You Can Now Get A Foldable Paddling Pool Just For Your Dog
Temperatures are set to sizzle this weekend and while us humans can arm ourselves with ice cold drinks, frozen bed sheets and fans, our fur babies often have a harder time in the sweltering heat.
But now, pet product manufacturer Rosewood is selling a foldable paddling pool for your pooch - and the best bit is, it doesn't even need inflating.
Available in sizes small, medium and large, the walls of the pool are made from fortified plastic and MDF, which not only reduces water spillage and prevents punctures but also means it doesn't need inflating.
And when it comes to putting the pool away, all you need to do is open the side valve to release the water.
It's also transportable and ideal for taking on a doggo-friendly staycation. It's packaged in its own bag with handles, meaning you can take it with you wherever you go.
Prices range from £26.99-£58 depending on size and you can snap one up on Amazon.

With temperatures set to remain very warm for many parts of the UK over the next week, it's important to remember how to keep your dog cool and how to avoid heatstroke.
Earlier in the summer, we told you how one vet issued a warning about walking our pooches in the scorching weather, explaining they shouldn't be exercised in temperatures over 19°C.
VetsNow explained: "It's generally safe in temperatures of up to 19°C (68°F) but be careful when the mercury rises above this. Even at temperatures as low as 20°C (70°F) dogs are at risk of heat stroke.
"Heat stroke in dogs is essentially a high temperature not caused by a fever. It occurs when dogs are no longer able to self-regulate and keep their temperature at a comfortable level."
Between the temperatures of 16-19°C it's generally safe to exercise dogs at any time of the day.
Anything above this and dogs can be at risk of heatstroke. VetsNow consider 28-31°C dangerous for all dogs, but life threatening for puppies, larger breeds or dogs that are obese or flat-faced. At temperatures of 32°C or higher, heat stroke is a major risk regardless of breed or condition.
You can find more helpful advice on how to keep your dog cool - and spot heatstroke - over on the Blue Cross website.
