Doggie Dips at Swimming Pools: Is This For Real?
"Doggie Dips" consist of dog owners bringing their pets to the community pool to swim at the conclusion of "human swimming season." They are happening across the country as part of a national trend toward accommodations for pets in regulated environments. Discuss and evaluate the environmental and public health risks of these accommodations in the pool environment. Weigh in on what best practices might be implemented and the role of the EH professional in doing so.
