Swimming pools are a danger zone for pets year round. Ensure this leisure area is kept secure from both children and pets. Yes, all dogs (and cats) can swim but they may not be able to get out and drown trying. BUT NOT ALL ARE COMPETENT SWIMMERS. While there are special ramps to assist pets that accidentally fall in, once again, if they are disorientated, they may not be able to reach this safety device in time.

Distraction toys such as a Kong can provide additional hours of fun if you stuff it with Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree and freeze the toy until the puree is solid. Be sure to give the stuffed Kong to your dog outside or somewhere where you won’t mind cleaning up the mess – if he doesn’t lick up everything for you! Peanut butter is another great option.
