Swimming Pool Safety for your Biewer Terrier
It’s important to take proper precautions to ensure their safety. Here are some tips for keeping your Biewer safe around the pool:
- Supervise your Biewers at all times when they are near the swimming pool. Even if your pup is a strong swimmer, accidents can still happen.
- Consider installing a fence or gate around the pool area to prevent your pup from accidentally falling in.
- Make sure your Biewer Puppy knows how to get out of the swimming pool on its own. This can be done by teaching them to swim to the stairs or by placing a floating device in the pool for them to use as a stepping stone.
- Keep pool chemicals out of reach of your Biewer. Chlorine and other chemicals can be harmful if ingested or if they come into contact with your dog’s skin.
- Keep a life jacket or flotation device on hand for your dog. This can be especially useful for dogs who are not strong swimmers or for older Biewer Terriers who may be less agile.
- Keep an eye out for signs of hypothermia in your puppy. Dogs can become hypothermic if they spend too much time in cold water, especially if they are small or have short hair. Symptoms of hypothermia include shivering, lethargy, and difficulty breathing.
Swimming pools can be a great source of fun and exercise for Biewer Terriers
By following these safety precautions, you can help ensure that your dog has a fun and safe time in the swimming pool. Remember to always supervise your dog and be aware of any potential hazards to keep them safe.
