Why you need a dog paddling pool for your Cockapoo

Cockapoos 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 Cockapoo to swim is also a great way to ensure they don’t overheat during the summer, which leads to dehydration and even worse a 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 Cockapoo to swim and cool down. Here are our top five dog paddling pool favourites to consider today!

HOMIMP Foldable Dog Swimming Pool Bathing Tub

If you’re a pet owner with multiple Cockapoos, you may want to consider a more substantial dog pool that provides them with enough pool space to swim together.

These foldable pool sizes come in M, L and XL, offering a maximum diameter of 160cm at 30cm high. Its XL size enables children to bathe in the pool with their Cockapoo friends. 

Perfect for a warm day outdoors, the tub’s smooth surface is resistant to dog bites and contains thick MDF material within its pool walls to prevent the pool being knocked over.
