Some dogs might seem to enjoy a dip in the hot tub too, but pets and hot tubs really don't mix. The dog could get overheated, and their hair can be a disaster for filters and such. Invest in a heavy-duty cover that will stand up to the weight of your pet, and always make sure you keep your cover locked when you're not using it. Some manufacturers make metal (hard) covers that will hold much more weight. Dogs can also chew covers and scratch the sides of the tub. Installing an invisible electric fence around your tub or deck is one way to make sure pets don't destroy your spa investment.
