Sammy has always had a pool every since I got her. The first thing that I did after bringing her home at 10 weeks was to put her in the water and start teaching her where she needed to go in order to get out of the pool. We started off simple...right around the steps teaching her where they were and what they were for. Gradually moved her farther and farther away and eventually she learned what to do if she ever fell in. With the bigger dogs (lab and shepard/boxer mixes) she has been knocked in a few times and always made her way to the steps and out. In fact she loves the pool in the summer months as she has her own blow up raft (see cover of 2007 calendar for her summer afternoon pose) and when she has sunned enough she slides off into the water and swims over to the steps.

The best thing that you can do is to teach both Pooh Bear and Sadie what the pool is and how to get to safety in case of mishaps.
