Public pools in Indiana are open Memorial Day through Labor Day but when is the right time to open your personal pool?  The quick answer is once temperatures are consistently 60° and higher, which typically happens in April. Some may think that the longer it is open the more work and the more cost but don’t discount the fact that the longer the pool is open the more time there is for fun and memories! So…if you haven’t opened your pool yet…it’s time to enjoy!

There are so many great benefits to having a pool when you have children. The convenience of being able to learn to swim in your own pool, at your home cannot be overstated. With family schedules as hectic as they are, being able to have someone come to your home and give swim lessons is definitely an advantage. Kids are more comfortable in their own surroundings, which can make learning to swim a much more pleasant experience.

Swimming is also great exercise. Whether you are swimming laps or just playing and having fun in the pool, being in the pool ensures you’re getting exercise. Playing basketball or volleyball in the pool, adds a new dimension of fun to those games. Not to mention, being in the pool gets kids outside in the fresh air and off their electronic devices.

Pool maintenance is also a fantastic teaching and bonding opportunity.  If kids take part in the fun times at the pool, they should also take part in the maintenance and upkeep of the pool. Make it a family affair!  Everybody has a pool chore to do and it can be time spent together, maybe even having fun.

Playing and exercising with the family dog is fun for the whole crew. When it’s hot outside and everyone needs to cool off, it’s easy to jump in the pool and continue the fun. But is it safe for a dog to swim in the pool? I get asked this often.

The main reason dog owners are concerned about their four-legged friends swimming in pools is the chlorine. Unlike humans, dogs don’t necessarily know not to consume water. However, just like humans, if a dog were to swallow and digest a small amount it is fine. The main concern is if they drink a large amount of chlorine water. This could cause salt poisoning and is the equivalent to a human drinking a lot of ocean water.

Some dogs are is more sensitive to chlorine and chemicals than other dogs. If you notice any abnormal scratching, then it is best to try to keep your pooch out of the pool.

The best ways to help your pet avoid drinking pool water or getting irritated skin is to provide plenty of fresh drinking water. You can also hose your dog off with clean water after fido gets out of the pool.

Swimming is a wonderful exercise and bonding experience for you and your dog. With some safety precautions, you and your pets can enjoy the dog days of summer.
