    DefaultDoes your lab swim in the pool?

    We are moving into a house with a chlorine pool, and I was wondering what everyone's thoughts or experience has been with this? I wasn't sure if the chlorine was bad for them or not.

    No advice, but I'm jealous you're going to have a pool!! I wanted a pool for the boys so bad when we moved. Hubby said no. Waaaa!

    Yes, mine swim in the pool. I recently switched from ionization to chlorine tabs in the skimmer. No problem with the dogs.

    May I ask why you switched? Isn't the ionization better?

    CJ doesn't know how to swim. I can't imagine why. It's not like he's a spoiled, pampered pup or anything...

    We had a pool and used chlorine for years and Princess loved it (so did I)! The cholorine never bothered her and she went in the pool all the time. I just hosed her off when she came out. You and your pup will LOVE it!!!!

    Cappy had a pool for the first six years of his life. He absolutely loved it!







    When we built our retirement home here in TX in 2004, we thought that with 132 acres and 5 ponds the dawgs didn't need a pool. That was a mistake on my part and wish we had added one back then.

    We don't have a pool, but if we did, i'd love to have the pups in, 1 of my 3 hates swimming so it would help him to overcome his fear if i could get in with him...sadly i'm not willing to jump into the swampy mud holes that Jasmine frequents to help him out!
