Hopefully these hints help to ensure you and your pets have a happy and safe time on your pool. We are here to answer questions and help you build the pool of your dreams that also fits your security needs. Memorial day is right around the corner, and for countless pool owners, that means your pool will probably be available for the year ! There are a couple of things to plan for, but a lot important is security. As we all know, kids should always be supervised in and around pools, but did you know you need to be seeing over your pets also? This may be tough if they have free selection in your yard and you don’t have your pool fenced off. It’s encouraged that pool obstacles are 4-5′ tall, which keeps pets, kids, and most wild animals away from the pool. Running around warm wet concrete all day would irritate most feet, along with your dog’s paw pads are not any exception. Make sure they don’t become scratched up or burnt.
  • Dog life jackets have become widely available since more and more people bring their pets along on experiences together. These are a terrific choice if you don’t understand how well your pet swims, are just getting them accustomed to the water, or understand they are not a strong swimmer.
  • If your pets have free range over an area where there’s a pool, we recommend purchasing an alarm. Many pet owners buy an alarm system for kids that can go off if it’s sensor comes in contact with water by affixing the sensor into the pet’s collar. It may be dangerous because they deceptively look like a hard flat surface for your pets.
  • In case your pet does fall into the water, then there needs to be a way out. While we understand the measures are there, it can be hard for pets to tell. Investing in a detachable ramp could help save your pet’s life.
  • Give them plenty of colour. On hot days, your pet is at least as susceptible to getting heatstroke as you are, but you’ve got the upper hand so you are able to ask for assistance and get exactly what you want. Together with shade, ensure your pet has plenty of fresh water. You don’t want them thinking pool water is OK to drink and getting sick.
  • Talking of swimming water, chemicals in your pool may lead to skin irritation. Make sure that you wash your pet off well after swimming. Most cats will not voluntarily jump into a pool like a dog, but both dogs and cats may fall in. Heavy dogs with shorter legs are especially at risk for drowning as they locate swimming really challenging. The sad fact is that over 5,000 family pets drown in swimming pools annually.
