Accidents Are Never Planned More On Water Safety


According to Nationwide Pet Health Insurance, thousands


of family pets die each year in accidental drowning incidents. The real numbers are not known since most accidents go unre- ported. Implementing safety procedures is not a difficult task and most preventive measures are common sense. Be aware of your dog’s swimming proficiency. Realize that


this proficiency will diminish dramatically at night, especially with advancing age. Even excellent swimmers may panic in the dark or after a slip and fall into the water. In addition to French Bulldogs, other brachycephalic breeds


that aren’t usually good swimmers include Boston Terriers, Pugs, English Bulldogs, Shih Tzus, Boxers, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and Mastiffs. Stumpy in build with short snouts and heavier heads, many are unable to create adequate lift with their shorter legs and high body mass ratios. Even with a life vest on, the dogs with top heavy heads


Once the original pool was demolished, construc-


tion on the new pool took about another four months. Form followed function as the most important design features are clearly for the benefit of Pete and Shorty. A built-in “bench” was constructed all around the


perimeter on the inside of the pool. Ostensibly, the dogs can step down onto the submerged bench and be in just a about two inches of water. The pool design includes two sun shelves, one on


either end of the pool. The flat shallow areas allow the dogs to wade in water, again, only a couple of inches deep. With total focus on the safety of their dogs, Ed and


Marsha spared no expense, nor were any compromises made for their own personal enjoyment. The results are a beautiful, modern, sleek design that is safer and more comfortable. It gets a lot of use from the whole family. Well, almost everyone. “Shorty enjoys walking around the entire pool in


the water, now,” said Marsha. “Pete doesn’t want to have anything to do with the water. But, he’s always nearby.” Rest assured, the entire process of putting in a new,


safer pool has not made the Drostes complacent about water safety. All other precautions previously taken for Pete and Shorty with the old pool are still in place with the new pool.

struggle to keep their noses above the water. We recently discov- ered, and highly recommend, the Hedz Up Pets Watercollars (shown below). The personal flotation device for dogs' patented design is a hexagonal-shaped neck water collar made of non- absorbent, closed-cell foam covered with fabric and polypropy- lene strapping. The straps securely attach the Watercollar to your pet’s own collar. When the dog is swimming, or if she falls into the water, the Watercollar stays under the chin, holding the dog’s head in a position of safety, keeping the ears and nose above the water. This is especially important should the dog be knocked unconscious or if he has fallen off the boat into open water. Exhaustion in


dogs occurs after about 20 minutes of treading water, and is the number one reason dogs drown. Remember that with pets and children around water, 100%


constant supervision is imperative.U


Keep Dogs From Drowning: The unique patented design of Hedz Up Pets Watercollars (pictured above) will hold your dog’s head in a position of safety, keeping her ears and nose above water. Available for dogs weighing from 2 pounds to 225 pounds. Made in the USA. For testimonials and to order: HedzUpPets.com Receive 20% off your purchase, with the code TheNewBarker2020.
