Many of us love our family dog so much, we don't see it as a problem when they jump in the backyard pool to go for a swim. But the reality is your dog's ears, nose and eyes are more sensitive than yours, and the chlorine in the pool may actually harm them in the long run. To be on the safe side, look for non-chlorine chemicals like bromine to keep your pool clean and safe. And if your dog does go for a swim, rinse them off with fresh water from the garden hose to prevent pool chemicals from drying on their skin and fur.
