Swimming Pools for Dogs


Dog pools are a great way to stay cool in the summer. Hydrotherapy is also proven to offer therapeutic benefits to your pooch. Pet swimming pools come in various sizes where some models are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Depending on the size of your dog you may need a large swimming pool where smaller dogs would be better suited in a puppies paddling pool. Keep reading below for the best dog bathing pools we found…

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 pet safe swimming pool instead.

Foldable swimming 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. Now splashing and having fun can be enjoyed by the entire family, including your pooch! Here are the best swimming pools for dogs we found:

Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use this large pet swimming pool can be used as a bathing tub for your dogs and also for medicated bathing filled with balls or sand (not just water)!

Enjoy playing with water toys and encourage your dog to get wet. Made from non-toxic materials and extra strong PVC composite fabric this dog pool by Yaheetech is safe to use and built to withstand heavy use. MDF plate and high-quality PVC compound cloth material are environmentally friendly and scratch resistant. The material at the bottom is made from anti-skid and wear-resistant texture on the surface to prevent dogs and children from sliding or slipping. UV protection function reduces bright light reflection and improves service life. The swimming pool is cold resistant so can even withstand snow and subzero conditions if you and your pooch fancy a dip in the cold!

We even heard of some parents using this as a portable travel bath for their babies! The folding design means this dog bathing pool is easy to pack away and take with you on summer vacations. Cleaning the pool and changing water is very efficient using the advanced draining system.
