Are you enjoying the beautiful summer weather? Swimming pools are a great way to enjoy the sunshine, while staying cool. Here are a few ways to make sure you and your pets are safely enjoying the weather poolside.
Swimming Pool Safety:
- Always Supervise Pets – Not all dogs are good swimmers. Never leave your pet unsupervised around water.
- Don’t Let Them Drink Pool Water – Provide pets with a clean bowl of fresh water outside so that they won’t be tempted to drink the pool water. Chlorine and other chemicals can leave your pet with a belly ache.
- Buy a Life Vest – If you love spending time in and around water, it might be a good idea to invest in a dog life vest. These life vests provide extra buoyancy so that your dog can stay afloat.
- Put A Fence Around the Pool – Pool fences are important for homeowners that cannot supervise pets when they are in the backyard. This will help keep dogs out of the pool area when you’re not around.
