    Default Dog Pools and Sandpits.

    Ok, so many of you have little paddle pools for your dogs in the back yard (well I hope they are out in the yard!) or sandpits/clams for your dogs to cool down in and play in.

    But my question is, how do you all have the patience to clean your dog down, or dry him/her off, every time the dog wanders back into the house?

    I'd go mental having to do that all day. Dog hair vacuuming is bad enough, as is drool, saliva running down windows from where they catch the flies, and the list goes on...

    How do you do it?

    Candy has a shell pool, and she only has that when I go out and she's locked out of the house...OR when the kids are playing with water and I have the back door closed...hehehe!

    MY dogs are also outside until sleep time, however I don't have to worry anyway as I went off after someone had posted how great they were and bought 2 and my dogs won't touch them except to drink out of! So can someone post now how to get your dogs to use them?!?

    My dogs have a big dam to swim in, I just hose them off and add a bit of herbal essence to the coat when they come out of it smelling like a dam water!
    editing : they are wash and wear dogs, so they dry out fast after i shammy them.

    Well obviously I'm not going to be able to leave a pool out there for my new Wolfgang or Inca all the time. I'm one of those owners who likes their dog to come in and out as we do. And I can't see myself stopping what I'm doing to dry a great big Newfie off every hour or as they see fit.
    I guess I'll just fill it up at regular intervals for the dog to use, then empty when he/she is finished in it.

    Mine also stayed outside till dry or if muddy then they shake it off. A good roll in the grass usually does it.

    My house is farmer, kid, pet friendly. I do not want hubby to feel that he has to have a shower before he sits down after a hard day's work so within reason it is no big issue for me. We always said we would get new carpets, furniture etc when kids were grown. Then came grandies, lol. I love using the coffee table that one of them made me in year 10, the wardrobe the other did. Nope, it will all stay the same.

    Rolling in something smelly and dead is, though, a yukky problem but I can smell them a mile off before they get inside. (talking about dogs, not farmers) lol.
