Dogs love the water and would gladly paddle the day away in a pool if you let them. While it’s true that most need a little time at first to get used to the water, it doesn’t take long until they become expert swimmers!
Getting your dog to swim is also a great way to ensure they don’t overheat during the summer, which leads to dehydration and, even worse, heat stroke.
If you don’t have a swimming pool in your backyard or can’t take your dog to a local lake, a dog paddling pool is a fantastic inexpensive option to get your dog to swim and cool down. Here are our top five dog paddling pool favourites to consider today!
