Yep, the goob can use the ladder to get out from in the pool and we put a piece of wood at the top of the ladder to widen it, and then I have a platform and stairs on the outside. He is quite amazing!!! For such a "stout"
dog, he supports his weight well!! He has the strength to pull himself out and it is pretty funny to watch!!
His collars take a beating, and up until recently it did great, but it is starting to take on an odd shape. Don't know how to explain it, but the material seems to have stretched in some areas and shrunk on others. It still works though and matches his lifejacket well. It has lasted longer than many of his collars though. He is tough on them. It is a good collar for strumming around in the yard incase I need to grab him, but we use a thicker collar for his walks since we have not mastered the pulling like a jackass routine!! I fear him collapsing his trachea with the strength and intensity of his pulling! We are in training now, so hopefully we will get it under control soon!! There has been improvements, but we still have a lot of work ahead to do!!!
