Even Dogs Need Swimming Supplies

Aug 17, 2007
In earlier years a large number of family pets died in swimming pool tragedies. With the majority of us having outdoor lives in the summer months, this is not a surprise. It is instinctive to take the dog or other pet out with you. We take so many precautions when it comes to protecting our children from the pitfalls of water danger, what are we doing for our capricious canine?

When your dog falls into your pool, it is true that they will be able to swim for some time, but if you can not help them soon, they will get overcome with fatigue and their chances of drowning increase. Is there a solution to prevent this tragedy? Actually there is. One could place a little ramp in the swimming pool which extends from the pool to the poolside. This will let a pet walk out of the pool with ease.

Such a ramp is classified as a swimming supply for animal safety in two sizes - regular, and big dog. This is a safeguarded exit or entrance ramp from the pool to poolside that your loving pet can use effortlessly. It is best to use ramps that are chemical and UV retardant. Such ramps are basically plastic ramps with wing strips, nylon rope attachments and fasteners.

You have to initiate your dog to this ultra nouveau swimming supply. It has been shown that wild will instinctively understand how to use the ramp in the event of an emergency. But the more domesticated your dog is, the more he will need to shown how to use this device. Take your pet right in the pool with you, and show them how they can climb right out of the pool using the ramp. If they are apprehensive of, put one of their favorite treats on the pool side at the top of the ramp.

As always when you are using food to buyoff your dog, only do this once or twice or they will expect this every time they climb out of the pool.

If the ramp isn't 100% foolproof and you still have concerns about their pool safety, invest in a life jacket. There are many pet stores online that offer all different sizes of them, and you can get them in a variety of colors as well. Dogs love to be in the water, but if they feel the least bit unsafe, problems will arise. There is no reason you can't protect them the same way you would protect your children. Your pets safety and your peace of mind can be as easy as that.
