Is it Dangerous for us to let our Pomeranian's Jump into our Pool (Chlorinated)? We have not let them but everyday they try to get in it. Some friends let their dogs swim in their pools but of course those are much Bigger dogs.......Thanks for any answers

its fine! Just make sure to rinse them completely and dry them well afterward and make sure they can get out if needed. Poms are not usually good swimmers, a life jacket might be a good idea too.
