Swimming Safety

Practice Safe Swimming with your family and pets !

Tip 1: While under supervision, teach young dogs and dogs new to the pool where the steps are. Make sure they always exit at the steps so they will remember where to go if they fall in.


Tip 2: Even dogs who love the water often need to be forced to take a break. Always be on the lookout for signs of fatigue.


Tip 3: Not all dogs can swim. Older dogs, heavy dogs, or certain breeds of dogs just don’t get the hang of it immediately. Test your dog in a controlled environment. For these dogs, the safest course of action may be a doggie life vest.
