When summer rolls around, a certain guilt starts to creep up within me. See, I am the proud owner of a Lab mix who, the second it gets above 65 degrees, will act as if she is being kept as a prisoner of war every day she is not allowed in the pool. As I try to explain to my dog, we do not have a pool in our Brooklyn apartment, and I am very sorry for this. She doesn’t seem to acknowledge my apology, probably because she is a dog and doesn’t understand what I am saying. So, in a futile attempt to earn her forgiveness, we beg our relatives and friends to let us use their pools a few times each summer. And, when the opportunity presents itself, we try to make our pool days as special as possible by bringing a slew of special water toys for our pup to enjoy all day long! 

Below, some of the water toys that make our pool days some of our best days of summer.

Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)
