Thread: Drinking pool water.

  1. #1

    Default Drinking pool water.

    Has anyone ever had issues with their puppies or dogs drinking pool water. Of course he has fresh water but whenever we are in pool he likes drinking it. Thanks

    Yes my first lab was a pool freak, she swam, drank, just sprawled out on the step when it was hot and retrieved the kids when they were in the pool swimming. Don't have any idea of the cause but she developed cancer in her throat and mouth and i had to put her down just before her 13th birth day.

    Not a pool but my 14 mo YLF loves to jump in the creek, swim around and lap up some agua. Probably just a lab thing. Imagine preferring that dirty stuff over nice clean tasteless well water.

    So you want to make MNH a special dog? To get invited 5 Master passes in fiscal year every year at 80% success. 5 of 6 = 83 % 6 of 8 = 75%

    Minimum of 10 total passes in career (would hold out the young hot shot dogs who really might be not ready but are being pushed) with a 75% pass rate maintained to qualify for invitation.

    If they fall in head first and can't get out you might see a problem.

    Mine have and several others drink out of our pool, no issues that I have seen. We do watch however to not let them in or drink right after doing weekly chemicals.
