My dog loves the pool. I don't make him stay outside though. I dry him off the best I can and let him come inside.

I have toweled up the kitchen floor many times though. Sometimes he sneaks in the pool and comes back in before i know. (doggy door). I just towel it up. It's not a big deal. All part of having a dog and a pool.

one last question though. Should I not leave him outback by himself ever? or will he *maybe* grow out the whole howling thing as he gets older?

for some reason I'm getting the vibe you guys wouldn't want me to leave him outback by himself ever
I never don't leave my dogs outside by themselves. They do have a doggy door, but if they are gone longer than it takes to potty I'm out seeing what they are doing.

My parents will leave their dogs outside if the weather is nice. I guess it's personal preference.

yeah right towel dry a thick double coated gsd. lol spend a couple bucks on the air force dryer that just blows the water off and out of the coat. and is also fairly quick. . mild dew and yeast can become real issues.

this dryer is also good for drying cars and motorcycles.

oh yea, get the dryer!!!

and yes, not a fan AT ALL of leaving dogs out alone. way too many things can happen. and happen in an INSTANT. just not worth it to me to take a chance, have heard way too many horror stories.

what's plan delta? lolol...

Exactly.

The blower is invaluable if you have a pool.
I use it daily on Hans even if he doesn't swim. Gets rid of loose hair,dust, dander, fluffs and refreshes the coat.

jeez, how dangerous do you think my backyard is? it's only like 50x100 ft with a pool in the corner
There aren't any swords or knives laying on the ground, I promise

I'm teaching my five month old quiet before she goes out. Her whining and barking starts as soon as I let her out of her crate each morning.I have her sit and she has to be quiet before she can join the others outside. But boy she can be so loud before I get that silence. Right now I don't make her hold it long but at least she knows what I want. You could have her sit, go just inside the door,give her a treat as soon as she quiets,work up to longer silent times. This pup of ours is so noisy compared to our older dog.

Puppies can disappear from backyards easily. I am in a relatively good area, and it has happened here.

You could try giving him a Kong filled with peanut butter so he'll stay busy while he dries off and learns to be outside alone
