4. Your Pool

“Your dog isn’t automatically safe if you have a pool, not a pond. PetMD reports the small amount of chlorine in your pool likely won’t poison your dog. (Of course, you should make sure all pool chemicals, including chlorine tablets, are securely stored.) Drinking chlorinated water might cause some irritation. But the consequences typically aren’t severe. The biggest health risk associated with pools? Drowning. Not all dogs are good swimmers. You should always supervise your dog. And never assume just because a dog instinctively knows to paddle, that keeps him safe from drowning.” SOURCE: https://www.cheatsheet.com/culture/things-backyard-hidden-dangers-dog.html/4/
