I purchased this for my 7-month-old son! I thought it would make the perfect mini pool for this summer for him to play around in the water and learn how to make a splash! I was right! It is just the right size for him. I can add just a bit of water and he can play safely. It is easy as can be to drain the water. I had no problems at all. There is plenty of room for my baby boy to have lots of toys to play with to keep him happy and occupied for however long he is content to be in the water. I see this lasting a long while. It will be a great size for next summer as well to use as a cool off play pool for him. When he outgrows it I plan to use it for it's advertised purpose as a dog bath and for somewhere for my dog to cool off in the summers. but until my son outgrows it my dog will have to wait lol....Or maybe I'll be keeping an eye out for another of these pools!! We'll have to see! It surely is worth it! It is well made and very durable.
I love the carry bag it comes with and I like the fact that they include patches in case of any small puncture or rip occurs. I honestly don't think I will have a problem with that though. If you trim your dog's nails as I try to do and make sure that you place the pool on an area of ground that is free of sticks and other possibly damaging debris I think all will be fine for you as well!
This is also a great portable way to create a play area for a small child such as my son! It can be set up free of water and filled with some toys and a baby and keep them safely contained anywhere. It's perfect for a trip to the lake, or a day trip to the park or a family gathering! It can even be a safe place for a short nap when you are having a family day outdoors. If you have an umbrella and stand at the beach you can make the perfect shaded sun shelter!! There are more uses for this product than you could imagine!
I am in love with this. I am incredibly happy with my purchase and I know anyone else with similar needs would get a lot of use from this pool/play yard/sun shelter/dog bath/baby bath/nap area/BALL PIT/and MORE!
I hope this helps others with their future purchases! I promise you can't go wrong with buying this item. Whether for your baby or for your puppy, it is an awesome item to own and probably has more uses than I have even thought of!
