Hi,This is my 1st post on this forum. I have a 11 yo yellow lab names Chester. We just recently lost our 14 yo Dal,and We are planning on adding 2 new lab puppies to our family in the spring and now looking for a breeder who breeds white labs unless I can find them at a rescue shelter. My question is wanting to get a pool for them. I'm wanting to get something bigger than a childs blue plastic pool that we have now for Chester.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks so much!
I am so sorry for your recent loss.
"White" Labs are really a very light yellow. I'm guessing that you want 2 puppies because you think Chester is too old to play with a new pup. Why not try one pup first and see how it goes with him. Our first Lab, Heidi was 10YO when we lost her canine lifetime pal. We got a yellow Lab from a shelter and Heidi was thrilled and acted like a puppy herself.
The plastic kids pool is best because dog claws don't make holes in them. I don't know how big they come, but why not try a smaller one first and see how puppy reacts. (My dogs think they are big drinking bowls.)
Sorry for your loose and welcome.
I have a bestway above pool for Ernie as he has HD. He loves it.
Pic is only one I can get from work. He has a wet suit so he can swim 9 months of the year.
Hi, your babies are gorgeouos.!....The reason for getting 2 puppies at one time is because when Chester passes away (not wishing that anytime soon) The puppies won't be alone and will have each other. I thought also getting puppies from same litter would make them bond so much better. Thanks for you suggestions.....
I would be hesitant about getting two puppies at the same time. There is a tendency for them to bond with each other very strongly and not bond as well to their people. This can be overcome, but it may take quite a lot of work.
Just one more question, what size is it, depth/diameter?
Consider at the least getting the pups about three months apart so that you can bond with the first and complete at least his basic training. As RLD said it's better to bond with one first otherwise you could have training problems.
