Pool for Dogs

Recently we bought a large vinyl-sided kiddie pool to help rehabilitate our dogs who recently had FHO surgery. We couldn’t take Chelsea to the beach as much as we wanted; when we learned Scarlett also needed FHO surgery and took in a foster puppy in the same condition, we knew we needed a solution! This $20 kiddie pool from WalMart was the answer– and an added backyard perk for Harley, the water bug :)

Our first doggy pool experience.

Swimming is a great post-surgery workout; it strengthens the diminished leg muscles and improves muscle function. Additionally, dogs heal much faster than those who do not swim. At first, we put both Chelsea and Bethany on leashes and walked them around the pool in circles. When they got comfortable, we removed the leashes and let them splash around.

Bethany is still looking for her forever home! Click here to learn more about her!
