Hello guys,

Here's the deal:

Where I live, we have hot summers. I have a Bernese mt. dog, who has thick fur. I also have an in-ground pool. Sobaka is very hot and I want to cool her down. I can't let her in the pool, because her nails will rip the liner. So, what have you done? Is there a cover or something I can put on her nails?

Thanks,
C

PM RonE, I think he has a good setup. Wal Mart pools are good but get a heavy duty one(better made)

My dogs swam in my pool for years (before i moved)... And never ripped the liner. Our stairs to get in and out were a giant plastic or fiberglass mold though, not liner. are your stairs liner covered or a giant plastic thing?
(2 Nova scotia duck tollers...)

If you are really worried, keep their nails rounded with a dremmel tool. Ripping a pool liner is harder than it sounds.

Do you know if Sobaka likes water? We have a pool too (liner) and our dogs don't go near it. We bought a plastic kid pool - nope, no interest. Although we do use it to bath them in. When it is that hot out (humid wise) - our Berners don't sit outside with us, even on the shaded deck. Inside with the air conditioning. And these guys are always wanting to be near us.

Ok,
Wvasko, will do. Thanks!

boon4376, Welcome to the forum! My stairs have liner.

Luvmyrotti, yes, she likes water. I have a kiddie pool, and she was enjoying it, but she couldn't cool off...

Your lucky she likes the water - I wish my guys did. Heck, I would even sit in the kiddie pool with one of them (we all couldn't fit) :D
