Safe to take puppy in the pool now?
I just want to say first how much I appreciate how friendly and helpful all of your are, me being new to this forum. It's really much fun talking about our fuzzy little darlings. Anyway, I am wondering how soon I can introduce Pixie to the pool. It's hot as blazes here, and I know Havanese take to the water well-but is it too soon? I don't want to traumatize her and ruin it for later. Of course we would be right there holding her. She's a really small girl, not even 2 pounds and is ten weeks old. Too young-too tiny? Forgive me if this question sounds fundamental-I haven't cared for a dog in 20 years, and even then I think my mom did all for the work. It's a salt water pool vs chlorine, if that makes any difference. (My daughter gets really itchy in heavily chlorinated water-not sure if the dogs have the same issues). Thanks in advance everyone. Sorry if I sound like a clueless doofus!
