How To Easily Repair Your Dog’s Inflatable Pool



How To Easily Repair Your Dog's Inflatable Pool

Buying an inflatable pool for your dog is a risky purchase.

You go into the purchase knowing full well that there’s a very good chance that the pool is not going to make it through the summer.

People tell you that it’s a waste of money. Your dog’s going to chew it or their nails are going to rip it.

But you’re a risk taker so you buy it anyway.

You are going to prove every single one of those people wrong.

You can and you will have an inflatable dog pool that will last the whole Summer.

It will be the best $7 investment that you EVER made.

Fast forward to the middle of summer and one day you find yourself staring at a shriveled up deflated pool.

Damn it.

There’s a hole in it.


But the hole wasn’t made by your dog, it was made by an actual nail. The nail that was sticking out of the post that you carelessly propped it up against.

Double damn it.

You have no one to blame but yourself.

Then you’re dog looks at you with those puppy dog brown eyes because he really wants to go in his pool and you know that no stores have inflatables left because it’s the middle of Summer and Summer is gone in the stores so you have to find a way to fix it………………  and you go to the internet for help.

You reluctantly publish a post that the pool has suffered a devastating injury. You admit defeat and just when you’re waiting for everyone to tell you that they told you so,  a brave soul comes out and suggests Shoe Goo. (Thank you Lisa!)

What can Shoe Goo do for your dog’s inflatable pool that has a hole?

Check out this video:

So easy and it really works! Just apply, cover and let dry!

This is Sherman sitting in his newly renovated inflatable pool about 24 hours after we used the Shoe Goo:

The hole in Sherman’s pool was right on the outside white part and was about the size of a dime but it’s totally sealed up now and holding it’s own.

Sure the Shoe Goo was $6 and almost as much as the inflatable pool but I saved Summer!

I purchased Shoe Goo from a local hardware store down the road but it is also available on Amazon.

It should go without saying but I’ll say it anyways, Shoe Goo is a toxic substance and should not be ingested by dogs. If you think your dog is going to eat the area where you applied it, don’t use it.

Where did you find an inflatable pool for $8? I've never seen a pool similar to the one depicted priced at less than $30.

Hi Virginia, this pool was from Big Lots I believed. It was on clearance

Wow, I had no idea that stuff was so useful. I could have used it earlier this week when I threw out my yoga ball. ? Lesson learned.

Ugh! I bet it would of worked perfect on the yoga ball!

Glad the pool is back in business and I'm sure the boys are too! We have a hard plastic pool as it tends to have a longer life span.

Sherman is glad it's fixed. The thought of having to clean the spiders out of the old plastic one gave me the willies!
