10 Tips for Keeping Your Pond Safe for Dogs
Our Guide to keeping our fury friends safe while also looking after our fishy friends.
1. Fence It In!
2. Keep Your Pond Algae-Free!
3. Koi Hiding Spots Are Important!
4. Keep Your Pond Water Chlorine-Free!
Make sure you’re keeping your pond free of chlorine.
Odds are you already watch out for chlorine issues, but it is doubly important when there’s a dog in the picture.
If you’re filling your koi fish pond with tap water, there may be low levels of chlorine present within it.
While these low chlorine levels are harmless to us and our dogs, they can end up being concentrated within your koi pond.
This is a risk not only to your koi fish but also to any overly curious dogs who may have sensitive stomachs.
