Whilst regulations govern most pool fencing requirements, it is a good idea to check your fencing is pet proof.
Cover any gaps. When introducing a new pet, puppy or kitten to your backyard, make sure they cannot squeeze between any gaps or spaces. It is a good idea to cover the bottom portion of the pool fence or gate with rigid plastic, glass or Perspex.
Check regularly for tunnels or holes that your pet may have dug around the pool and have these covered.
Don’t leave chairs or tables adjacent to the pool fences that can be used as a launching pad to jump over the fence.
Chemicals and electrical leads. Check that all pool chemicals are stored safely out of your pet’s reach and electrical leads are out of reach from a chewing puppy.
