While this spring hasn’t been as warm as recent years here in the Northeast, we’ve still had some pretty great weather and much needed rain. Luckily, though, Memorial Day is coming up soon. That means two things: delicious food (obviously) and pools are officially set to open.

This Great Dane and her German Shorthaired Pointer BFF playing poolside have us feeling the FOMO (fear of missing out) hard. We’re more than ready to bust out our swim suits and dive into that perfect pool with them. See the beauties taking a dip below.


Swimming is second-nature to most dogs, but letting dogs swim in a pool is very different from letting them run into a wide-open body of water. Check out our guide on training dogs for swimming pool safety to help keep your dog safe.
