Dempsey's paddling pool arrived - so far so good

Post by Eleanor on Tue May 20, 2014 2:10 pm

It went reasonably well! happy He was very happy to jump in and out while it was empty. When we added an inch of water, he refused to go in - dipped his paws in briefly, but otherwise just shuffled at the edge.

Next time, we're going to add warm water veeeeery slowly while he's inside. He did want to go in, but he was too nervous and the water was probably a bit too cold.

The pool's a decent size as well! happy

Yes, it's a reasonable size, he can get his whole body inside with a little room to spare.

He wanted his toys & the treats put on top of them, but wasn't willing to get more than a damp claw to get them! laughing 

Maybe next time!

Slow and steady wins the race! I have no doubt that he will settle to it eventually! happy

Yes, I think he will, it'll just take a bit of persuasion!

No-go today, unfortunately! He got his paws damp, but then refused to do anything else.

Then decided he was going to run and greet mum when she came home, slicing through my toe with his claws! laughing Ouch!

Hopefully! happy Just not really sure how to make it fun for him. It's difficult on my own, as he's used to just sleeping in the morning. Tried treats and toys, which worked to an extent.

Yes, they do! Demps has turned it into an art! laughing
