Water Hazards

There are many hidden dangers to watch out for when owning a new dog. Young dogs are particularly inquisitive and full of life and energy. If you have a pool in your garden, no matter how small, keep your puppy well away. It is a common misconception that all dogs can swim. Young puppies, particularly, can be at risk from drowning; they are often not strong enough to pull themselves out of the water.

In the winter months your pond or pool can be especially hazardous to your pet. Your dog may decide to wander onto thin ice that is not strong enough to support the weight of your pet, resulting in the pet drowning or suffer from hypothermia. It is therefore best to fence off any pools or other areas where your dog may get into trouble.
