Summer Caution

Poolside Safety: Prevent Pet Drowning Deaths

Thankfully the laws surrounding Australian pool safety have been tightened in the last few years, not only does this protect our children, it also protects (most) of our pets.

Many dogs love water, particularly on a hot day. Swimming and playing in the water is an awesome way for dogs to get some exercise and burn off some energy in summer... however jumping into the pool and being able to climb back out.. are two very different things. Be aware of the danger pools to unsupervised dogs. Every year, dogs drown in swimming pools. Not all dogs are good swimmers. And even if they were bad things could still happen.
