These dog swimming pools are a great way to stay cool in the summer. But did you know that hydrotherapy is also proven to offer therapeutic benefits to your pooch as well? Dog pools can be used to rehabilitate injuries and relieve pain.
Dog bathing pools come in various sizes, where some models are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Other dog bathing pools are foldable so can be stored or transported easily. Depending on the size of your dog, you may need a large dog pool where smaller dogs would be better suited in a puppies paddling pool.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use a standard inflatable paddling pool for my pooch?
Do not make the mistake of purchasing standard kids, paddling pools or inflatable swimming pools as they are not built to withstand sharp dog paws and heavy scratching: Not to mention the materials used may be toxic and not safe to use for animals. Every dog owner we know who tried this only wasted their money and ended up buying a puncture-proof dog swimming pool instead.
What are the different types of dog swimming pools?
Both outdoor/indoor dog swimming pools are available in various sizes. Foldable dog paddling pools can conveniently be taken apart, put into a storage bag and taken with you on camping trips or put out of sight during winter. More expensive dog swimming pools have anti-slip surfaces with UV protection material for added safety and durability. So splashing and having fun can be enjoyed by the entire family, including your pooch!
