Kiddie Pool
 
Does anyone have vinyl bottom kiddie pool? Im looking specifically at the one at walmart with the inflatable rim. Am I being too naive to think the inflatable part wont get chewed on and the vinyl bottom wont be torn?

The hard plastic pools look too shallow for a 100lb dog, but looking through old threads it seems that is the pool of choice around here.

Lol yes you are naive. I bought an inflatable pool and it lasted literally a couple of minutes. That was a puppy though. With a large Shepherd I'd worry about their nails puncturing it. Toys r us has a good selection of pools

Also look at hard plastic or rubber stock tanks, they come in many sizes and shapes and are much more durable.

Absolutely! Plastic tub or stock tank.

Traveler (90 lbs) loves his hard plastic one (Toys R us for less than $20). If the water is too deep-more than 4-5", he won't stay in it. I have it under the shade of a palm. I think he just likes having his belly cooled. He likes water but does not like to swim.

With a drain at the bottom. ;) :D

:laugh:Ah yes, the drain.

Blew that part of the equation since most of the kiddie pools don't come with so I ended up using some HomeDepot plumbing goodies and made my own. Cut a round hole in the side of the tub just above the floor and then cut a short 2" length of 1" PVC and just stuck capped both ends with those round PVC caps. I used some waterproof goop around the hole. It's not pretty but it works.

I have two of the extra large hard plastic pools and a sprinkler for them.
