I agree. I definitely wouldn't put in a dog door if it would give him direct access to a pool area. It would be asking for trouble. In fact, I feel that someone should be out with him at all times, no matter how old he is, under those circumstances. It only takes a second.
Our area has a high coyote population, so I would never trust a dog door here. Tyler is 15 years old and since moving to Cape Cod seven years ago, he has not been out alone even with a fenced-in backyard. In fact, who ever is out with him, has an air horn in hand.
