Special swimming pools for pets just turned into a booming business this summer in most parts of China, as heat waves pose a big threat to health–for both humans and animals, especially dogs.
Most pet owners don’t go a day without letting their dogs get a feel of the cool pool water just as anyone would love to.
It’s fun swimming in the pool on a hot afternoon but simply amazing to watch these pets swim.
