I am thinking of buying one for my dogs in the summer when it gets hot out..does anybody use the kiddie pools for their dogs? if so which ones hold up against paws n claws? Also, my dog freely gets on the trampoline and uses it to bounce up and down, i have caught my dogs bouncing together after i have let them out for pees, i am assuming its because they are bored and waiting for their walks, its hilarious..anyone else have dogs that love to bounce?

You've gotta take video of the trampoline thing.

On kiddie pools we use them on puppies with bottles in them and other things that make noise to help train puppies to be less sensitive to strange noises at an early age. We throw kibble in there for them to go find and stuff like that. I use them to help cool the adult dogs down when doing any kind of play outside in the hot summer months. The hard plastic ones seem to hold up great. I can't speak to the soft ones.

We have a trampoline but the dog never gets on it. Ours has a high safety guard all the way around. We keep it zipped and have a lock on the zip when it is not in use so he does not have free access to it. We have very strict rules- only one kid on at a time and no child who does not live in our home allowed AT ALL. I don't think Mace would follow our rules ;) so I don't encourage his use of the thing.

Well the trampoline is going to the dump this summer...its been peed on and my SO's son had a flu moment on it, we cleaned it the best we could but its just ready for the dump. Basic plastic kiddie pools at toy r us sound good. I am going to make their sun room into more of a kennel, it already has the sliding glass doors all around it which can be opened in the heat and they can ave total access to the outside with shade and the pool, right now its were they go to lay down but i am storing alot of stuff i dont use aymore in there.
