Backyard Water!!

I also have a yard which floods in the spring or
when we experience a lot of rain. here is my
problem. My backyard slopes from the very back
to about 2-12 feet lower in the center
and is the lowest of the yards to which I am joined.
In the spring or during heavy rainfall,
my yard accumulates the most water. I end up
having a pool 3-4 inches deep across my yard.
To compound the situation I have 2 large dogs
who love to play in the backyard and run thru the
water. My question is, would it be adviseable to
bring in a load of topsoil and build the yard up
to the same level as the adjoining yards and
reseed it or is there another solution
which you are know of?
