Swimming isn’t only for people. Dogs and other pets love it too! Just like us, It helps cool them off on a hot day. If you plan on taking your pet swimming, make sure they have learned how to swim first. Start out is shallow waters. You will learn if your pet needs a safety vest for swimming. These can be purchased for around $25. Also, get in with them and invite other people and their pets. Dogs are usually confident with others around. A helpful hint is: you should keep them on a leash while swimming the first couple times. They might keep on swimming away! You should clean your dog before and after swimming for keeping bacteria and chemicals off. Now, my local public pool has a day at the end of the summer for pets and their owners to go swimming! It isn’t expensive either. check out and see if your pool has the same. Have a safe and fun time in the water!
