Where we live, there are not any safe rivers that we can take our dogs, so a pool came into our minds. They like their kiddie pool, but all they can do is just lay in it. heehee. Has anyody else bought one for their Goldens? I'm also wondering, how are they going to walk up a ladder? A deck would work, but I know that would cost more money and I would be afraid of them trying to jump back in it when we aren't there.
