Remember To Keep Your Dog Safe By The Pool
If you have a pool at home, make sure you keep your dog safe. Just because your pooch is an avid swimmer like Cody doesn’t mean you can give them free access to the water without supervision.
Here are five tips for keeping your dog safe when you have a backyard pool:
- 1. Build a fence around your pool so your dog can’t enter when you’re not around.
- 2. Train your dog to exit the pool. If they ever fall in, they’ll know exactly how to get out.
- 3. Get a doggy life jacket. Even experienced swimmers are safer with a life jacket.
- 4. Get a pool alarm. This will let you know if anything, including your dog, enters your pool when you aren’t looking.
- 5. Learn dog CPR. If an emergency happens, you’ll need to know how to help your dog.
Summer is a lot of fun, but it also presents some new dangers for our dogs. Keep these tips in mind, and you’ll have a great season by the pool with your pooch. Don’t forget to take pictures and videos if your dog does something silly in the pool like Cody in the video above!
