Pet Pool Safety

Posted

There’s something about swimming pools that inspire relaxation. Maybe you’re using it for exercise, you’re admiring your beautiful custom pool mat, or just enjoying time spent with the whole family. Well, perhaps not the whole family, since a pool can be a dangerous place when it comes to pets. Whether you have a dog, cat, lizard, or any other critter, your main concern is their safety.

A pool is a luxury and a privilege, but it’s also a big responsibility. Keep reading for a few tips to enjoy your pool and keep your pets safe.

  • An easy and effective way to keep your pets safe is to invest in a pool cover. Without a cover, a dog can fall in. Without being trained properly, they may not be able to get out. Water breeds like Labrador Retrievers and Golden Retrievers are still susceptible to hypothermia if the fall in during winter months.
  • Another useful option, especially when it comes to dogs, is to have them wear a pool alarm. We love our pets, but the fact is, they can’t fully be trusted. By walking out onto a pool cover, they run the risk of drowning, and drinking standing water on a cover can make them sick. A pool alarm fastens to your dog’s collar, and every time they come near a hot tub, pool, or other body of water, you’ll receive a notification.
  • Most people who have a dog love the idea of their pooch taking a dip with them But swimming can tire a pup out quickly, and if they’re not properly trained, they can drown. Pet guardians should teach dogs where the steps are leading out of the pool, and how to get out safely. Better yet, consider having a fence installed around your pool, so that you can control when your pet has access.

Adding Some Style To Your Pool

A rectangular hole is dug, it’s filled in with concrete, then water gets dumped in. Second is an above ground pool, where a frame is constructed, then a wall made of aluminum or steel [...]
