Wednesday was the first day of spring, and at least where I live, (outside Cleveland Ohio aka Lake Effect Snow country) we ushered in the new season with several inches of snow. Typical Cleveland. But this week’s blog is not about spring, or the snow, but to remind you that the dog days of summer are only three months away. A good time to start looking for a doggy pool. Yes, you read right. A doggy pool for your four-legged best friend.
Did you know…according to dogpools.com, there are just as “many different types of dog pools” as there are types of dogs.
Here are some helpful hints to find the perfect doggy pool for your dog this summer.
No Kidding: Doggy pools are not the same as kiddie pools. Doggy pools are more durable than kiddie pools. Additionally, they are able to withstand the sharp parts of a dog’s body (think: nails, teeth) that could puncture the average kiddie pool.
Splash or Cool Down: Be sure the pool provides your dog with enough room to move around easily. Also, know the answers to these questions before you head out.
Do you want your dog…to get in and out of the pool unassisted? To be able to splash around or just lay down for a cool down and soak? Do you want the pool to be deep enough for them to do the doggy paddle? Or do you want the pool to hold just a few inches of water for them to cool off?
Doggy pools provide a cool place for your dog on a hot summer day. It can also provide hours of fun for the entire family.
