Dogs are fine to swim in home chlorine pools as long as the chlorine is at a regular level. Just ensure that your dog is able to drink plenty of freshwater after getting out of the pool.

Several dogs love to dive in the family pool with their owners during the hot summer months. Many pool owners will tell you that chlorine is safe at the levels in swimming pools.

People swim in it and sometimes will gulp some water unintentionally without any harm. The eyes, ears and the nose of a dog are more sensitive than those of human beings and as such might be a bit more susceptible to chlorine effects.  When it comes to the ears, many infections in puppies that have floppy ears are typically caused by dampness and water, not the chlorine content in the water.
