How to Keep Your Dog Out of Your Pool

By Invisible Fence® Brand on 05-18-2020

Summer is here and many dog owners struggle with keeping their dog out of the pool. We put together our top tips on how to keep your dog safe and out of your pool or lake.


Why is my dog trying to jump in the pool?

Before trying to change your pet’s behavior, it is important to understand why that behavior occurs. Some dogs are simply looking for a way to cool off. Jumping in a body of cool water like your pool or lake on a hot summer day is as refreshing to for your dog as it is for you. Many dogs also just love to swim. Watching an owner in the pool can be enough to tempt a dog into jumping in.

Ways to keep your dog out of your pool.

There are several different methods to keeping your dog out of the pool. In some cases, using traditional fencing around your pool can block off access for your dog.

A common misconception is that all dogs know how to swim. If your dog does not try to jump in the pool, but you are worried he may fall in and not know how to swim, a life jacket can be the perfect solution.

Another solution is Invisible Fence® Brand’s Outdoor Shields®.Our Outdoor Shields are Invisible® barriers that let you protect your yard and pet.
