One of the best activities for our dogs is swimming in a shallow pool. It is a great way to get dogs used to water in a stress-free environment. It is so much easier to have my dogs look forward to bath time when the majority of their time in water is a positive exposure at their leisure.
Not every dog loves the water, but most of them enjoy having a little pool to play in. Everyone can stay in or get out at their own pace and comfort. The kids love to play in there with their dogs, and it helps socialize our dogs to how kids splash and play in the water.
We go through the kiddie pools like crazy, because in addition to these being fun to play in, they're also fun to chew on. We have to constantly repair and replace these pools, so if you see a great deal, give me a call.
