Always supervise your dog near the pool. Even good swimmers can get into trouble.
Keep a life jacket for your dog, especially if they're new to swimming or have difficulty.
Secure the pool area to prevent unsupervised access, protecting your dog from potential hazards.
Gradually introduce your dog to the water, allowing them to get comfortable and learn how to swim.
Show your dog the exit points of the pool, ensuring they know how to get out if they fall in.
Keep your dog away from pool chemicals; they can be harmful if ingested.
Provide fresh water to keep your dog hydrated, especially after swimming.
