of Summer for being everything we look for when searching out a company! Jeff provided prompt professional communication and service. I highly recommend this company.
- Dana .
My experiences with Dog Days has been nothing but Wonderful. I had my pool resurfaced, they did a beautiful job in a timely manner. After closing my pool, I elect to have them out for winter service. My pool opens completely clean in the spring. I have had service calls to replace the burnout light in the diving well, they came in a timely manner and replaced it.
Anytime I call them for anything, the work is always done and always with pleasant personalities. They are a pleasure to do business with....very reliable and professional!
- Joy .
Great pool service for about a decade now!
Going into 9th year of having Jeff and team service our pool. We live in Europe and get detailed updates (and photos!) of the status during their visit. Highly recommend this company for anyone who wants a very skilled and knowledgeable team to service the pool who's also able to provide just about any kind of pool repair you may need.
- Dana .
Jeff's crew is very professional and knowledgeable. They care about what they do and about pleasing the customer. We used their pool opening and closing services. We purchased our house and had never opened or closed a pool before, so they took time to answer our many questions. When they put the pool cover on top of the pool, they made sure that it would be safe for either of our young children to be near. We plan to continue using their services.
- Mia S
The best pool service company I've ever worked with
I would highly recommend Dog Days of Summer to anyone in Frederick county and beyond. They've taken great care of our pool and equipment over the years, whenever I've had a problem, they've always gotten back to me quickly and fixed it. They are the most reliable pool company I've ever worked with, thanks so much!
- Catherine .
An outstanding company.
I began using "Dog Days of Summer Pool Service" a couple of years ago at the suggestion of a neighbor, who had been very satisfied with their service for a number of years. I have been extremely pleased with their service, which has included opening and closing a vinyl pool, repairing equipment and looking after the pool while my family and I were on vacation. Jeff and his crew have been extremely responsive, even in emergencies, which must have disrupted their schedule. I heartily recommend this company.

Dog Days of Summer Pool Service
We have been using Dog Days of Summer Pool Service since we moved into our new home and they have always provided us with great service. The company’s staff is knowledgeable, proficient and very courteous. Shortly after moving into our house they came out and assisted us in getting our pool up and running. They took the time to explain the equipment that was installed, and how to maintain our pool properly. Most recently the performed winter closing services for our pool the staff was very proficient and took the time to explain the process.
- Donald .
The service was great
You have always shown up when you said you would be there. You're prompt about returning phone calls. You call if there is a problem. The job was completed in a neat and professional manner. I would definitely refer you to a friend. I'm only sorry that I hadn't found you sooner.

We are new to pool ownership and called Dog Days of Summer to originally get a crash course in how to care for our pool. Jeff was fantastic. He taught us how to care for our pool. We used them open and close our pool this year as well as problem solve some issues that we were having. They were always there for us quickly. I can't thank Dog Days enough for the fantastic service they have provided. I will not call anyone else!
- Amy .
We have been using Jeff for 3 years and often wonder why we tried to do the work ourselves prior to that. The pool is jump in ready when we get home with no worries.

DOG DAYS OF SUMMER has been a blessing to us - Not only has our pool/spa never looked better - what matters 100% is the customer service. The politeness, friendliness, if people are in the pool - checking to see if okay to ask them to get out while work is being done. Very patient with, as I do not know anything about pools or spas. Goes above and beyond with everything - including an emergency repair that was not expected. THANK YOU!!!!
- Connie .
Great job as Always
Been using Dog Days of Summer for many years now after going through a number of services in the past. It's great to finally find a pool service that was consistently good. Communications with Jeff, the owner, are always quick and efficient and he always lives up to his promises.
Started using the winter service a few years ago and it makes a big difference when opening the pool in the spring. My pool is generally able to swim in within a week after opening. I highly recommend it as well as the company.
